Why It Works
Mulberry extract inhibits tyrosinase enzyme from oxidizing tyrosine amino acid and also acts as a natural skin brightener. Mulberries contain anthocyanins and riboflavin – powerful antioxidants that protect the body from free radical damage. The anti-tyrosinase in the extract also possesses anti-inflammatory efficacy which can help reduce skin redness. In addition to skin-lightening and antifungal effects of kojic acid, it also contains some antimicrobial properties that may help fight off several common types of bacterial strains even in small dilutions. This can help treat acne caused by bacteria in the skin
