10% AHA Blend (Lactic, Mandelic & Malic Acids)
Powerful alpha hydroxy acids, these chemical exfoliants have smaller-sized, water-soluble molecules that work on the surface to dissolve buildup and refine uneven texture for improved brightness and clarity.
2% BHA (Salicylic Acid)
Potent beta hydroxy acid, this oil-soluble chemical exfoliant penetrates pores to help decongest them from excess sebum and buildup that may cause blemishes and an enlarged appearance.
8% PHA (Gluconolactone)
Similar in benefit to AHAs but gentler on sensitive skin types due to its ability to simultaneously hydrate skin as it refines and brightens.
Derived from a green algae that can thrive in extreme environments, this oil-soluble active produces a bioactive complex of lipids and fatty acids that helps renew and hydrate cells to promote cell proliferation and can have anti-inflammatory benefits.

Understanding Chemical Exfoliants
AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) are chemical exfoliants that can offer significant benefits to the skin when combined in a single product. AHAs, are water-soluble and work on the surface to improve skin texture and tone, while oli-soluble BHAs work deeper within the skin to unclog pores and tackle acne-related concerns. By incorporating both AHAs and BHAs in one formula, you can achieve comprehensive exfoliation and address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. This combination can provide smoother skin, reduced breakouts, improved skin tone, and a brighter-looking complexion.
Diglucosyl Gallic Acid
This skin-brightening, naturally anti-inflammatory molecule is activated by your skin’s microbiome, partially transforming it into tri-hydroxybenzoic acid, a natural melanin synthesis inhibitor that can help to even-out and improve overall skin tone.
Wakame Bioferment Advanced
Unique seaweed-derived active found in cultured wakame cells. It can contribute to cell longevity by minimizing cellular damage within the mitochondria, which can help minimize the appearance of premature aging.
Soothing mineral that can help calm visible inflammation in skin, help protect against free radical damage, and is necessary for the enzymes that help to regulate cell turnover and rejuvenation.
Peach Kernel Oil & Jojoba Seed Oil
Cushioning ingredients that form a protective, nourishing buffer to moisturize skin and allow acids to do their job without causing excess irritation or irritability.
