Alpha hydroxy acids have increased greatly in popularity over the last decade. Alpha hydroxy acids are derived from fruit and milk sugars. The most commonly used alpha hydroxy acids are glycolic acid and lactic acid because they have a special ability to penetrate the skin.
Alpha hydroxy acids work mainly as an exfoliant. Alpha Hydroxy Acid rejuvenates the skin by peeling off the outer layers to reveal the fresher skin underneath in turn making room for re-growth of new skin. They are reported to improve wrinkling, roughness, and mottled pigmentation of damaged skin with the use of daily application. All our Creams are balanced at a Ph of 3.5. Phase I is a 2% Lactic Solution which will gently exfoliate and lift away dead surface cells. Lactic AHA stimulates the skin’s renewal rate and minimizes the appearance of fine lines by increasing skin’s capacity to retain moisture. Gentle enough to use everyday, best for beginner Alpha-hydroxy users.
