Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 7% toning solution offers mild exfoliation for improved skin radiance and visible clarity. The formula thus improves the appearance of skin texture with continued use.
Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in color seasonally and this color variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. The formula is further supported with inclusion of ginseng root and aloe vera for both visible radiance and soothing benefits.
Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection.
This pH of this formula is approximately 3.6. Glycolic acid has a pKa of 3.6 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing the effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic.
Note: While exfoliating acids can result in rapid visible benefits, we generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in the favor of direct forms. Please refer to NIOD's Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a reference.
Use ideally in the PM, no more than once a day. After cleaning, saturate a cotton pad with the formula and sweep across face and neck. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes. Do not rinse off. Continue with additional skin treatments as needed. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), which may increase its skin's sensitivity to the sunburn.) Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week thereafter. Use only as directed.)
