 Mandelic Acid is a skin-friendly alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from bitter almonds. What makes it 'skin-friendly' is its larger molecular size. This characteristic allows for a slower absorption into the skin, reducing the potential for irritation while still offering effective exfoliation. Ideal for those seeking a gentle yet potent skincare solution, Mandelic Acid stands out for its ability to address a broad spectrum of skin concerns such as acne and rosacea with minimal risk of irritation.

Key Benefits

  • Controlled Exfoliation: At an 8% concentration, L-Mandelic Acid provides a balanced approach to removing dead skin cells contributing to congestion.

  • Acne Management: Its antibacterial qualities target acne-causing bacteria, making it an effective option for managing acne. 

  • Hyperpigmentation and Aging: Aids in reducing hyperpigmentation, such as age spots and acne scars.

  • Skin Texture Improvement:  The serum works to refine pores and smooth out skin irregularities and texture, contributing to a more even and refined skin appearance.

Best Practices 

After toner, apply ⅓ of a dropper all over the skin. Always start off by using this serum 2-3x a week in the evenings to avoid sensitivity and irritation. If no irritation occurs after two weeks, you may start nightly or every other night application. Avoid the eye area when applying and use sunscreen daily while using this product.
