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.
With a free acid-value of 6.8% and a pH of 3.8, Exfoliate is suitable for all skin types and delivers instant skin benefits. 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.
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.
