Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
- Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA): Alpha hydroxy acids, synthetic versions of acids derived from sugar-containing fruits, are exfoliants that remove the upper layer of skin and facilitate the growth of smooth, evenly pigmented new skin.
- Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA): Salicylic acid is a skin exfoliant, causing damaged skin cells to essentially become “unglued” – even ones that have built up inside the pore. This allows the dead skin cells to slough off and helps promote growth of new skin.
- Urea: Urea is a potent keratolytic emollient. It works to thin and loosen rough skin so it can be sloughed off. It also improves the skin’s moisture-binding capacity to soften the skin.
- Ceramides: Ceramides are lipids that essentially hold the surface cells of the skin’s protective barrier together, helping to retain moisture and restore and replenish the skin.
