Features & Benefits+
As an alpha hydroxy acid, Mandelic acid works by breaking up the bond between skin cells, leading to an increased rate of cellular turnover. This is beneficial because it purges the skin of dead skin cells, which can lead to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne, among other conditions. Mandelic acid has also long been known to have antibacterial properties, which are especially beneficial in the treatment of acne and oily skin.
Mandelic acid is considered a great alternative to steroids and hydroquinone in the treatment of hyperpigmentation such as Melasma as it has none of the side effects found with those treatment types; however, for skin that can tolerate the presence of hydroquinone, the combination of hydroquinone and Mandelic acid resulted in even faster break up of Melasma.
