Hi everyone,

I've seen a website that sells the powder and I was thinking about buying some and adding it to my lotions. Has anyone done this?

I have used Kojic acid in products but never bought the powder and mixed it into anything I currently use.

Ondine and the others might be able to help you more.

I believe there are different types and the one you need to look for is Kojic Acid Dipalmitate. This is the more stable form. If you are going to add this make sure you read about how to handle the chemical, such as storage, ph bal. etc first.

You need to look into concentration levels, how the chemical appears, sensitivity to light, heat and oxidation.

I've never used the raw kojic acid powder. I have serious reservations about compounding my own products when it comes to using strong chemicals as I lack sufficient knowledge in this area.
