Glycolic Acid Face Cream with 2% glycolic acid for daily exfoliation, brightens your complexion by exfoliating skin using natural chemistry which transforms your outer dead skin cell layer to provide a radiant luster.
Glycolic Acid, a member of the AHA's (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), instantly brightens your complexion by exfoliating skin using natural chemistry which transforms your outer dead skin cell layer to provide a radiant luster. Unlike other products, a Glycolic Acid Face Cream is not washed off the face, so your skin is able to drink in the benefits of the glycolic acid all day and/or night long! Glycolic Acid also acts as a powerful skin lightener to combat irregular skin pigment, lighten and diminish the appearance of age spots.
We also added additional botanicals to our formula like Apple extract, which is rich in vitamins and promotes natural skin cell replacement and inhibits elastase, an enzyme which breaks down elastin and collagen helping maintain smooth, youthful skin. To round it out we added Allantoin originally derived from the Comfrey Plant, which is known to have moisturizing effects as well as properties that help create smooth, healthy skin. Not only does Allantoin help skin lock in moisture, it also encourages skin to shed dead cells and grow new ones, promoting healthy cell development and preventing dull, sallow skin. If you have sensitive, dry, or scaly skin, using products that contain Allantoin may benefit it by moisturizing, protecting, and healing all at the same time without causing any adverse effects.
Comes in a 4 ounce BPA free plastic jar. Made in USA.
Note: Glycolic Acid products can make your skin more vulnerable to the sun. Yes, we've repeated this because it is important. You should always use a sunscreen in conjunction with this, or any product that contains Glycolic Acid. We suggest using it at night but you can use it during the day as well, though we suggest wearing a hat, use sunscreen and limit sun exposure. Newly exfoliating skin can burn easily! DO NOT USE MORE THAN RECOMMENDED. We are not responsible for misuse of our product.
Instructions: Best used at bedtime, apply an even, pea-sized layer over entire face and neck avoiding the eye area. Precondition skin by limiting initial use to once every other evening. After one week, increase to every evening. Always use a broadspectrum sunscreen, and limit sun exposure while using this product. Not not use more than once per day. You can use in daytime but MUST wear sunscreen to avoid sunburn!
