  • Even skin texture and promote an overall smoother appearance
  • Help skin appear brighter
  • Help prevent clogging of the pores

  • 3% Mandelic Acid: Gently exfoliates the skin and smooths skin surface
  • 2.5% Gluconolactone (a PHA): Gently exfoliates and aids skin moisture
  • 0.5% Phytic Acid (Rice Bran): Gently exfoliates and helps oil-control
  • 0.5% Salicylic Acid: Helps to unclog pores
Sourcing Story
Our Rice Bran is sustainably sourced from the food industry. After rice has been 'polished', natural Phytic Acid is extracted, rather than being discarded, and used as an effective, gentle chemical exfoliator.

In all our formulas, the % levels of our ingredients have been mindfully chosen to be at the optimum levels for impact individually as well as being able to work in synergy to deliver visible results whilst being gentle enough for all skin types.

Key active ingredients
  • +3% Mandelic acid
    An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that has a larger molecular size than glycolic acid therefore doesn’t penetrate the skin as much and as such has much less potential to cause irritation, making it more user friendly for even sensitive skin, supported synergistically by…
  • +0.5% Phytic acid
    Derived from rice bran, a rich source of phytic acid which acts as a gentle chemical exfoliant as well as being a powerful antioxidant
  • +2.5% Gluconolactone
    A naturally derived polyhydroxy acid (PHA), that provides super mild exfoliation due to it’s large size (like mandelic acid). It has the ability to support skin barrier protection against other irritants as well as acting as a humectant and holding onto water in the skin, thus reducing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
  • +0.5% Salicylic Acid
    This is an encapsulated form of salicylic acid, with in vivo studies showing that it has less irritation on the skin versus the potential standard salicylic acid without compromising on efficacy i.e. exfoliating the oil layer of the skin and unclogging pores
  • +2.928% Annona Cherimola fruit extract
    This is a great ingredient for sensitive skin. It will help to counteract the drying or irritant potential of using chemical exfoliants, making this accessible to users with sensitive skin. At these inclusion levels, in-vivo studies showed that users who have a compromised skin barrier experienced significantly less skin discomfort
  • +10% Propanediol
    Supports additional moisturization and reduced TEWL

Use in the PM after cleansing, every other day.
