What Exactly is Mandelic Acid?

Posted by tucker ashley on Sep 21st 2015

Sometimes skin care can feel overwhelming; there’s so many different products, and each one has a wealth of ingredients you’ve never heard of. Mandelic acid, however, should be one of those ingredients you always keep in your search for products. An alpha hydroxy acid, mandelic acid is known for the large amounts of benefits it can have when applied to your skin. In non-scientific terms, mandelic acid serves to speed up the process of skin cell turnover, which means that dead skin is more quickly replaced by the healthy and glowing skin underneath. At the same time, mandelic acid reduces fine lines and wrinkles to leave your skin with a smoother appearance, while also proving to be beneficial for acne sufferers. The science behind it is simple: mandelic acid is an ingredient used in a variety of products suited for all skin types, especially those that are oily, sensitive, and blemish-prone. It is a rapid treatment that targets any and all skin flaws, and much like hyaluronic acid, mandelic acid is well-known for its’ anti-aging benefits. Mandelic acid can be found in a plethora of different skin care products, and has become a staple of many treatments. Because of the variety of proven positive effects mandelic acid has, Tucker Ashley has taken advantage of its’ usage. Our Mandelic Botanical Cleansing Gel is a blend of goldenseal, hops, green tea and pomegranate that tones and hydrates any skin type. No matter what your type, you deserve to be able to cherish the skin you’re in.
