The primary active ingredient of this peel is Kojic Acid, a melanin inhibitor, to lighten pigment spots and skin discoloration. The product directs its activity to melanocytes, prohibiting over-production of melanin. Effective for all skin types, it fades freckles and age spots, balances melanin production, and evens out skin tone. Licorice root extract combined with kojic acid, mulberry, and bearberry offers the equivalent of 6% hydroquinone-based products, without the side effects. This active product is natural and hydroquinone-free.
