The formula combines two gentle yet effective exfoliants lauded for sensitive skin tolerability: azelaic acid and PHA gluconolactone. Both ingredients work by exfoliating dead skin cells on the surface, resulting in a more even skin tone, clarity, and texture. While azelaic acid reduces the appearance of skin blemishes and decongests clogged pores. The duo joins forces with hexylresorcinol alongside resveratrol and licorice root extracts to steadily fade uneven skin tone, improving the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and other discolorations. Then comes vitamin C—the dermatological gold standard for free radical protection—delivered in potent botanical forms via Kakadu plum and Indian gooseberry.
KEY BENEFITS: Brightening, clarifying, lightening, mildly exfoliating
FYI: Skin purging may occur for some when using chemical exfoliants like those found in ÂN-DEW. Azelaic Acid + PHA Gluconolactone work by exfoliating dead skin cells and bringing the congestion to the surface, thus experiencing some skin purging. We recommend continuing use as consistency will improve texture and skin tone over time.
The dynamic ingredients at play include:
Azelaic Acid which is a naturally occurring compound famous for reducing skin sensitivity including redness, aids in diminishing blemishes and post-acne marks, gently exfoliates dead skin cells to improve overall texture, and delivers antioxidant benefits.
Hexylresorcinol inhibits tyrosinase and lowers melanin production resulting in skin lightening and brightening.
Polyhydroxy Acid Gluconolactone is a chemical exfoliant that accelerates cell turnover, improving overall skin texture and strength. It is chemically and functionally similar to AHAs, such as glycolic acid, but due to the molecular structure is less sensitizing.
Indian Gooseberry Extract is a rich source of Vitamin C that helps to brighten the complexion and improve skin tone and elasticity.
Resveratrol Extract is an antioxidant found in red grapes and works at a cellular level to protect the skin’s surface from damage caused by free-radicals in the environment. This results in anti-aging benefits that support the skin’s collagen and inhibit skin discolorations.
Licorice Root Extract is a plant extract that offers skin-soothing properties and improves the look of an uneven skin tone. One of its components, known as glabridin, is a potent antioxidant that aids in sensitive, reddened skin, and dark spot fading.
