Essential for overnight cell renewal and smoother-looking skin. Exfoliating Glycolic Acid helps reveal younger-looking skin while soothing Aloe Vera calms and reduces redness.

KEY INGREDIENTS:

 

Glycolic Acid (15%)

  • Naturally occurring acids derived from Sugar Cane penetrate more deeply and more quickly than other exfoliating agents like enzymes because they have a smaller molecular structure. These acids support natural cellular turnover and help improve the skin’s texture and appearance.
  • Helps to penetrate 10-15 cells deep of the Stratum Corneum, reflecting more light and giving the skin a more youthful appearance. 
  • Stimulates new cell production to increase moisture content, and lowers pH for enhanced product absorption.

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice

  • Renowned for its moisturizing, soothing properties and ability to aid healing, Aloe Vera helps prevent immune suppression caused by UVB rays by repairing damage to the Langerhans cells, and by reducing redness and inflammation.
  • Its role in wound healing has been attributed to its capacity to accelerate the turnover of collagen. Salicylate and Carboxypeptidase are in part responsible for anti-inflammatory activity.
  • Sourced from a farm in Texas, it is stabilized after harvest through a cold temperature process to limit oxygen exposure and retain its nutrients.

Bilberry Fruit/Leaf Extract

  • Provides potent anti-inflammatory benefits, and promotes the skin’s defense system and anti-aging effects on collagen structures with its antioxidant properties.
  • Known for its ability to help heal scars and wounds.
  • Contains high levels of fatty acids, prized for their regenerating and nourishing properties.
