18% Mandelic Acid
- The larger molecular size of Mandelic Acid allows it to penetrate the skin more slowly which in turn makes it very gentle less likely to cause irritation.
- 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.
- Penetrates into the deeper layers of skin to inhibit melanin production. Reduces hyperpigmentation and discolouration,
- Helps to regulate sebum production and in turn decrease the occurrence of breakouts.
