Precise skin purification, tailored to collaborate with retinoids.
PURPOSE: GENTLE CLEANSING AND RESURFACING FOR A HEALTHY, YOUTHFUL GLOW.
5% plant-based alpha hydroxy glycolic acid
2% plant-based alpha hydroxy lactic acid
This exfoliating cleanser is tailored to collaborate with the retinoids in our Enzyme-Active Retinol™ Night Serum. Unlike physical scrubs that essentially scratch your face in irregular patterns, the two Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) used in this cleanser (glycolic acid and lactic acid) are proven by dermatologists to:
– Gently and precisely exfoliate just dead skin cells
– Return the soft, glow of healthy skin
– Multiply the skin-smoothing effects of Enzyme-Active Retinol
– Increase dermal thickness and thus, ironically the skin's ability to retain moisture
Ingredients listed in product image. This cleanser can be paired safely with beta hydroxy acid cleansers like salicylic.
Tip: Use as leave-on mask for extraordinary chemical purification.
"I suffer from dry skin and eczema, so frankly, I’m always a bit hesitant to try new cleansers—so many are packed with ingredients that strip my face of its moisture! When I saw “aloe” in the name of Protocol’s cleanser, I knew I should give it a go. Aloe has never done me wrong and has been a true savior to my skin. With this cleanser, I feel confident that all the icky stuff I’ve absorbed throughout the day will be washed away without any of my moisture going down the drain with it."
