  • BACKGROUND Malignant melanoma is an agressive tumour related to the overproduction of melanin, which provides colors of skin, eyes and hair. In addition contributing to the risk of malignant melanoma, abnormal production of melanin has many drawbacks, including hyperpigmentation, post-inflammatory pigmentation, melasma and skin aging. Kojic acid is currently employed in order to lighten skin pigmentation and provide depigmentation. OBJECTIVE Mannich bases of kojic acid with the structure of 2… CONTINUE READING
