Exfoliation shouldn't be aggressive! Approach occasional exfoliation with a gentle formulation which features fermented fruit enzymes, fruit & lactic acids, complemented by hydrating & soothing ingredients. It's a non-abrasive, leave on treatment which works overnight to support the skin’s own natural exfoliation process by breaking down the proteins in excess surface skin cells (mature cells, not dead cells!) - resurfacing & moisturising the skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth and healthy. The milky serum format helps to buffer the exfoliating effect of the enzymes and acids, offering a more gentle experience (tingling isn't necessary for exfoliation!). Ideal for those who prefer to avoid stronger AHA products.

Skin type:  all skin types

Skin goal:   smooth skin, hydration

Key ingredients:  pineapple & papaya enzymes, lactic / fruit acids, acerola cherry ferment

Fragrance free (fruit extracts do not provide any fragrance)

Presentation: Recyclable 30ml aluminium bottle with twist and lock pump.

Papaya & pineapple enzymes: improve skin texture and reduce clogged pores through gentle exfoliation, in a fermented format to improve bioavailability

Acerola cherry ferment: offers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties

Multi fruit acid complex & lactic acid: work to brighten, hydrate and smooth skin

Panthenol and allantoin: to hydrate, moisturise and soothe the skin

Formulated without added fragrance (the fruit extracts provide no fruit scent) or essential oils & alcohol. Suitable for all skin types (patch test for sensitive skin). 

pH: 3.5-4.0

Use once or twice a week (less frequently for sensitive skin) at night as a leave-on treatment. After cleansing (and applying watery products like skin quenching essence and barrier support serum if used), apply no more than a pump to the face, avoiding the eye area. Follow up with moisturiser if needed (can also be applied over moisturiser, or used as a rinse off mask for sensitive skin). Complete your daytime routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF30 to protect your skin. 

Patch test before first use. Do not use on irritated/compromised skin, or  with any other forms of exfoliation (eg. other chemical exfoliants, physical exfoliants / or washcloths).

This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) which may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the risk of sunburn. Be sun smart: always use sunscreen during the daytime, protective clothing and limit sun exposure.

Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. As with all products, discontinue use if irritation occurs.

Use before expiry date.
