An uneven complexion can be due to the accumulation of dead skin cells that are stuck on the surface of the skin.
Pores are present everywhere on our skin and help to evacuate sebum and sweat. These pores are sometimes enlarged on the T-zone.
Our highly concentrated glycolic acid serum helps tighten pores and remove dead skin for smoother skin and a more even complexion. Glycolic acid is a potent treatment to effectively fight against blackheads. (Read the precautions before use)
The 4 key active ingredients of glycolic acid
Glycolic acid (10%):
Glycolic acid is known for its exfoliating power on the upper layers of the skin and its astringent (i.e. pore tightening) properties. A powerful pore-cleansing agent, this acid helps reduce the presence of blackheads, caused by the accumulation of sebum in the pores.
The glycolic acid peel is the best known peel of the superficial layer of the skin. Dead cells bound together are found on the surface of the epidermis. Glycolic acid acts by breaking these bonds and makes it possible to eliminate them. Thus, the skin is left with a rejuvenated, unified and toned upper layer.
In addition to its peeling effect, glycolic acid is also moisturizing due to its stimulating effect on cell renewal and hyaluronic acid synthesis.
Mastic pistachio extract (2%):
The mastic pistachio tree, still known as the mastic tree, grows on poor, arid and rocky soils in the Mediterranean region. Its extract tightens pores, reduces shine and has an anti-comedogenic action, in other words, it reduces the appearance of blackheads.
Derived from candeia bark, alpha bisabolol is known for its anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory effects. As glycolic acid can be irritating, it is important to provide soothing active ingredients in order to avoid inflammation of the skin.
Chamomile extract (2%):
Chamomile is known for its soothing and repairing virtues thanks to its composition of matricin and bisabolol. It has anti-inflammatory properties to inhibit the appearance of inflammation. In the same lineage as alpha bisabolol, chamomile extract is used as an anti-irritant to soothe the effect of glycolic acid.
