Glycolic Face Wash
This product is currently sold out.
What is glycolic acid and why use it on your skin? It is a natural-occurring exfoliant derived from sugar that helps exfoliate dead surface skin cells and support natural cellular turnover. It is considered to be one of the safest cosmetic options among alpha hydroxy acids. Our skin is assaulted daily with dust, bacteria and other pollutants. Washing your face daily will help remove these impurities, revitalize your skin, ward off potential blemishes and allow other beneficial applications to penetrate and absorb into skin efficiently. This formulation contains 3% Glycolic Acid to provide a gentle but effective cleanse. Glycolic acid brings fresh new skin to the surface as it safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells, a process which helps correct discoloration caused by sun spots or aging. I love glycolic acid but have recently only been able to find it in pads or a mask - like the pumpkin mask we had this fall! While awesome, I was hoping for a gentler, more approachable way to get my daily dose and this is it! Hope you love it as much as I do!
