OUR FAVOURITE EXFOLIATING INGREDIENTS FOR THE FACE:

LACTIC ACID
This Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) has a triple benefit! You can rely on it to smooth the skin, stimulate cellular turnover and to renew, without leaving skin dehydrated. Find it along with other AHAs and exfoliating fruit enzymes in the Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel. 

RETINOL
Pure Vitamin A is the gold standard for brighter-looking skin and fewer visible signs of skin ageing. Find it in Overnight Retinol Repair and Age Reversal Eye Complex. This ingredient isn't pregnancy friendly and does have some contraindications, if you are unsure whether it is safe for you to use, please book a free virtual consult with one of our Dermal Therapists.

PHTYIC ACID
This skin-softening phytochemical found in Rice Bran, helps to safely remove dulling surface debris from skin. It's a key ingredient in both the best-selling Daily Microfoliant® and Daily Superfoliant™, where it’s pulverised into an ultra-fine powder, that’s gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin.

PRICKLY PEAR EXTRACT
Derived from a hearty Sonoran Desert succulent that’s able to thrive in adverse conditions, this non-acid blend helps accelerate the skin’s natural exfoliation process and reduce the appearance of skin ageing. Enjoy this in scrub form with MultiVitamin Thermafoliant®.

BAMBOO SPHERES
These are rich in minerals and are amazing at providing gentle exfoliation to reveal smooth and radiant skin. You can find these in the Hydro Masque Exfoliant, which delivers a nurturing exfoliation before the spheres melt away, allowing the concoction of hydrating actives to infuse the skin with moisture.

HIBISCUS FRUIT EXTRACT
This rich source of Vitamin C and Pyruvic Acid, has superior moisturising capabilities and won’t sting as it helps smooth and brighten skin. Find it leave-on exfoliant Daily Resurfacer, which also contains Salicylic Acid.

Happy exfoliating!
