What is Minimalist® Glycolic + Tranexamic 11% Body Exfoliator?
8% Glycolic Acid (AHA with small molecular weight) loosens and sloughs away dead skin cells and provides clearer skin and even tone.
2% Salicylic Acid (a BHA) dissolves skin debris & sebum that clogs pores. The combination of Glycolic Acid & Salicylic Acid helps smoothen skin and reduce Keratosis Pilaris.
Boosted with Tranexamic Acid (3%) which is a derivative of the amino acid lysine. It reduces the activity of melanocyte tyrosinase thereby treating melasma, UV-induced hyperpigmentation, and other post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Butylresorcinol can strongly inhibit the activity of tyrosinase, resulting in a reduction of hyperpigmentation & age spots. Found to have 20 times more potent inhibitory activity than Kojic Acid in a clinical study.
All our ingredients are sourced from leading global suppliers. Our Glycolic Acid is sourced from Chemours Company, USA and Salicylic Acid comes from Merck, Germany.
