A gentle Mandelic Acid serum that is suitable for daily use: 5% Mandelic Acid with a pH of 4.
Mandelic Acid has a larger molecule size and exfoliates more gently than other AHA. Mandelic Acid reduces inflammation and congestion associated with acne.
In addition to Mandelic Acid, we include:
4% Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate
A stable form of Vitamin C that has been clinically proven to decrease congestion.
Skin barrier health is the cornerstone of healing acne, and ceramides are an important component of repairing leaky/damaged barriers.
Betaine (Beet Sugar)
This helps to draw moisture to the skin.
Sea Buckthorn Oil
Contains components to help with acne-specific inflammation and acne-specific topical hormonal issues.
Stalked Bulbine Extract:
A must-have ingredient when using AHA, this powerful extract helps the skin manufacture collagen that is high quality, not low. Also featured in our Soirée Peptides. It is so powerful, it is used in tattoo aftercare.
When the skin is “damaged,” even intentionally, as with tattoos, acids, microneedling, lasers, etc., the skin grows new collagen to replace and repair the damaged skin. It can sacrifice quality for quantity, in order to expedite the repair. Stalked Bulbine Extract increases the quality of the new collagen the skin is producing, ensuring the new collagen is of high quality, not low.
This type of support is rarely offered in AHA formulas, but it is a critical and holistic component of using acids safely and effectively on the skin.
Anti-inflammatory Botanical Complex:
Burdock, Celandine, Cleavers, Calendula, Dandelion and Marshmallow all soothe stressed skin.
Beet Sugar, Sodium PCA, the same next-gen moisturizing ingredient found in Soirée, a special anti-aging, anti-redness moisturizing peptide, Yerba Santa Extract, and just a touch of Abyssinian Oil (plus Ceramides) all offer moisture and comfort for the skin to support the AHA exfoliation.
