5% Mandelic Serum is an alpha hydroxy acid serum that contains the chirally correct versions of both L-Mandelic acid and L-Lactic acid. L-Mandelic acid has a larger molecular weight than other 

alpha hydroxy acids slowing down epidermal penetration resulting in a more even exfoliation with 

less irritation. 

This water-based serum is recommended for skin prone to inflamed acne, noninflamed acne, fungal folliculitis, and hyperpigmentation. It is appropriate for all skin types when 8% Mandelic Serum 

cannot be tolerated during a skin sensitivity test. Always perform a skin sensitivity test with this 

serum before adding it to a client’s home care routine. 

Key ingredients include: 

  • 5% L-Mandelic Acid: Alpha hydroxy acid that has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti- fungal properties, improves the appearance of pigmentation
  • 4% L-Lactic Acid: Alpha hydroxy acid that is hydrating, exfoliating, and reduces pigmentation
  • Sodium Hyaluronate (L): Moisturizes, attracts and holds water in the skin
  • Sodium PCA: Potent hydrating and moisturizing humectant that is non-irritating
  • Niacinamide: Antioxidant that supports moisture retention and improves the appearance
    of skin tone and texture
