The Clarifying Astringent is formulated with glycolic acid (the AHA of choice), in an Amphoteric SystemTM. This patented controlled release technology slows the release of glycolic acid. The potential irritation of an AHA formula is primarily due to the rapid penetration of AHA free acid molecules into the skin. By controlling the release of the glycolic acid, the skin will tolerate a higher concentration, resulting in a faster exfoliation.
It will enhance exfoliation and effectively cleanse clogged pores without drying skin. Regular use will help refine pores providing a clearer and healthier-looking complexion.
Glycolic Acid (in a patented Amphoteric SystemTM): Glycolic acid, the smallest molecule of the AHA’s, accelerates the skin’s own natural shedding process. Known as the exfoliant of choice, glycolic acid helps to smooth the surface of dry, sun-damaged or aging skin improving roughness and minimizing fine lines by removing the build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
