This high-tech, Alpha Hydroxy Acid serum resurfaces acne-prone, inflamed and dull skin. L- Mandelic Acid is a multifunctional Alpha Hydroxy Acid that works to reduce redness, and inflammation caused by acne and rosacea. It also works well to improve the appearance of fine lines, and sun-related pigmentation. Mandelic Acid is an effective 5-Alpha Reductase inhibitor. 5-Alpha Reductase is an enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT (dihydrotestosterone), a more potent testosterone derivative that promotes sebaceous gland activity. As the sebaceous glands become more active, sebum and acne lesions may increase.

Key Ingredients:

  • L-Mandelic Acid (15%): an alpha hydroxy acid derived from almonds with reported benefit in treating acne and hyperpigmentation.  This chirally-correct, L-Mandelic Acid, has a larger molecular weight than other AHA’s which allows for a slower epidermal penetration, resulting in a more even exfoliation with less irritation.
  • Lactic Acid: An Alpha Hydroxy Acid that helps reduce acne breakouts and signs of aging, like wrinkles. It helps lighten and brighten the skin for those with any skin discolorations, and is commonly used to exfoliate the skin by encouraging the shedding of dead skin cells. Lactic acid formulations are derived from beets.
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B3): a water-soluble conditioning agent that is a derivative of niacin. It's used as a skin stimulant and skin smoother.  Also known to help with the recovery of rough, dry, or flaky skin. By increasing the ceramides found in our skin, vitamin B3 improves the skin's suppleness. Naturally derived from non-GMO brown rice.
