Glycolic is considered the smallest of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), this allows it to effectively penetrate deeper into the skin, providing excellent collagen stimulation and dermal hydration abilities. The gentle exfoliator, thoroughly cleanses all areas of the skin, sloughing off dead skin cells, promoting surface cellular renewal, and regenerating the skin for a younger, healthier appearance.
Arginine is effective in transporting ingredients underneath the surface of the skin, stimulating blood flow and increasing poor circulation. This allows it to act as a natural moisturizing agent beneath the skin from the inside out. Additionally it binds to water to help lock in and balance moisture levels, while increasing absorption. Arginine also functions as an antioxidant to help naturally build collagen production, promoting elasticity and vitality.
Mandelic provides excellent results when used in the treatment of acne. It can improve inflammatory pustular, comedonal, and papular acne and has been shown to be effective even in individuals resistant to antibiotics. Mandelic has a larger molecular structure than glycolic acid making it less harsh and better tolerated on the skin. Mandelic is known to be a less harsh alternative to salicylic acid.
