The Search for a Fresh Face
Fresh, vitally glowing skin is one of the greatest keys to achieving a youthful healthy look - but often, the inherent attractiveness of our faces can be masked by the accumulation of dead skin. This only serves to build up the look of other factors, such as scarring, acne, wrinkles and other signs of ageing. At the same time, many of us are reluctant to resort to exfoliating products that may be harsh on skin. It’s increasingly clear that a soothing cream, that used a research-driven approach to gently tackle the accumulation of dead skin cells, would be welcomed by many.
Alpha & Beta - Your Next Skin Secrets!
One might not associate acids with positively influencing our skin, but increasing understanding is finding that naturally derived, plant based Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids can be used to gently yet effectively polish the skin, leaving a fresh, glowing look. Glycolic and Lactic Acids belong to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) class; the former is found in sugar cane juice, and is believed to be particularly potent due to its small molecules’ ability to penetrate deeply into the skin. Lactic Acid, which has similar effects, is derived from milk and dairy products and is now believed to have been the hidden factor behind legendary Egyptian queen Cleopatra’s milk baths and cream masks. They work in harmony to work with skin’s thick outer layer at a microscopic level, stimulating the skin’s natural regeneration.
Beta Hydroxy Acids, on the other hand, are considered to be milder - but that makes them no less powerful! These compounds, which include Salicylic Acid, are unique for their power to address the clogged nature of pores themselves, which makes them remarkably helpful in addressing blemishes such as blackheads and whiteheads. Using these Alpha and Betas in combination could provide a holistic, complete approach to the needs of built-up, congested complexions.

As with any new product, though, we suggest carefully reading ingredients and instructions, in case of personal allergens.
