INTRODUCTION: A number of biochemical and medical researchers have detected increased activity of tyrosinase in skin tumor cells. The most famous and available inhibitor, kojic acid, has several side effects and is not completely safe for use. OBJECTIVES: This paper describes the study of inhibitory influence of halogen boroxine K 2 [B 3 0 3 F 4 OH] on tyrosinase. The research was prompted by the ability of this compound to inhibit enzymes through metal ion chelation as well as its synthesis…

A study of the inhibition of catalase by dipotassium trioxohydroxytetrafluorotriborate K2[B3O3F4OH]
It appears that in the absence of inhibitor, catalase operates the best at conditions around pH 7.1 and in the presence of K2[B3O3F4OH] the optimum is around pH 6.2.
In vitro and in vivo antitumor activity of the halogenated boroxine dipotassium-trioxohydroxytetrafluorotriborate (K2[B3O3F4OH])
Under in vivo conditions, K2[B3O3F4OH] slows the growth of all three tumors tested compared to the control, and the inhibitory effect was most pronounced during the application of the substance.
Anti-tyrosinase and anti-cancer activities of flavonoids from Blumea balsamifera DC
Fractionation of an ethylacetate extract from leaves of Blumea balsamifera DC, led to isolation of nine flavonoids. The isolated compounds consisted of two dihydroflavonols,
Effects of dipotassium trioxohydroxytetrafluorotriborate (K2[B3O3F4OH]) on genetic material and inhibition of cell division in human cell cultures
Clastogenic activity has been confirmed, without evidences of aneugenic activity, in human lymphocytes and the impact on cell growth was evaluated by alamarBlue assay in basal cell carcinoma culture.
Loss of tyrosinase activity confers increased skin tumor susceptibility in mice
In vitro mechanistic studies demonstrated that transfection of the TyrCys allele in a human squamous cell carcinoma cell line increases tyrosinase enzyme activity and confers resistance to hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative DNA damage.

Final Report of the Safety Assessment of Kojic Acid as Used in Cosmetics
The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel concluded that the 2 end points of concern, dermal sensitization and skin lightening, would not be seen at use concentrations below 1%; therefore, this ingredient is safe for use in cosmetic products up to that level.
Tyrosinase and Tyrosinase Inhibitors
Melanin is responsible for skin color and plays an important role in protection of the skin against UV light induced damage and rate-limiting enzyme tyrosinase slows down the biosynthesis of melanin.
