I used kojic acid soap made from the philippines...

by Lee
(NJ)

I am wanting to know why, when I used kojic acid soap specifically for a melasma spot on the right side of my face, that I am now left with a red blotch in place of where the brown spot was. Will this go away?.. it also seems that this red blotch is off to the side where the brown spot is located.

Answer:

Hi Lee, the red blotch is caused by peeling. You see, the papaya kojic soap is a bit strong skin whitening soap. When used on face with sensitive skin, it tends to peel more, so use not too often. Once the skin peels, reduce usage of the product within your comfort level only. Do not expose yourself to the sun when skin is peeling because it can make sun sensitive skin darker than before. Wear sunscreen if you need to go outdoors.

Scrub
by: Anonymous

Hello, i had red spots na rin after 1 week of using papaya soap.. I don't like this. Is it okay for me to use scrub products? Please help. :'(

Answer:

Hello, scrubbing is generally not recommended when you are using the papaya soap because the soap can induce mild peeling. When skin is peeling, that is fresh skin exfoliating and when you scrub, it can hurt skin. It can turn red and darker when healed.

If you're developing itchy red rashes while using the soap, discontinue because that is a sign of sensitive skin and/or irritation. Choose a milder skin lightening soap like Dermaline Black Soap.

best product ever
by: shahida jamila jafrin

I use papaya kojic acid soap since three years...and it is really a helpful product! but my question is if I now discontinue using it will my skin become darker as before?

Answer:

Hi Shahida, if you discontinue, your skin will get back to its original skin tone in a month or two. If you want to keep the lighter skin for as long as you want, minimal maintenance is necessary - like using the skin whitening soap 1-2x a week, but sunscreen should remain daily in your skin care regimen to prevent sun damage and tanning further.

Hope that helps.

The Kojic can works even I have acne and scars on my face?
by: Jack

Hello, I've been using the kojic for about 3 days but my face drying and my acne began to harden but it doesn't hurt much... so is it okay using kojic whole face with acne and scars on it?

Answer:

Yes Jack, it's ok to use the kojic soap on face ONCE a day because besides the purpose of lightening dark acne scars, the soap can also control further acne because of the mild exfoliation (peeling) that can remove excess dirt and oil from skin. However, if the peeling dries out your skin or stings too much, simply lessen the use of the soap to within your comfort level only.

After the scars peel can you stop using
by: Jay Jay

Hello, this website is great, i have 2 questions please anwer them both thoroughly..

1. I have been using the skin whitening cream to exfoliant and get rid of scarring and damaged skin, after the peeling effect on the scars can i stop using and keep the clean scar-less skin?

2. Can it also get rid of a tan?

Answer:

Thanks Jay Jay for the kind compliment. To answer your questions:

1. Use once a day and mild peeling occurs to remove the dark scars. After you see the desired result (lightened the dark spots), you can discontinue but the problem recurring is always possible - because the same factors that caused it would still be there. However, maintenance is very minimal. Use 1-2x a week only to keep the dark spots at bay.

2. Yes, it can.

Hope that helps.

how to use glutathione soap
by: new user

Hi! im starting to do things to whiten my skin.. 1m 20 and i didnt use any other whitening soap before. i wanted to whiten my whole body especially my underarm and nape. what should i use? i bought kojic acid soap with gluta.. ive seen your comment that theres an instruction with the soap. i didint see the instructions so im not using it yet.. but if what you mean is the instruction at the box, yeah there it is.. so should i start using it? or are you going to recommend another soap suit for me? thank you! :)

Answer:

Hello, the instructions for white Glutathione Soap is the same as that for the papaya soap because it is also a strong potent soap. Basically, the most important things to remember are:

1. Use once a day, or lesser if you feel uncomfortable with any of the peeling, dryness, or stinging (especially on sensitive areas like face, neck, underarms and inner thighs). Use within your comfort level.
2. Moisturize as necessary.
3. Wear sunscreen when outdoors daily at daytime.

Hope that gives you a better idea.

darken underarm of kojic
by: unhappy

:( i used kojic for last few weeks, i tried it in my whole body and even my underarms too. but my underarms goes dark and it peels :'( how many days would be this be peeling? can my underarms comes back to white again?

Answer:

Hello, if you used our Dermaline Papaya Kojic Soap, our instruction sheet has a special section for dark underarms to guide you well for best results. If you didn't follow them carefully, chances are dark underarms could have been worse. But if it's not our kojic soap, here's some tips for you.

Discontinue the soap for now, leave skin to heal for at least 2 weeks. When it's dry and has no more signs of redness, you can start anew, but this time, use less often like 2-3x a week only, or even lesser depending on your skin sensitivity. And avoid tight clothing during this process.

Hope that helps.

I use bleach on skin but has burnt
by: very sad women

In one parlor one women had used bleach on my face to glow but my skin had burnt and I had then not use anything lighten my burnt till 8 to 10 years because my cute baby was born and I had to take care of him.
But now can I get back my natural skin again?

Answer:

Hello there, either the skin bleaching treatment you used contained very harsh chemicals, or there was improper use that caused your skin to burn. Skin bleaching is indeed offered in some parlors so you have to be well guided by the salon professionals on how to prepare and use it well.

Nevertheless, skin bleachers seem to be a more drastic approach if your purpose is to lighten skin.

Our skin lighteners contain safer natural-based skin whitening ingredients. Check out our skin whitening soap lotion cream kits that you can use for face and body to reverse the discoloration.

Hope that helps.

I think I over used the soap
by: Very Sad Girl

When I first started using kojic soap I used it 2 times a day for 3 minutes each, and it worked pretty well I got really light really fast and this was within a 3week period,but when the burning started to slow down I would use the soap even longer for like 2 times a day for 10 minutes each and now my skin is getting darker and it dosen't burn as much what shuld I do please help!!!

Answer:

Yes, Very Sad Girl, you did overuse the skin whitening soap. The papaya soap is strong and can overdry skin, thinning the epidermis as well. This made your skin over-sensitive to the sun and little sun exposure can cause sun damage and unwanted darkening.

For now, rest skin for 2-3 weeks, moisturize daily, then you can resume the use of the same whitening soap. But this time, use ONCE A DAY, moisturize as necessary, and a few weeks after you see the lighter results, you do NOT need to use daily anymore.

Maintenance is only 1-2x a week to keep the results lasting for as long as you wish.

Hope that helps.

I need help!!!!

I had really bad dark spots between my thighs because of rubbing I started using kojic acid and glutathione soap now my skin is red and peeling I used the soap about 3 times a week now I haven't used it in about two days. Is this a thing where the soap makes it look worse before it gets better? Help i don't know what to do.

Answer:

Hello, if you recall the instruction sheet, use any skin whitening product (soap, lotion or cream) within your comfort level only (pls review it again). If 3x a week makes you uncomfortable - red, sore, itching, stinging or peeling badly - reduce further to maybe 2x a week only. It is best to do it slowly but safer for your sensitive skin type. The soaps you are using are strong potent skin whiteners, so you might want to switch to a milder soap like the Black Licorice Soap.

Hope that helps.

SOS
by: Anonymous

I used Kojic acid soap. Masyado sguro akong na-excite knowing nga na nakakaputi ang product na to. After cleaning my body, I tried to put the soap on my neck. Naparami ata ang lagay ko. i experienced a sudden heat/burning effect on my neck.. sabi ko sa sarili ko, ok lang ata yun. baka yun talaga effect ng soap.. pero as the time goes by hindi ko na nakaya yung burning sensation.. I washed it with water. Kahit na natanggal ko na yung soap, parang sinusunog pa din. Then after, i checked it on the mirror, I WAS SO SHOCKED THAT IT TURNED DARKER. I didn't know what should i do that time. Until now, may face and neck doesn't have the same complexion.

Do you have any suggestion or words for me? I'm already suffering with this skin discoloration for months. It is really embarrassing. PLEASE HELP ME. I beg.

Answer:

Hello, the neck is a thin and sensitive area. The papaya soap is a strong whitening soap and is not for sensitive areas of skin. Although stinging, itching, redness and peeling are normal side effects, one should use the skin whitening soap within your comfort level.

For now, let skin heal until all the redness and stinging are gone. Try to find a milder Black Lightening Soap which can induce milder burning and peeling for dark neck. Use lesser if necessary, and wear sunscreen everyday.

Hope that helps.

skin discoloration
by: Anonymous

Hi, does this skin whitening soap help with sun damaged skin, melasma, pigmentation, and skin discoloration?

If yes, I live in Canada and how can I order one?

Thanks so much,
Angela

Answer:

Yes Angela, the Dermaline Black Soap and SKin Whitening Cream can help in lightneing dark spots on face like melasma, dark acne marks, pigmentation and discoloration due to sun exposure. You can also use just the Black Soap if that's what your budget allows only. Using both soap and cream can only make results better and faster, but any individual lightening product can work alone, just slower. :)

LiGhtens buT didnt rem0ve darksP0ts
by: Kojic user

Hi, i've beEn using k0jic f0r 3weeks n0w and i already experienced peeling and drying f0r the last 2wks and i d0nt mind it all,n0w for my 4th weEk the peELing stopS and my skin got whiter but dark spots and pimple marks are still there . What shud i do?

Answer:

Hello, the dark spots may have too much melanin pigments and may take more time to get lighter. Continue using the skin lighteners but maybe just 2-3x a week only since your skin got lighter already. However, dont forget to wear sunscreen when outdoors because skin is sun sensitive at this point.

Hope that helps.

Hi i used a kojic papaya soap for mybody after 3 days of used my skin peeled how long will i see the lightening effect?

Answer:

Hello, in the first or two weeks, use once a day, peeling is normal, together with dryness, stinging and itching. Use within your comfort level only and reduce usage if necessary, until you reach the desired results. All these effect will fade away in a few days and lightening should occur as the new skin resurfaces.

Thereafter, maintenance is minimal, 1-2x a week only.

kojic soap for me
by: Anonymous

Hi, I have fair skin during my childhood years. I only begin to tan when I'm around 20's (I love outdoor activities-reason why I tan). So if I use kojic soap and get the result I wanted, then stop using the skin lightening product afterwards, will I tan again?

Answer:

Yes, skin darkening can recur with sun exposure. Therefore, skin lightening is not permanent. Please also remember, too much sun exposure does not only tan skin, but also damages skin because of the UVA rays that cause skin cancer.

Hello, different papaya soaps work differently on various skin types. Not all papaya soaps are the same. Seems you are developing a negative reaction (our papaya soap is strong), you have to discontinue.

kojic soap very itchy
by: Anonymous

ive used it to my body with in a week...
after that my skin got very itchy..
what is the meaning of that?

Answer:

Hello, itching is normal due to the dryness and imminent peeling that can occur to exfoliate the dark spots on skin. However, if you're uncomfortable, reduce usage of the skin whitening soap AND hydrate skin with your favorite moisturizing lotion.

Other thing, if the itching is accompanied by rashes, it's a sign of irritation and the product should be discontinued.

Kojic acid soap
by: Anonymous

Hey there after using this soap like three days my skin is pelting off especially around my chin red spot on my cheek should I keep using it cause it's not lightning me face yet???
PLZ reply ASAP

Answer:

Hello, the mouth area is a thinner-skinned area of the face and normally peels earlier. Reduce usage of the papaya soap to prevent too much dryness or peeling. If reddish, allow to heal first before resuming the regimen.

Remember, avoid the area too, use once a day or lesser, moisturize as necessary, because the papaya soap is a strong skin lightening soap.

Hello, for sensitive skin, it is best to use skin whitening products with arbutin or licorice because these are milder. Still, dryness will be a side effect due to the mild peeling process, so moisturization is highly recommended in your regimen.

Answer:

Hello, redness can still be normal, however it seems you;re uncomfortable and might get worse. Redness is a sign of exfoliating/peeling skin to come. Reduce usage, especially for the chest area which is sensitive and thin, maybe to 2-3x a week only. Remember, use any skin whitener within your comfort level only.

Itchy skin
by: Anonymous

i used kojic soap for 1 week already. i really feel itchy. is it ok if i scrub my skin using an ordinary soap then followed by a kojic soap?. i just notice that for 1 week my skin got glossy, is that an indication that my skin glows already?.. please reply, i really want to know if i have to continue using this soap.. thanks

Answer:

Hello, if the itch does not come with skin rashes, that may be part of the normal side effects of dryness and peeling. If with rashes, it's irritation so discontinue use. The product is not for you because it might be too strong for your sensitive skin.

The glossy look comes during and after peeling because of the accompanying dryness. Hydrate skin with your favorite moisturizer.

Remember, skin lightening should not be a discomfort. Use within your comfort level only. If daily use is uncomfortable, reduce usage to 2-3x a week only.

I'm using Kojic glutatthione soap for 2 months and it's very effective but last 3 weeks, my skin and face beginning to produce red rashes. Am i going to stop using this product or switch to kojic papaya?

Amswer:

Hello, simply reduce usage of the glutathione soap. You should be on the maintenance stage already. Meaning, after you reach your desired results, instead of the regular daily use, maintenance is only 1-2x a week.

Otherwise, skin can get too dry and irritated from overuse. So just try not to use the soap everyday and see if that will work better for your maintenance regimen.

Maria

Interesting.. I knew it would 'peel' but as of now, the peeling has stopped and the dark spot is still there.

Answer:

Hello, peeling is not an indication that the lightening will stop once it (peeling) fades. The skin whitening ingredients can also work on peeled skin to lighten the dark spots. Continue using the skin whitening products at a reduced frequency (to avoid over-peeling) and wear sunscreen to prevent further skin darkening.

i used kojic soap for 3weeks now my face still peeling off and itchy i found out that i started to develop wrinkles from my forehead and side of my eyes is this an allergic reaction? do i have to continue to use this soap? pls help...

Answer:

Hello, the papaya kojic soap is a strong soap for the face and induces dryness due to skin peeling. Reduce usage of the soap if you're uncomfortable, and moisturize skin daily to alleviate the dryness (wrinkly feel). Use the kojic soap within your comfort level.
