5% Glycolic Acid
The natural pH level of the skin is 4.7, and it plays a vital role in helping to protect the surface and keep skin resilient in the face of detrimental environmental effects. The skin has a built-in protective film known as the acid mantle. Keeping the skin’s acidic pH at the right level is vital to maintaining balance of the delicate microbiome of the skin, creating conditions that discourage the growth of harmful bacteria and support good bacteria to flourish.
The most effective exfoliating products are known to have a pH between 3.2 to 3.9. This Renewal Care series is adjusted to pH of 3.5, placing it in the ideal range for highly effective exfoliation without causing any burning or damaging effects.
