Mandelic Acid, an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) derived from bitter almonds, is one of the most gentle acids out there and is appropriate for all skin tones and types, even sensitive skin. Soothing and hydrating botanical extracts (Green Tea and Agave) in this liquid form a lightweight membrane as a safeguard to further ensure the skin's comfort and wellbeing. Despite its tender nature, Mandelic Acid is a heavyweight among other skincare acids. With regular and directed use, skin will look clearer, more hydrated, smoother, more even-toned, and brighter.
Directions for use:
Start slowly, paying close attention to how the skin reacts. Use only once a week and slowly increase the frequency to two or three times a week. If you have sensitive skin, only once a week will be sufficient. Use before bedtime. After cleansing, apply a small amount to face (avoiding eyes and lips), neck, and décolletage with a cotton pad. Do not rinse off. Finish with a gentle moisturizer. May cause skin to tingle or flush slightly for a short time. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day.
As with any new skincare product, it's imperative to perform a patch test. Patch testing is a method of testing a new product to see if it will work for your skin. This test is often ignored, and can result in pretty severe acne or allergic reactions.
Choose a small, discreet, patch of skin on your body, such as behind an arm or behind an ear. Then apply a small amount of the product in question according to the product directions. In the following 24 hours watch for signs of a reaction such as abnormal redness or irritation. If an adverse reaction occurs discontinue use. Please note that adverse reactions are the exception and are not common.
Mandelic acid is derived from bitter almonds. If you have a nut allergy, please consult your doctor prior to use.
Check with your doctor before use if you are pregnant.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes and lips. If irritation occurs, discontinue use and rinse thoroughly with water. Keep out of reach of children. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) product and for a week afterwards.
