* Melanin: A substance generated when exposed to ultraviolet rays. Excessive generation can cause stains

 

・ Kojic acid: produced during fermentation process of koji. Inhibition of melanin production

 

・Ferulic acid: A type of polyphenol. Suppresses production of melanin which causes stains

 

・ Albumin: Prevents the creation of stains and thins out those that already exist

 

・ Free linoleic acid: A component with a high whitening effect. Leads to skin with transparency

・ Fruit acid (AHA): Removes old keratin that is no longer needed when applied to the skin, promoting turnover

 

6.Improvement of acne
