Mandelic Acid

Mandelic Acid forms part of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) family and is a gentle chemical exfoliating ingredient used in many chemical peels or daily exfoliating tonics. In comparison with the other AHAs, Mandelic Acid is the largest molecule size, about twice the size of Glyolic Acid, which allows for slower penetration into the skin. The slow absorption of this ingredient makes it suitable for all skin types.
