The New Generation of AHAs
A NATURAL APROACH TO SKIN EXFOLIATION
THESE ‘FLOWER ACIDS’ ARE MORE THAN ACIDS. THEY ARE A HIGHLY COMPLEX PURE EXTRACT OF THE HIBISCUS FLOWER COMPRISING A WIDE VARIETY OF ACIDS AS WELL AS POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANTS.
The result is a multi-functional ingredient that gently promotes exfoliation while nourishing the skin with protective antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties to strengthen the skin’s support matrix and firm the skin.
Ironically this has been somewhat problematic in convincing clients of its efficacy. The lack of a burning sensation leads some to assume that the product is ‘not working’ as it should. But that is a misconception. The pyruvic acid being a second generation acid exhibits greater keratolytic properties similar to the properties found in salicylic acid. This acid dissolves proteins responsible for cell adhesion due to its higher keratolytic effects more effectively than lactic acid. Moreover, as these acids are formulated into a seaweed polysaccharide base extracted from Laminaria and Fucus algae, the non-irritating benefits are enhanced.
