One of the brands that stand out when we talk about skin lightening is Kojie San. It started back in 2007 with the Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap as its flagship product. I can still remember how my sister and I hoarded that soap whenever it went on sale. And I’m quite sure a lot of ladies (and gents) have their own Kojie San story. It won’t be today’s  #1 Kojic soap in the country for nothing.

What makes it a best seller, anyway?  The key ingredient in Kojie San soap is the Kojic acid, which is obtained from mushrooms and is a by-product in the fermentation process for sake, the Japanese rice wine. It is a natural acid that is primarily used for skin lightening. Who would have thought that after Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap, they would further expand and create a lightening range? Check them out below.


Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap

(PHP 68, 135g)

Of course, let’s first talk about the star of the range – where all of these started. Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap has high grade Kojic Acid, which prevents melanin production for lighter, clearer skin. It promises to diminish dark spots, freckles, acne, plus stretch marks and unevenness.

I remember I particularly loved to use Kojie San Skin Lightening Soap a few days after a beach trip and it helped me get lighter skin in just few weeks/months.
