Fruit Acids and Skin Tone
Incorporate acids. Alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate the top layers of skin to lift excess pigment. But some can be irritating. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fruit acids are acids derived from fruit, which are thought to stimulate collagen levels and improve tone and texture of the skin and may reduce wrinkles, age spots, scars, and hyperpigmentation and treat conditions relating to sensitive skin. It’s also a natural brightener and anti-bacterial making it ideal for acne-prone as well as hyperpigmentation-prone skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lactic acid is another good choice, especially for more sensitive skin. It’s a gently exfoliating brightener with humectant properties to pull moisture into the skin.
Both will aid the permeability of other transformative ingredients. Acids combined with cell regenerating vitamin A (retinoids) can be particularly effective.
Our Healing Face Cleanser contains papaya fruit acids and moringa to gently dissolve dead skin cells and feed skin nutrients needed to replenish skin.
