    Kojic acid is not safe for a DIY project in my opinion.

    Also 10% Kojic acid would be way too much. It is oxidatively unstable so generally the dipalmitate salt is used. In the end it is best not attempted unless you have a significant background. It is a bot like asking your Doctor for a DIY appendectomy procedure.
