This retexturizing peeling pad has a pH of 4.5, which is an optimal pH for creating a sub-acid protective barrier to protect our skin from environmental pollutants while exfoliating dead skin cells for an even and smooth texture. Lactic acid, a powerful AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) exfoliant, effectively sloughs off dead skin cells, resurfacing fresh, radiant skin underneath. Gluconolactone, a mild PHA (poly hydroxy acid), is similar to AHA, but more suitable for sensitive skin due to its larger molecular size. Betaine salicylate is a form of beta hydroxy acid (BHA), combining salicylic acid and betaine, a moisturizing compound derived from sugar beets to neutralize irritation. It is categorized as a mild exfoliant, acne treatment, and helps improve uneven skin tone and texture. Moisturizing ingredients, such as organic aloe vera in place of water, and sodium hyaluronate keep skin hydrated, while beta-glucan, a polysaccharide humectant, soothes and reduces the redness of sensitive skin. A touch of essential oil blends from energizing yuzu and orange provides uplifting and revitalizing aromatherapy.
