A punchy resurfacing serum that visibly reduces the effects of hyperpigmentation, blemish scars, uneven tone, texture & the first signs of aging. Powerhouse exfoliator Glycolic Acid has the highest strength but smallest molecular weight of the Alpha-Hydroxy Acid family, making it more effective at penetrating the skin.
The science(y) bit: it penetrates the skin and lowers the pH level, prompting cell turnover accelerating the repair and renewal processes.
The results bit: bright, even, youthful skin.
Directions: Use daily on cleansed skin as part of your PM routine taking breaks every other day. No guess work required with application amount; the button pipette delivers the required dose. Minimal tingling and/or redness is expected but as with all acid treatments build up skin tolerance gradually if irritation persists. Must be used in conjunction with daily broad-spectrum SPF due to increased skin sensitivity to sunlight during use.
Warnings: Not suitable for sensitive, broken, or peeling skin. Do not consume. Avoid the eye area. Keep out of reach of children.
pKa/pH balanced This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Glycolic Acid has a pKa of 3.8. pH and pKa are important values in acid products. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH the effectiveness of an acid is maximised while irritation is reduced. High differences between pH and pka can make a formula irritating.
