Glycolic Acid is a plant-derived alpha hydroxy acid which works by dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells so that they can be sloughed away from the surface of the skin. It is a powerful skin exfoliant and works specifically on the surface layer of the dermis to deliver skin that is brighter, younger and fresher looking and a complexion that is refined and even.
This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. We recommend wearing a daily SPF when using products containing glycolic acid.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells. It is an accessible skincare step that has the ability to make immediate and remarkable changes to the skin. The outermost layer of the skin is made up of dead skin cells and the process of replacing these cells slows down as we age. This leads to the complexion looking dull and lifeless. Effective daily exfoliation unclogs pores, evens out pigmentations spots, brightens the complexion and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The free acid value is the percentage of the acid which is actually absorbed into the skin, and it is agreed that a minimum of 4% (free acid value) is required for noticeable cell turnover. Furthermore, low pH formulations preserve the strength of glycolic acid for optimal efficacy on the skin.
Use am and pm. Apply exfoliate to a cotton pad and sweep over cleansed face avoiding the eye area.
