Benefits of Glycolic Acid:
Glycolic Acid, made from sugar cane and grapes exfoliates, treats acne and is a main ingredient in chemical peels. The exfoliating aspect breaks up and removes dead skin that clogs pores and renders skin lifeless and dull. It repairs skin, reduces age spots and fine lines as well as skin blemishes and scars.
Benefits of Lactobionic Acid:
Lactobionic Acid is a PHA, a Polyhydroxy Acid derived from oxidized milk sugar and is gentler on the skin than AHA's. The larger molecular level of PHA's (poly meaning many) allows the acid to penetrate slower and is therefore less irritating, but is just as effective. Lactobionic Acid also has a water bonding effect, allowing for better hydration. Another key difference between AHA's and PHA's are the ability of PHA'S to trap oxidized particles and render them unable to damage skin. A bit of Neostrata Folklore: Lactobionic Acid, patented by NeoStrata, is used for organ transplants due to it's ability to prevent the tissue from oxidation damage that occurs during the transplant surgery.
Benefits of Vitamin E:
An antioxidant found in foods such as nuts and avocados, it halts the free radical damage from environmental effects and reduces sunburns. Highly nourishing, Vitamin E is heavy and may incur breakouts or allergic reactions. If your skin is Vitamin E intolerate, check out all the E FREE Neostrata products.
