Glycolic Acid 30% - The holy grail of exfoliation, glycolic acid's small
molecules go deep beneath your skin's surface and break down bonds between
dead skin cells. Glycolic acid reveals fresh, glowing skin that's brighter,
smoother and fresher. Glycolic acid can also accelerate skin cell
rejuvenation and can also allow for deeper penetration of other skin care
ingredients. Naturally occurring in sugar cane and is the most efficient of
all the Alpha Hydroxy Acids.
Mandelic acid 6% - A alpha hydroxy acid derived from bitter almonds with
clinically proven benefits to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone. It

Arbutin 1% - Generally good for all skin types to help lighten dark spots,
lessen appearance of acne scars and promote an even skin tone. Arbutin is an
ingredient that is obtained from the bearberry plant where it is extracted
from the leaves, although it may also be produced synthetically. It is also
found in wheat, in the leaves of blueberry and cranberry, as well as in the
skin of pear. Similar to hydroquinone and other skin whitening agents,
arbutin works by inhibiting the function and activity of tyrosinase, an
oxidizing enzyme that is responsible for the production of melanin in the
body. It is used to reduce pigmentation in skincare products and has been
shown to be effective in the treatment of pigmented conditions such as
melasma and age spots.
