Mandelic Acid & Rice Bran Gentle Exfoliating SerumSelfless By Hyram
Selfless By Hyram | Mandelic Acid & Rice Bran Gentle Exfoliating Serum | 30ml
An innovative, multifunctional chemical exfoliant that exfoliates the skin effectively but gently, delivering results without irritation.
The formula combines Mandelic Acid and PHA with Rice Bran (Phytic Acid) and Salicylic Acid to gently exfoliate the skin, helping to even skin texture and promote an overall smoother appearance, helping skin to appear brighter, and helping to prevent clogging of the pores.
In more detail it contains 3% Mandelic Acid which gently exfoliates the skin and smooths skin surface, 2.5% Gluconolactone (a PHA) which gently exfoliates and aids skin moisture, 0.5% Phytic Acid (Rice Bran) which gently exfoliates and helps oil-control, and 0.5% Salicylic Acid which helps to unclog pores.
The Rice Bran is sustainably sourced from the food industry. After rice has been 'polished', natural Phytic Acid is extracted, rather than being discarded, and used as an effective, gentle chemical exfoliator.
Key Active Ingredients
+3% Mandelic acid - An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that has a larger molecular size than glycolic acid therefore doesn’t penetrate the skin as much and as such has much less potential to cause irritation, making it more user friendly for even sensitive skin, supported synergistically by…
+0.5% Phytic acid - Derived from rice bran, a rich source of phytic acid which acts as a gentle chemical exfoliant as well as being a powerful antioxidant
+2.5% Gluconolactone - A naturally derived polyhydroxy acid (PHA), that provides super mild exfoliation due to its large size (like mandelic acid). It has the ability to support skin barrier protection against other irritants as well as acting as a humectant and holding onto water in the skin, thus reducing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
+0.5% Salicylic Acid - This is an encapsulated form of salicylic acid, with in vivo studies showing that it has less irritation on the skin versus the potential standard salicylic acid without compromising on efficacy i.e. exfoliating the oil layer of the skin and unclogging pores
+2.928% Annona Cherimola fruit extract - This is a great ingredient for sensitive skin. It will help to counteract the drying or irritant potential of using chemical exfoliants, making this accessible to users with sensitive skin. At these inclusion levels, in-vivo studies showed that users who have a compromised skin barrier experienced significantly less skin discomfort
+10% Propanediol - Supports additional moisturization and reduced TEWL
Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
