Our exfoliating toner is formulated with glycolic acid (8.5%), salicylic acid (1%) and lactic acid (0.5%) to clarify, brighten and even out the complexion. This potent trifecta of acids expedites cell turnover and reveals fresh new skin, thus minimising the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that dissolves the bonds between dead skin cells to encourage shedding, so new cells can generate, thus revealing a clearer, brighter, smoother complexion.
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates pores and encourages cell renewal to help soften the appearance of fine lines and fade discolouration such as hyperpigmentation and age spots.
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid, which means that it is oil soluble and can penetrate deeper into the pores to dissolve surface oils and other impurities that would otherwise cause blockages that can lead to breakouts. Clean pores are tighter and less visible, so skin texture appears smooth and refined.
Sweeps away any remaining traces of surface debris, so skin is perfectly prepped to absorb your favourite serum and moisturiser.
Our toners are formulated without alcohol or other harsh chemicals, so they won’t sting and are less likely to irritate sensitive skin.
