Additional pH Advantage Products Information
The acidity (pH level) of healthy skin is usually in the range of pH 4.0. To be most effective and efficient, the pH Advantage Exfoliators Products are formulated to have a level of approximately pH 3.0, which allows them to provide the best results. Unlike cleansers, which are meant to just remove dirt particles and built-up material on the surface of the skin, exfoliators are also designed to help the dead and dying skin cells still attached to the outer layer of skin to gently detach themselves and be removed by washing. This provides a completely new, healthy and fresh surface of skin, one that can more readily accept and absorb subsequent skin care treatments. Exfoliations helps to make moisturizing, toning and other skin care products more effective.
The easy application method used by pH Advantage Glycolic Exfoliation Pads allows precise delivery of the glycolic acid solution to the skin. Buffered with willowherb Epilobium) extract, the glycolic acid is provided in a light concentration suitable for home use. Leave the solution on the skin for five minutes, to give it time to help “decouple” the bonds that keep old skin cells clinging to the surface. Once the application is rinsed away with water, the skin is left smooth, clear and clean. The treatment is gentle enough to be used with minimum irritation, although it should not be used more frequently than once a week. Since new skin cells are encouraged to be presented by exfoliation, sunscreen should be used during the day after an exfoliation session.
