SR-Skincare Phytic Acid Exfoliating Serum
Phytic Acid is a natural alpha-hydroxy acid derived from seeds, grains, and nuts. As a member of the same group of acids as glycolic acid. lactic acid, and mandelic acid, it provides the same exfoliating action. However phytic acid is significantly milder than its cousins and therefore less prone to trigger inflammation (erythma) so may be well tolerated by those with sensitive skin. But this is not a product just for those with sensitive skin – it will provide it’s benefits to all skin types.
As an added bonus, phytic acid possesses pronounced anti-oxidant properties and as such has true anti-ageing benefits. The most significant cause of extrinsic skin ageing is the action of free radicals generated by the sun and from pollution and the elimination of free radicals by anti-oxidants will help protect the skin from undue premature ageing.
