- WHAT AM I
A tone-refining, re-texturizing serum that gently exfoliates and treats stubborn pigmentation, persistent breakouts, visible fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin oxygenation to quickly resuscitate a devitalised complexion.
- WHY PICK ME
Mandelic Acid, a water-soluble alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from bitter almonds, is a proven versatile ingredient with natural micro-exfoliating, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that combine to offer wondrous glow-giving, skin-clearing and anti-aging benefits all at once. This non-abrasive treatment works by dissolving the glue-like bond between impacted cells to speed up its turnover, stimulating as well as strengthening collagen while resurfacing the skin until completely replaced by a new, unblemished layer.
With a bigger molecular structure and therefore slower penetration rate, Mandelic Acid is also less likely to cause irritation, redness or flakiness that some other AHAs might trigger in sensitive, acneic skin. In addition, our formula also incorporated Panthenol, a pro-vitamin B5 known for its repairing, soothing and moisturising effects, to promote wound healing through increased fibroblast proliferation and help with skin barrier restoration while adding elasticity as well as hydration.
Further supported by SEPITONIC™, an active multimineral anti-glycation, chrono-energizing complex, that acts as an oxidation stress shield by blocking free radical and functions to safeguard the dermis from glycation process; at the same time boosting cellular respiration by increasing the oxygen immediately available to the skin in order to generate a brighter, smoother and firmer complexion.

Looking to even out a discoloured skin tone and bumpy textures while softening existing fine lines and preventing further creasing of deep-set wrinkles for a more youthful glow.

Wanting a mild exfoliant that is less harsh than traditional AHAs to eradicate dark marks left behind by inflammatory acne as well as to reduce the frequency and severity of future flare-ups and breakouts.
Good to Know
This mandelic acid serum contains alpha hydroxy acid that can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn, which is why it would serve more appropriate as part of your night time routine. It is recommended to start slow (about once a week) and gradually build up tolerance before increasing the usage, and to limit sun exposure when using this product for at least one week after initial use.
The first few uses may also cause slight facial redness, mild burning/warming or occasional stinging/tingling sensation on or around the site of application, but these should diminish after several uses as directed. Avoid mixing mandelic acid with products containing retinol, benzoyl peroxide and various chemical or physical exfoliants at the same time to lessen the risk of developing an irritation.
Do not use it on peeling, compromised or broken skin. Avoid contact with eyes. Always do a patch test first. If irritation occurs during use, especially after prolonged or repeated use, stop use immediately and consult a doctor. Store in a cool place.
