Soft Touch AHA is a hyper-gentle, highly effective exfoliant that sloughs off dead skin cells to help reveal smoother, clearer skin.
HOW IT WORKS:
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are skincare powerhouses. They dissolve the intercellular “glue” between dead cells on the surface of your skin, revealing the smooth, bright skin underneath.
Many AHAs can also cause significant irritation and redness, especially to those with sensitive skin. Mandelic acid is the exception: it is a much larger molecule than glycolic acid, so it doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply and therefore causes significantly less irritation.
Mandelic acid is a truly magical AHA. Its powers include: - Increasing cell turnover - Fading hyperpigmentation - Stimulating collagen production - Fading fine lines and wrinkles - Regulating sebum (oil) production - Fighting acne with its unique antibacterial properties
Soft Touch AHA has 10% mandelic acid, along with skin-soothers like aloe, chamomile, and allantoin to give you bright, smooth skin with the least amount of irritation possible. Its light gel formula dries quickly and can be used under makeup and other skincare products.
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
Soft Touch AHA is suitable for a wide variety of skin types, but is especially suited to sensitive skin. To avoid over-exfoliating, it's best to use Soft Touch AHA once every 2-3 days until your skin adjusts, at which point it can be used daily. Like all AHAs, Soft Touch can be photosensitizing, so always use broad-spectrum sun protection when using this product.
