TEGO® RenewHA Mandelic
INCI: Mandelic Acid (proposed)Product Categories: Active, Exfoliant
TEGO® RenewHA Mandelic is an aromatic alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). Because of its larger molecular structure relative to other AHAs like glycolic acid, mandelic acid is known to have slower penetration into the skin, which in part moderates its irritation potential to the skin. By implication, the speed of action from a mandelic acid application may be slower or more gradual than some other AHA acids, and its use may be more appropriate for sensitive skin applications.
Mandelic acid has been found to be useful to improve various skin conditions including UV-driven lentigines, darkening of skin seen with melasma, inflammatory acne, wrinkles, and fine lines.
Skin exfoliation is a well-understood approach to achieve more radiant, healthy-looking skin. Evonik’s next-generation alpha hydroxy acid (AHAs) and derivative aldobionic acids (ABAs) offer consumers a choice of effective skin renewal that is nonetheless sensitive to the skin.
