A superficial skin peel that is milder than other alpha hydroxy acids.
The molecular weight of mandelic acid is 152.1 daltons, which is larger than other alpha-hydroxy acids (glycolic acid is 76.0 daltons, for example).
This larger size allows mandelic acid to penetrate the skin more slowly, making it very gentle and suitable for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin types.
Apply once a day, ideally in the morning. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce resistance until skin develops tolerance. Avoid eye contact. If irritation persists, discontinue use and seek medical attention. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and in particular the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
