Our AHA Deodorant has 5 fabulous totally natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids, we like to call them our little Super-Hero's, they are Glycolic, Lactic, Malic, Tartaric & Citric Acid. These AHA's are derived from all natural sources; Bilberry, Orange, Lemon, Sugar Cane & Sugar Maple Extracts.
These AHA's are our active odour control ingredient, they slightly change the pH of the armpit to create an environment that the odour causing bacteria can't survive or thrive in. These little super-heroes are also saviours for those ingrown hairs + hyperpigmentation, as well as excellent at increasing skin hydration.
Glycolic acid reduces the build up of dead and damaged skin cells mixed with sebum, one of the root causes of ingrown hairs, by speedily shedding/exfoliating off the inflamed cells surrounding the ingrown hairs, it enables the hairs to reach the surface much easier. By preventing and removing skin cell buildup on a daily basis, this also prevents further ingrown hair formations.
Lactic acid also helps exfoliate the build up of dead skin cells, as well as keeping the skin moisturised and feeling less dry. It stimulates collagen renewal and can firm your skin, it also aids in the reduction of Hyperpigmentation (dark spots or age spots).
Malic Acid works its way into the lower layers of the skin, it is able to clear the pores and also rid the skin of dead skin cells. It also reduces, pigmentation and scarring along with helping calm and reduce irritation.
Tartaric Acid is an antioxidant, with the ability to protect your skin from the harmful ravages of free radicals, (just like super-hero's) such as those that can come from exposure to the sun’s rays. It also boost's the exfoliation ability of Glycolic and Lactic acid.
Citric Acid, is ideal for all skin types it Helps to unclog pores, targets the skin’s hydrating support matrix to reduce the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles, it helps to even skin tone, brighten, soften and smooth the skin.
