Kojic acid is a melanin-specific inhibitor that binds to copper ions in cells after entering the skin cells, alters the steric structure of tyrosinase, and prevents the activation of tyrosinase, thereby inhibiting the formation of melanin. Kojic acid active agents have better tyrosinase inhibition than other active agents. It has been formulated into various cosmetics and is a widely used cosmetic active agent.
