Introducing the Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water


Introducing gentle but effective exfoliating care for anyone, anytime.

What it is

Like it’s name, the Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water is an item formulated with 5% concentrate of Mandelic Acid, to gently exfoliate the skin for improved skin texture, skin tone, and an overall more healthy complexion.

Just as moisturizing the skin is key in a daily skincare routine, regular exfoliation plays a crucial role in the overall health and appearance of our skin. Getting rid of the unnecessary dead cells that weigh our skin down can promote faster skin cell regeneration for glowier skin, and can even promote the effectiveness of the skincare products we applying following.

Similar to how a primer will set the base for good makeup application, the Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water sets the base for better skin, and an even better skincare routine.

Gentle but effective

When we think acids in skincare, we’ll think of harsh products that cause redness and irritation to the skin. But, this isn’t always the case.

Generally, acid exfoliating peels get their power from glycolic acid or citric acid. These two acids have small particles which easily penetrate into the skin to quickly & deeply work within the dermis. For many, this is too harsh & irritating on the skin, making it an unavailable option for those with normal to sensitive skin types looking for an effective acid to incorporate into their routine.

Mandelic acid is equally as effective in giving the same benefits of the the two previously mentioned, but has larger particles, which only work on the exterior of the skin, and isn’t absorbed as quickly into the deeper parts of the skin, making it perfect for individuals with any skin type.

Mandelic Acid: the superhero behind the product

To go into depth on this skincare superhero, Mandelic Acid is a type of AHA that is not only effective in improving pigmentation and caring for UV damaged skin, but also providing treatment for acne and infections through its antibacterial properties.

It’s also highly effective in the removal of dead skin cells as it works to target and dissolve the corneosesmosome, the small building block that holds together each dead skin cell. This results in smoother skin, and promotes skin cell regeneration by increasing cell turnover rate for plumper skin, a brighter and more even skin tone, and an improved skin texture.

Fun fact: Mandelic acid is derived from almonds, as compared to the image of citrus fruits that arise when we think ‘acid’. Nuts, right?

A multifunctional must-have for any vanity

And while Mandelic acid is gentle on the skin, the skin prep water also includes the following for increased comfort:

  • Centella asiatica: helps regenerate damaged skin, and soothes irritation.
  • Panthenol (Vitamin B5): Functions to moisturize,fight & prevent inflammation, and even prevents itchiness in the skin.
  • Hyaluronic acid: A moisturizing agent naturally found in the skin, that also functions to keep the skin’s moisture levels at a healthy level. Found in between collagen, elastin and skin tissue, making its absence a cause of wrinkles and dryness. Maintains the skin’s moisture levels even after exfoliating.
  • Beta-glucan: Moisturizes, reduces redness and inflammation, and soothes the skin.
