Exfoliation May Be the Secret to Glowing Skin, But What You First Need to Know

It can be the secret to skin that’s glowing — or skin that’s burning.

About the product

What Is It:


If you’re interested in getting into chemical exfoliation with AHA, this silky face cream made especially for dry skin may be the starter cream for you. Formulated with 61.15% coconut fruit water, this moisturizer features 3% gluconolactone, a polyhydroxy acid that is the milder, less irritating version of AHA. PHA is also a humectant, so it draws water into the skin and helps boost skin’s barrier function. Studies have even shown PHA to be safe for those with sensitive skin, including rosacea and atopic dermatitis. A boost of niacinamide (2%) helps brighten skin tone as the PHA helps increase your skin cell turnover for a more refined, even-toned, dewy complexion.


Our insight:


The cream has a silky feel and absorbs fairly quickly, leaving behind a satiny, non-sticky finish.


How to use:


Apply on face as the last step in your skincare routine, avoiding the eye area. Pat in to enhance absorption.

*Tip: Can also be used as a mask.
