@gymrat (and anyone who can help)
Is 15g kojic acid and 15g Alpha Arbutin too much for a 100g soap?
Can I please get any tips please, thank you!

I’m trying to make a lightening soap. It’s going to be 100g bar and I’m wondering what percentage of each powder is okay?

I’ve now decided to make it 3% for each powder so 3g Kojic Acid and 3g Alpha Arbutin? Is that enough?

I wanna lighten 2 shades then maintain, is using soaps enough to maintain?


I’ll also be adding 3-4% Alpha Arbutin to a lightening cream with other lightening ingredients in it when I’m in the lightening stages.

Recommended concentration 1-3% for Kojic Acid. You will need to warm your soap just a bit in order to get the KA to dissolve. Recommended concentration 0.2-2% for Alpha Arbutin. It will dissolve easily as its water soluble.

Alright thank you!

Can I maintain with soaps only?

Also, for my lighten cream I want to add 4% Alpha Arbutin to it


What do you think? Is it enough?
Can I just put the powder in the cream and it will dissolve since it’s water based?

One last question, Kojic & Alpha don’t give racoon eyes right?

Yes it will dissolve in a water based product like the one you have listed above. And no you won't get racoon eyes, lol. I wouldn't recommend something that would cause that ;)
