Anti Aging and Anti Acne! Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, creating firmer, youthful - looking skin, while also refining the pores for a clear, smooth, glowing complexion.
This cleanser contains alpha hydroxy acids (Glycolic at 10% and Lactic at 4%) to re-new and rejuvenate, along with beta hydroxy acid (Salicylic at the active level 2%) to cleanse and refine, with anti inflammatory agents to sooth and prevent irritation while removing excess oil and damaged skin, promoting new skin cell production and collagen formation for a healthy radiant glow. Formulated for normal to oily skin.
Glycolic and Lactic Acids are Alpha Hydroxy acids (fruit acids). Fruit acids are nontoxic naturally occurring substances that are found in a variety of fruits such as grapes, apples, sugar cane, and corn. Use of Organicals Glycolic products will improve oily and acne prone skin and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid, which is very different from the exfoliation of the alpha hydroxy acids. Instead of being small like the AHA's they are large and get deep into the pores to dissolve the build up that leads to problem skin and inflammatory acne.
