The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA is a gentle Alpha Hydroxy Acid to exfoliate and rejuvenate even sensitive skin. With Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate.
Why you need it:
The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA offers superficial dermal peeling that is gentler than other alpha hydroxy acids. The molecular weight of mandelic acid is 152.1 daltons which is larger than other alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid is 76.0 daltons, for example). This larger size allows mandelic acid to penetrate the skin more slowly which in turn makes it very gentle and suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. You don't need a concentration of more than 10%, because then you would simply be achieving an indirect peeling strength that is more easily offered through lower percentages of Glycolic Acid.
Alcohol-Free, Oil-Free, Silicone-Free, Nut-Free, Gluten-Free, Cruelty-Free, Vegan
Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance.
This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
