5% Mandelic Serum is an alpha hydroxy acid serum that contains the chirally correct versions of both L-Mandelic Acid and L-Lactic Acid. These key ingredients offer exfoliating properties and can help diminish the appearance of discoloration. Niacinamide offers antioxidant support for the skin. Mandelic acid has a larger molecular weight than other alpha hydroxy acids, slowing down epidermal penetration resulting in a more even exfoliation with less irritation.
This water-based serum is appropriate for all skin types when 8% Mandelic Serum cannot be tolerated.
