Key Ingredients:

  • Salicylic Acid – Extracted from the bark of willow trees, this beta-hydroxy acid unclogs pores while removing excess sebum and dead skin cells.
  • Glycolic Acid – Derived from sugar cane, this alpha-hydroxy acid helps facilitate skin’s natural exfoliation while eliminating dead skin cell buildup to improve the appearance of the skin’s tone and texture.
  • Lactic Acid – Derived from milk, this alpha-hydroxy acid loosens and exfoliates dead skin cells to effectively promote cell turnover.
  • Pumice – Fragmented from naturally-occurring pumice-stone, this key ingredient provides mild, yet effective exfoliation of surface dead skin cells to refine texture and brighten skin.

    My dermatologist suggested this and I’m SO glad she did. I use a lot of different products from Skinceuticals and generally find them to be very effective. I started using the Lactic Acid cleanser about a year ago and it was great, but then I think my skin got used to it. This cleanser is amazing!!! It is exactly what my skin needed and I’m already seeing acne clearing and marks fading and just general healing going on. I never used the old formula that a lot of reviews reference so I can’t compare, but I love this. It doesn’t smell fragrant but it doesn’t smell bad. I think the smell is totally fine if it’s working like this!
