Key Ingredients and Benefits
Lactic Acid (AHA)
A natural and biocompatible exfoliant for effective removal of epidermal dead skin cells, responsible for congestion. In addition to exfoliation, lactic acid is known for its moisturising properties. Lactic acid is a natural humectant that draws and holds water in the upper layers of the skin. It is ideal for those with slightly sensitive, dry, or allergy-prone skin.
Mandelic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) extracted from bitter almonds which effectively addresses a range of conditions including hyperpigmemntation, acne and fine lines. AHA’s work to accelerate cell turnover, helping to remove dead skin cells that can lead to dull complexions as well as fine lines. Mandelic acid also helps to support collagen to reduce fine lines. Mandelic acid has been shown to reduce hyperpigmentation by as much as 50% in four weeks resulting in a more evenly toned complexion.
Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) obtained from white willow bark. It is excellent for acne sufferers as it is able to remove dead cells and debris which is trapped in pores.
