Description

With 30% Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (Glycolic/Lactic/Tartaric/Citric), 2% Beta Hydroxyl Acid (Salicylic Acid), Hyaluronic Acid Crosspolymer, Vitamin B5, Black Carrot and Tasmanian Pepperberry.
Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin's topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. This combined 32% AHA/BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and for improved skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use.
This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. This formula is further supported with a crosspolymer form of hyaluronic acid for comfort, Vitamin B5 to assist healing and black carrot as an antioxidant.
Note: This formula contains a very high concentration of free acids. We recommend use only if you are an experienced user of acid exfoliation and your skin is not sensitive.
Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions.
This pH of this formula is approximately 3.6. Glycolic Acid, the primary AHA used in the formula, has a pKa of 3.6 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic.

A real hit for me

I have a complexion without wrinkles, its combination, but with a mass of tiny pimples on the forehead, and with visible pores on the rest of my face. I thought that nothing would help me with my forehead and the pores, because I used a few peels with no success, but this product is a miracle !!

After three times of using this peeling I now have a complexion that is smooth and uniform - really! Secondly, the small pimples on the forehead have decreased and this is only after a few uses.

The skin is smooth, tense. I leave it on a little longer than recommended, but I did not notice any damage. After using it I put on a face mask. I am very happy because it really does what the manufacturer promises.

A real gem

This is my first acid peeling and I'm already in love. Strong, can irritate, but my skin is not sensitive.It is closed in a classic bottle for the ordinary.

The liquid itself is slightly dense, wonderfully pink and without smell. It spreads easily over the skin. It can gently pinch! It's really strong. If you have a skin prone to irritation, it may not work for you.

I leave the peeling for 5-7 minutes because I'm afraid of it exfoliating my skin too much.

After washing (which is a bit of problem, because the gel-like consistency requires a few minutes to come off) the skin is absolutely incredibly delicate, soft, exfoliated and young. It not only exfoliates, but firms and just does wonders.

In addition, it is really long-lasting, you only need to use it once a week to achieve a satisfactory result. I am really happy and almost shocked that I discovered it so late. I will come back, I will not betray it to anything else.

very long-lasting
it's difficult to wash off
