How to use it

KAD Powder can be mixed directly into your body or face cream base to help reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone.  KAD can also be used in cosmetic formulations made from scratch at recommended dosage levels of 2-5%.

Add 2g – 5g of KAD Powder to about 30-40ml of heated carrier oils (70-80°C) and mix well to dissolve. Add mixture to 100ml of your face or body cream base or water-based formula and mix well.

Use Kojic acid dipalmitate creams 2 to 3 times per week to ensure that your skin can tolerate the ingredient, frequency can be increased to twice daily if well tolerated.

Sunscreen usage is required daily because KAD causes skin sensitivity to UV rays. Improvement of skin tone can be achieved from 6 to 10 weeks with consistent use. KAD based creams do not cause permanent skin colour change, skin will revert to original tone when product use is discontinued.
