Risks and side effects

For example, the use of kojic acid can make someone more prone to developing a sunburn since melanin helps protect the skin from sun damage due to UV rays and, as it prevents the production of melanin, leaves the skin more vulnerable to sunburn.

To avoid this, it is recommended to use a sunscreen with protection factor equal to 50 or higher. This will form a protective barrier, which will prevent the skin from being hurt by the incidence of the sun's rays during the use of products that contain kojic acid.
