Mandelic Acid

Mandelic is an alphahydroxy acid that dissolves the intercellular glue that binds dead skin cells to the surface and brightens dark pigmentation. This causes a mild sloughing or peeling action leaving behind a smother, softer skin. In addition Mandelic helps to clear pores by killing bacteria causing acne, at the same time stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the epidermis and smoothing out imperfections in darker complexions.
