EXFOLIATING ACIDS

While some acids help to hydrate and retain moisture in your skin, others provide exfoliation. Hydroxy acids are ingredients that gently yet effectively exfoliate your skin, and the most recognisable hydroxy acids are glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA).

GLYCOLIC ACID - ALPHA HYDROXY ACID (AHA)

Glycolic acid is the smallest alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) molecule, and when used on the skin, penetrates the epidermis and exfoliates the skin, sloughing off dead cells to reveal the new softer, smoother, even cells underneath.

SALICYLIC ACID - BETA HYDROXY ACID (BHA)

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that is able to move deep into your pores to break up sebum, helping to unclog pores and purify the look of skin. It’s oil-soluble, making it great for oily combination skin types.

BIO AGAVE ACID – POLY HYDROXY ACID (PHA)

Bio agave acid is extremely gentle on your skin, which works to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a brighter, healthier looking complexion.

HOW AHAS, BHAS & PHAS WORK TOGETHER

HYDRATING ACIDS

HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic acid is a well-known ingredient used in moisturizers, exfoliators, cleansers and even makeup! It is a sugar substance that your body natural produces to retain moisture levels and hydration, but as you age, the amount your body produces reduces. Using skincare products that are enriched with hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate your skin, and when skin is hydrated, its elasticity may be improved for a plumper-looking appearance.

POLYGLUTAMIC ACID

Like hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid provides INTENSE hydration to your skin! It’s 4x more hydrating that hyaluronic acid, and it creates a hydrated filter on the skin which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
