WHY SHOULD IT BE USED IN THE PM ONLY?
As this product contains an exfoliating acid and retinol, it may increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day.
CAN I LAYER THIS WITH OTHER INGREDIENTS?
Yes it can be used alongside other AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid or Apple Cider Vinegar), BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acid, C-50 Blemish Treatment) , PHA Toner, Vitamin C and Retinol products. As it is a targeted treatment, avoid using those ingredients on the same area. Just be aware that this formula contains Retinol, so you may need to dial down your current Retinol usage if you are using or allow time to build up a tolerance for the extra level of Retinol that is in Mandelic Acid Treament.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MANDELIC ACID AND TRANEXAMIC ACID?
The way these ingredients work is very different, Mandelic Acid is an exfoliating acid so works by loosening the bonds between dead skin cells, thus helping with cell turnover. Tranexamic Acid works directly with the pathway which inhibits melanin. You can use both products for UV induced damage and post inflammatory masks. However, since Mandelic Acid is a targeted treatment it may best to opt for this on smaller, more targeted areas of concern.
WHAT'S THE % OF MANDELIC ACID?
This product contains 10% Mandelic Acid
WHAT'S THE % OF RETINOL IN THIS PRODUCT?
This product contains 0.1% Retinol
WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?
PH LEVEL : 4.5 - 5.3
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Products using Retinol can take up to six weeks to show results. This is how long it takes for your skin cells to turnover. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don\'t overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.
IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?
