Gotu Kola & Cypress Pore refining Cleanser
Removing surface impurities such as pollutants, make-up, bacteria and excess oil as well as exfoliating the skin to remove dead surface cells without disturbing the delicate moisture and oil balance is one of the keys to beautiful skin. The use of harsh soaps, synthetic-based detergents, and mineral-oil based milky cleansers or cleansers with sensitizing synthetic ingredients can throw the skin off balance causing increased production of oil, inflammation and dehydration. The natural mixed fruit acid complex is the result of a special extraction process developed to produce a high quality form of AHA that is less irritating than comparable products. Alpha and beta-hydroxy acids are natural substances derived from fruits, sugar and other plants. The sugar cane extract contains natural glycolic acid. The fruit acids contain the important alpha hydroxy acids and the green tea extract acts as a buffer and provides soothing anti irritant benefits to the skin. The complex has been proven to be effective in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and fine lines. They work by loosening the glue-like bonds in the upper dermis thereby gently exfoliating the dead, dull skin cells. As a person ages the natural sloughing process of these dead cells slows. AHA's encourage the sloughing and new cell renewal to be more like that of younger skin. The result is fresher, smoother, more even skin tone. These natural acids don't irritate, cause photosensitivity or redness like other anti-aging ingredients such as Retin-A. Our natural acidic fruit complex has a significant retexturization action on the skin accompanied by a measurable increase in cell renewal. The recent addition of galactoarabinan provides outstanding moisture and reduces transepidermal water loss. Galactoarabinan is a natural polysaccharide or sugar extracted from already harvested North American larch trees and enhances AHA exfoliation by up to 20%, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
