Garden of Wisdom Mandelic Acid 10% Serum (30 ml)
GoW Mandelic Acid 10% Serum : Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid which gently exfoliates dead skin cells from skin's surface. Because of its larger molecular size, Mandelic acid penetrates slowly into the dermal layer making it less irritating than other alpha hydroxyl acids such as glycolic and lactic acid. This makes Mandelic Acid ideal for all skin types including those with sensitive skin however sensitive skin types should use the product once a week gradually increasing usage until skin's tolerance increases.
