15% Glycolic Acid Gel 50ml
- How To Use
This oil-free Aloe Vera Gel with Glycolic Acid is very beneficial for normal to oily and blemished skin types as well as dry/damaged skin or hyperpigmentation. It effectively helps to fight bacteria and increases the rate of skin exfoliation, which can help to boost the skin’s production of collagen.
This gel contains moisture boosting Aloe Vera, exfoliating Glycolic Acid 15% and Lavender extract which together helps to increase skin cell turnover and ensure that pores are kept clear of debris. It is ideal for congested or oily skins, as well as skin which is showing the signs of ageing. Over time, skin texture is refined, pores appear smaller and fine lines and wrinkles are softened. It is ideal for older skins that are also spot prone.
After cleansing, apply a small amount of the gel to the face and neck using your fingertips. Allow the gel to be fully absorbed before applying your moisturiser.
When layering, if using a thin, water based product such as our hyaluronic acid serum, apply the thinner product first. When using anything oil based, apply after this treatment gel.
This product can not be used after an active ingredient such as acids, retinol or vitamin c. When using with our chemical exfoliators or night treatment, you would alternate between them every other evening.
As this is a strong acid it doesn't need to be used daily, we recommend using no more than once ever other day.

How Does it Work? Aloe Vera is one of the oldest medicinal plants known to mankind. It is believed to contain six antiseptic agents, moisturises skin, increases blood flow, naturally cleanses and penetrates deep into the skin tissue. Aloe Vera is a natural anti-inflammatory (contains plant steroids) and contains vitamins, enzymes, minerals and amino acids which encourage cell regeneration.
Lavender is naturally antibacterial and can help sooth skin that is red or inflamed.
Alpha-hydroxy acids perform at the base of the epidermis, dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells together. Because this increases cell turnover, skin becomes smoother, more elastic and more even in tone and texture.
At the same time Glycolic Acid can also stimulate your skin to produce more collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin and keeps it elastic and line free; when this starts to disintegrate, skin begins to sag and wrinkle.
The Glycolic Acid in this product has been partially neutralised, this means that the glycolic acid is released over a period of time and is less irritating than glycolic acid that hasn't been partially neutralised, giving you the same results without the side effects.
What is the difference between this and the night treatment? This gel is slightly more neutralised, this means that although it contains the same amount of acid it’s released a little slower and so isn’t as irritating. This is also a non oily, gel base where are the moisturiser contains more nourishing oils.
