This is a professional-strength acid kojic soap that combines pure kojic acid and papain, which promise a fairer and even-toned skin, if used daily. The difference between this kojic acid soap and the other kojic soaps in the market is the formulation. Not all kojic soaps are the same. Most kojic soaps have very little kojic acid in it and this is why you’re not seeing any significant effect. Marie France uses high concentration of kojic acid and papain, both are known to help make the skin look even, fairer, smoother and younger with daily use. The process is gradual, it doesn’t happen overnight. It normally takes 8-12 weeks before you see the maximum results – this really depends on your skin sensitivity. This soap can be used on both face and body.

Why you should try and why this kojic acid soap is for you:
There are three main reasons why:
1. It works. We get it - you want something that works for your skin and will resolve your skin problems. This is why we put you in mind when this soap was created. Our R&D team made sure that your soap contains the maximum amount of kojic acid and papain to show significant results in eight to twelve weeks.
2. It's made with the finest ingredients. All of the products that we make for you is made in Europe. Why is the origin of the ingredients important? One word - potency. Most of the ingredients that you find in skincare products are made in China. Chinese-made ingredients are not potent at all.
3. You know who made it. You've probably done your research and found that there are lot of kojic acid soaps out there. We're assuming that you also noticed one thing that these soaps have in common: they don't come in a box. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938, as amended 21 U.S.C. 321-392 states: "The cosmetics marketed in the United States, whether they are manufactured here or are imported from abroad, must comply with the labeling requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act, the Fair Packaging and Labeling (FP&L) Act, and the regulations published by the Food and Drug Administration under the Authority of these two laws. The FD&C Act was enacted by Congress to protect consumers from unsafe or deceptively labeled or packaged products by prohibiting the movement in interstate commerce of adulterated or misbranded food, drug devices and cosmetics." The USFDA requires proper labeling for every product that comes in to the US. It must state the manufacture's name, address, origin, product name and weight. If the soap doesn't have a label or box that tells you these information, then how would you know who made it and where it came from?
WARNING: This kojic soap might cause irritation for individuals with sensitive skin. A heavy moisturizer is required while using this product.
What to expect and other drawbacks:
- Your skin is going to look like it’s dry.
- Your skin might feel tight and itchy. What to do: add more moisturizer to your skin – preferably a heavy moisturizer.
- Your skin may look red – If your skin turns red, this is either because you leave the soap longer that the recommended time frame or you have a sensitive skin. We do not recommend this soap on individuals with sensitive skin. If you have a combination skin type and experience redness while using the kojic soap, then please use the soap three times a week for no more than 15 seconds until you build tolerance to kojic acid and papain.
- Burning/tingling sensation – this is normal for the first week of use, however, you need to temporarily use this soap every 3 days until your skin gets used to the kojic acid and papain extract. Also, do not leave the soap on for more than 15 seconds. If burning sensation persists, discontinue use permanently.
- Breakout – breaking out the first couple of days while using the product is normal. Breaking out or getting pimples is more than likely going to happen especially if you have blackheads, whiteheads or if you’re acne-prone.
When will you see results: Please be realistic with your expectation. This kojic soap can help your skin if you use it the right way and if you use it continuously. If you are trying to even out your skin tone, it will take time before you see it happen. The average time frame before seeing any significant result is between 6-12 weeks of daily use. This kojic soap is not a magic soap. It will NOT make your skin tone fairer in a few days. It will take time, so please be patient.
For best results: Use Marie France Tone Perfecting Creme or Lotion. We recommend using the Tone Perfecting Crème for face and the Tone Perfecting Lotion for the body.
