Derived from bitter almonds, Mandelic acid has gained popularity as an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) variant that is gentle on the skin. It is larger in molecular weight as compared to Glycolic acid and this allows it to be gentler as it penetrates more slowly into the skin. As an exfoliant, Mandelic acid helps with acne and hyperpigmentation by removing layers of skin debris and working its magic of clearing the pores and increasing cell turnover. You can look forward to a brighter, clearer complexion with less obvious dark spots from the years of sun exposure with this gentle acid.
