Alpha-bright Gel for Blemished Skin
A blend of mandelic acid and liquorice root extract in a light, 100% oil free, water based gel. Mandelic acid is regarded as the most effective alpha-hydroxy acid for alleviating blemished and hyper-pigmented skin. We have combined mandelic acid with liquorice root extract – a well regarded agent for inhibiting the excess melanin production that is the cause of blemishes and hyperpigmentation. Daily use will gradually develop a brighter and evenly toned complexion.
Alpha-bright Gel contains 3% Mandelic and is therefore well within EU regulations which recommend no more than 3.5% alpha hydroxy acid in a leave-on skin product. We have also ensured that that the gel is pH adjusted to provide the optimum balance between the acidity of the mandelic peel component and the mitigation of potential acid induced inflammation. Considering that blemished skin and hyper-pigmentation is typically a consequence of prolonged inflammation of the skin it is important to make sure that any products are pH optimised.
How to use: Apply to clean dry skin. Simply dispense a small amount onto the fingertips and massage gently into the skin paying particular attention to pigmented or blemished areas. As the gel is water based it will quickly absorb into the skin with out any residue. We would recommend that you use this gel at night time after cleansing the skin (we recommend our fragrance free foaming cleanser . But if you prefer to use this product during the day then ensure you apply a light sun screen after applying the gel. You can of course apply makeup after using the gel.
