    Key ingredients that make this serum work

    Glycolic Acid

    Glycolic acid belongs to the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) family. The small molecular structure of glycolic acid allows it to penetrate the skin more readily, allowing it to work deep within the pores. Glycolic acid loosens the build up of dead skin cells and oils to help reduce blackheads and breakouts.

    The exfoliating action of glycolic acid removes old skin cells, helping to reduce pigmentation for a more even skin tone. Glycolic acid has also been shown to stimulate collagen production, which will help reduce the appearance of fine lines.

    Glycolic acid also improves absorption of other ingredients, like retinol or vitamin C, enhancing their effect on the skin.

    Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycolic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Hydroxide Glyoxal, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PPG-1-PEG-9 Lauryl Glycol Ether, Phenoxyethanol.

    This serum contains high percentages of active ingredients. Patch test is essential. Apply abroad spectrum SPF while using the product and for a week thereafter. Do not use with other exfoliating treatments or retinoids. Can cause irritation, redness and peeling, especially around the eyes and mouth, in the early stages of treatment while skin builds tolerance. If persistent irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Do not use while pregnant. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool dry place at 5 - 25 C. Do not expose to high temperature. Protect from direct sunlight.

    Glycolic Acid rescued my skin!

    I’ve been struggling with acne scars for a long time & finally came across your glycolic acid serum. It’s been a perfect match since 2 weeks ago & am looking forward to the full results

    P.S. please also make complementary essential oils like tea tree, sandalwood etc cause I’m so in love with your brand!

    Love the texture!

    I started using this serum as my exfoliating step and I'm impressed! I can feel it tingling when I first put it on, but it doesn't feel harsh or stripping. I love the texture. Looking forward to seeing the results with more use!
