Skincare Acids: Pretty Much Everything Your Brain Can Handle About AHA, BHA, & Vitamin C

Now that you’ve got your hydration down and your skin barrier healthy, you’re ready for that next level of glow: skincare acids.

About the product

What Is It:

A gentle chemical peel? It’s not impossible when Swanicoco’s on your side! We’ve got a dynamic duo here to safely peel and reveal!
Big fan of Swanicoco’s AHA creams? We’d like to introduce you to this next generation upgrade! The 10% acid hasn’t changed, but to get maximum effectiveness with less irritation risk, they’ve taken a combination of 5% concentration AHA and combined it with 5% PHA to gently reveal your best skin! What’s the difference between the two? AHA’s smaller molecular size penetrates the skin deeply to loosen and dissolve dead skin flakes, while PHA’s larger molecules stick closer to the surface and penetrate slowly, dramatically lessening the potential for irritation. Together they work to safely, gently, yet thoroughly exfoliate your skin as you sleep!
Why has Swanicoco reformulated their peeling creams to contain PHAs? In addition to a gentler exfoliation, PHAs have been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. They’re also a humectant, meaning they can help your skin retain precious moisture! With continued use, your skin will be brighter, smoother, softer, and totally refined.
So what else is in this transformative bottle? Along with the AHA and PHA is a whole host of skin beneficial eco-certified botanical extracts, skin-brightening niacinamide, and super plumping hyaluronic acid! Moral of the story: Swanicoco A-PHA Skin Purifying Peeling Cream is our exfoliating dream!

Our insight:

Although this cream is exceedingly gentle, it’s still effective enough to soften rough areas of the body like the heels, elbows, and knees!

How to use:

Use as the last step of your nighttime skincare routine. Take a moderate amount and evenly spread all over the face, gently tapping to promote absorption.

Brand info:

Beauty brands that claim to be nature-based are a dime a dozen in South Korea, but Swanicoco takes that claim seriously. With the commitment to ensuring that each Swanicoco product consists of 90% to 100% natural ingredients, Swanicoco has risen to the top of Rankey.com’s list of natural cosmetics in Korea. And it’s no wonder. Beloved for their standout products like the Bitamin C line, the Centella Asiatica Salve (an editor favorite), and PHA 10% Coco Soft Peeling Cream, Swanicoco is on a mission to disprove the notion that natural ingredients are less effective. Swanicoco harnesses Korea’s high-tech biotechnology to provide products with not just time-honored botanical ingredients but those that are science-based, ranging from epidermal growth factors to snail mucin to fermented ingredients. Originally founded in 2000 by Seong Chunseon as a way to treat her family’s sensitive skin, Swanicoco soon expanded to a business after Seong started getting rave reviews of her naturally fermented soaps from her neighbors. Today, Swanicoco boasts a collection of over 150 products, ranging from skincare and color cosmetics to hair and body care and, of course, Seong’s fermented soaps (now offered in nine varieties). There are 28 Swanicoco retail locations throughout Korea as well as a robust online presence. A favorite of insiders in the beauty community, Swanicoco continues to operate in the spirit of its founder, making each product as if it were for their own family.
