- Provides gentle exfoliation while simultaneously hydrating and calming the skin
- Reduce the impaction of dead surface cells leaving skin radiant, smooth, and clear
- Minimizes the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone
- Helps stimulate the skin’s natural desquamation process and improve the skin’s barrier
Glycolic Arginine Complex- an amphoteric hydroxy complex composed of glycolic acid bound to the amino acid arginine. These binding forces are responsible for the slow release of glycolic acid into the skin. This slow-release process leads to a lower peak concentration of glycolic acid in the skin, which is usually below the typical irritation threshold. As a result, skin irritation is diminished, allowing even sensitive skin to benefit from glycolic acid.
Lactic acid - an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in milk and sugars. It breaks down the bonds between cells (desmosomes) to allow for easier exfoliation of dead surface cells while hydrating the skin. Lactic acid inhibits melanogenesis by suppressing the formation of tyrosinase which helps to minimize the appearance of uneven skin tone.
Lactobionic Acid - a polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that is a gentle exfoliant, matrix metalloproteinases inhibitor (MMPi), humectant, antioxidant, and melanin inhibitor. It leaves the skin clear, bright, and with improved skin texture and tone.
Hydrolyzed Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Prickly Pear) Flower Extract - a botanical that is naturally rich in oligosaccharides (sugars and uronic acids). It has been shown to reactivate the endogenous (internal) desquamation process and improve the quality of barrier function, leaving skin smooth and hydrated.
Saccharide Isomerate - a plant-derived moisturizing agent that delivers instant and long-term hydration for up to 72 hours. It also improves skin barrier function to maintain moisture levels.
