Shasta AHA Refining Acid Wash 148ml
Glycolic: The most researched type of alpha hydroxy acid. It acts as an exfoliant to help shed dead skin to renew skin’s surface. It visibly softens signs of aging from sun damage.
Mandelic: This form of AHA is an especially large molecule, so it does not penetrate the skin deeply. Therefore, it exfoliates at a lower risk of irritation.
Lactic: A large molecule AHA that exfoliates on the surface of the skin by breaking down the material that holds dead skin together; it helps to brighten an uneven skin tone and is an effective alternative for sensitive skin types.
Tartaric: This AHA, which has antioxidant properties, comes from fermented grapes and is added to glycolic or lactic acid to strengthen their sloughing. It’s primary benefit is to regulate the formula’s pH.
Citric: This AHA is derived from citrus fruits and functions to keep other acids in a safe pH range. It eliminates irritating impurities on the skin by grabbing onto them so they cannot enter the skin.
Australian caviar lime extract: Fruit acid gently brightens and smooths skin.
Tamanu oil: A nut oil native to the south Pacific that helps skin heal and regenerate itself.
Rosehip oil: Chock full of vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids to hydrate skin and protect it from environmental damage.
Aloe vera: Offsets potential irritation from the acids by calming the skin and reducing redness.
Good to use in the morning, massaging in slow circular motions, taking the time for the product to work its magic. In the evening try the Holifrog Tashmoo Water Lily Nourishing Milky Wash to strengthen your skin’s barrier and soothe any inflammation. The less inflamed your skin is, the better it will react to exfoliating acids.
