Habiscus Lactic Exfoliant
Skin Type: ALL SKIN TYPES
Gentle Exfoliator is a dual manual and acid-based scrub that loosens and dissolves devitalized cells exposing a more youthful appearance. Mild Flower Acids improve the barrier function and hydration of the skin resulting in smoothing, improved clarity and uniformity of tone. At the dermal level AHA favors an increase of collagens and glycosaminoglycans leading to the softening of fine lines. Jojoba encapsulated microspheres exfoliate with a DNA fortifying blend of botanical extracts that supports the skin’s ability to renew and resist environmental aggressors. Skin will feel silky smooth and appear more radiant with each application.

- Flower Acids (Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract) – A blend of organic and pyruvic acids that are nonirritating to the skin. Flower acids gently activate cellular turnover improving hydration while contributing to better nourishment of the upper layers of epidermis. Pyruvic acid stimulates collagen and mucopolysaccharides synthesis. These properties (improvement of keratinization, the barrier function of the skin and hydration) translate into a smoothing of the skin surface improving clarity and uniformity of tone.
- Jojoba encapsulated Microspheres - Tiny, spherically shaped beads consisting of hydrogenated natural jojoba oil offer effective, gentle exfoliation. Highly effective exfoliation without the abrasiveness of other natural or synthetic exfoliants, provides elegant emolliency, non-occlusive & non-commedogenic, very mild and suitable for sensitive skin.
