Here's What you Need to Know
Mandelic Acid is the new kid on the block when it comes to Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA). It's a gentle acid derived from bitter almonds.
The idea of smearing acid all over your face might not sound like the gentlest approach to skin health but it's one of the most effective.
Mandelic acid is the only AHA that has a natural antibiotic action.
How it Works
It works to accelerate cell turnover by dissolving the tiny bonds that hold skin cells together, helping to remove dead skin on the surface that can lead to dull complexions, as well as fine lines. It also strengthens collagen, one of the building blocks of the skin’s support network that gives it youthful firmness.
This mighty acid is loved by acne sufferers for its pore de-clogging qualities, it smoothes the skin and leaves you with that sought after glow.
Mandelic Acid is highly effective for:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Acne and congested skin
High risk skin (fitzpatrick IV-VI)
By combining multiple ingredients in a novel formulation, synergistic improvements in tolerability and efficacy are hypothesized.
