This is a very strong blend of powerful ingredients that help get rid of dark spots, acne scars and uneven skin tone.

It uses pure Kojic acid that can deliver amazing results as early as 6-12 weeks.  

Use it once a day during the first week to allow your skin time to adjust to the soap. After that you can use the soap twice a day.

Remember not to leave it on longer than 30 seconds!

Dry skin

Skin that is tight, rough and cracked are often seen in people with dry skin.
It can be caused by low temperatures, hot showers and harsh soaps and detergents.

That’s why you should look for a Kojic acid soap for hyperpigmentation that will help to even out hyperpigmentation without irritating your skin further.

A natural Kojic acid soap with vegetable oils, cocoa butter, olive oil, aloe vera, jojoba, and avocado will work best with your skin.

You should also watch out for fragrances, ethyl, and alcohol since these ingredients can dry out AND irritate your skin.

What’s great about this soap is that its formula was made to give all the benefits of a Kojic acid soap without drying your skin.

It doesn’t contain harsh chemicals such as SLS that can cause further drying in people with already dry skin. 

If that hasn’t convinced you to try it out, then its blend of Kojic acid, papaya extract, Hyaluronic acid, arbutin, tocopherol and licorice root extract will.

These are all natural ingredients that will deeply nourish, soothe and retain moisture in your skin, combating dryness.

Oily skin

Did you know that not all people who have oily skin suffer from acne?

Having large pores, occasional blackheads and a shiny appearance to your face is a good indicator that your skin is oily.

Oil on your skin isn’t bad. In fact its actually quite normal to have them as they keep your skin hydrated but having too much oil can cause problems for your skin as it increases your chances of getting acne.

So what causes our skin to become oily? The thing is there’s no one simple answer to that question.

You, having oily skin, can be affected by many things. Such as gender, race, weather and even the time of the year.  

More often than not men suffer from oily skin compared to women. That’s because of higher testosterone levels – the primary male hormone. People with darker skin are often troubled by this too, because of genetics. 

In general, you can expect your skin to produce more oil around spring and summer time (especially in humid weather). 

When you’re looking for a Kojic acid soap you want to look for one that has aloe vera. Aloe vera is a good moisturizer not only for people with oily skin but also for those with acne.

We recommend Relumins Advance Glow Formula Papaya Kojic Blend Soap.

This all-natural bar soap is great for oily skin. Why is that, you ask? That’s because it has no harsh chemicals. It has the benefit of evening out hyperpigmented skin by only using Arbutin, papaya and Kojic acid plant extracts. 

Just make sure to use the soap at least twice a day if your skin can tolerate it. Regular washing with a gentle Kojic acid soap that has aloe vera is a good way of controlling oil production in your skin.

Combination Skin

If you have areas on your face that are oily and some parts that are dry, then you must find it tricky to pick the right soap to use.

As if dealing with darkened, uneven skin tone isn’t enough, you also have to worry about finding a soap that won’t disrupt the pH of your skin any further. But don’t worry! There’s a Kojic acid soap that’s right for you.

Kojic acid soap for Sensitive skin

You’ll be surprised to know that out of all the people in the world, 38.4% have sensitive skin. Crazy isn’t it?

Products that we use on our faces, climate changes and skin barrier problems are the most common reasons why someone can have sensitive skin.

Kojic acid soap is generally not recommended for people with sensitive skin but if you find that you absolutely must try Kojic acid soap (with permission from your skin doctor, of course!) then you can try Kojic acid dipalmitate.

How is it different from Kojic acid soap?

Kojic acid dipalmitate is actually derived from Kojic acid soap but compared to a regular Kojic acid soap, it’s more stable, oil soluble and less irritating to the skin.

We recommend Skin Magical Rejuvenating Maintenance Kojic, Papaya, Gluta & Arbutin Skin Whitening Soap.

This soap was made with Kojic dipalmitate, papaya extract, lemon peel, orange extract peel, Alpha-arbutin, glutathione, vitamin A, vitamin E, coconut oil, niacinamide, Citric acid and Glycolic Acid.

This gentle soap cleanses and rejuvenates your skin. It also has anti-irritant properties that can calm your skin after peeling.

Like with any product, you should do a SPOT TEST first to see how your skin would react.

How to do a Spot test:

  1. On the inner, lower part of your arm, apply the soap 
  2. Allow it to dry on your skin. Leave it on for at least 24 hours
  3. Check for signs of reaction

If you notice a rash, burning, tingling, or inflammation, immediately wash the soap from your skin and don’t use it any further.


Kojic works incredibly well for you if you are one of the fortunate people who does not have issues with sensitive, dry, or greasy skin. However, it is untrue; folks with sensitive and oily skin cannot use this as a therapy. They can choose from a large selection from Kojic that is ideal for their skin type. Relumins Advanced Glow Formula Papaya Kojic Blend Soap is most suited for those with oily skin types, whereas Koji White Kojic Acid and Papaya Skin Lightening Soap is ideal for dry skin. Maintenance Skin Magical Rejuvenating Skin Whitening Soap with Kojic, Papaya, Gluta & Arbutin is excellent for sensitive skin types.
