Product description

Product code: 47281533

Mandelic Acid is water-soluble alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that offers superficial exfoliation.

It does so by targeting the outermost layer of the skin and promoting its shedding to enhance overall radiance. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation for visible clarity. The molecular weight of Mandelic Acid is 152.1 daltons which is larger than other alpha hydroxy acids, such as Glycolic Acid (Glycolic Acid is 76.0 daltons).

This larger size gives Mandelic Acid a lower penetration rate, making it a great option for first-time users.
