An active serum to renew the skin by producing a controlled and soft exfoliation with 2% of XS hyaluronic acid and 5% of PHA's. PHA's provide many skin care benefits, they are very gentle, and do not cause irritation, or have a negative effect on the deeper layers of the skin. The effect of PHA's is very similar to that of AHA's (alpha hydroxy acids or fruit acids like glycolic or lactic acid), however PHA's (polyhydroxy acids) provide the skin with far more benefits.
The combination of hydroxyl groups within this serum act as a strong humectant to keep the skin glowing and plumped. Their larger molecular size results in slower skin penetration and prevents the burning sensation that is often common with other exfoliating agents. PHA's when used alone don´t require a basic neutralizer after application, therefore it makes them easy to use, and extremely beneficial when applied daily, as part of an effective resurfacing skincare regime.
This serum is mostly suited to anyone who is looking for a controlled daily resurfacing effect that will not irritate the skin. Highly suitable for rough, aged, sun damaged / uneven toned skin (including age spots), or smokers' skin, and anyone suffering from scars.
This serum can be mixed in any proportion with other mixlab serums to create a personalized formulation with additional benefits.
It can be added as part, or in full (2 doses) to the hyaluronic mix-mask to create a personalized mask.
The serum can be retailed and used as an offer the shelf serum, applied topically to the skin alone or under a moisturizer.
