Brief Answer:
You can use it for prolonged period

Detailed Answer:
Kojivit gel contains kojic acid dipalmitate 2% which gives fast and effective result.IT gets your original colour back.It contains 2% of kojic acid which is not carcinogenic.Lab trials showed tumours or cancer with kojic acid having high percentage
This can be used for prolonged periods.
There are no side effects on continuous usage.
But,once the desired colour is achieved,it is better to preserve the drug and use other broad spectrum sunscreens.
