8% L-Mandelic Serum


Face Reality Skincare

8% L-Mandelic Serum is an alpha hydroxy acid serum that contains the chirally correct versions of both l-mandelic acid and l-lactic acid. L-mandelic acid has a larger molecular weight than other alpha hydroxy acids slowing down epidermal penetration resulting in a more even exfoliation with less irritation. 

This water-based serum is recommended for skin prone to inflamed acne, noninflamed acne, fungal folliculitis, and hyperpigmentation. It is appropriate for all skin types and is the first choice to test for skin sensitivity when adding a serum to a client’s home care routine. It is also recommended for skin that needs a boost up from 5% L-Mandelic Serum
