This synergistic blend of glycolic, salicylic and lactic blended alpha-beta acids with phospholipids clarifies, brightens and softens skin by gently unclogging pores and exfoliating dead skin cells. Glycolic acid sloughs-off skin’s superficial dead skin cells; salicylic acid dislodges the sebum by penetrating deeply into pores. Lactic acid holds hydration, promotes collagen growth and evens out skin tone. 100% biodegradable cleansing agents and phospholipids help maintain proper pH balance for cleaner, clearer and softer appearance. Our gentle, blended ingredient combinations are selected from only the mildest, organic detergents and are commonly found in baby shampoos due to their safety. Here’s the scientific part: we’ve designed our formula to ensure that the skin’s natural lipid barrier function is untouched and the acid mantle undisturbed by adding additional phospholipids, which mimic the skin’s natural ceramide balance while buffering it to maintain the skin’s original pH balance. We recommend mixing about a quarter size of the formula with water and lathering onto facial skin for about 20 to 30 seconds (while taking care to avoid the eyes).
