Key Ingredients

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid belongs to the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) family. The small molecular structure of glycolic acid allows it to penetrate the skin more readily, allowing it to work deep within the pores. Glycolic acid loosens the build up of dead skin cells and oils to help reduce blackheads and breakouts.

The exfoliating action of glycolic acid removes old skin cells, helping to reduce pigmentation for a more even skin tone. Glycolic acid has also been shown to stimulate collagen production, which will help reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Glycolic acid also improves absorption of other ingredients, like retinol or vitamin C, enhancing their effect on the skin.

Glycolic Acid rescued my skin!

I’ve been struggling with acne scars for a long time & finally came across your glycolic acid serum. It’s been a perfect match since 2 weeks ago & am looking forward to the full results

P.S. please also make complementary essential oils like tea tree, sandalwood etc cause I’m so in love with your brand!

Love the texture!

I started using this serum as my exfoliating step and I'm impressed! I can feel it tingling when I first put it on, but it doesn't feel harsh or stripping. I love the texture. Looking forward to seeing the results with more use!
