Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal, improving skin texture, diminishing the look of lines and wrinkles, and improving the appearance of dull, uneven skin tone. Physical exfoliants, such as scrubs, are often far too harsh to be used on our delicate facial skin.

Lactic acid is the considered gentler of the AHAs, best for those with sensitive skin or those new to using chemical exfoliants. It rejuvenates the skin by encouraging the shedding of old surface skin cells. This toner is formulated at 5% lactic acid with a bounty of skin goodies making up the rest of the toner to soothe and calm your skin.

Key Ingredients

+ Extracts of Manuka honey, helichrysum, and chamomile: anti-inflammatory, promote skin regeneration, soothe irritation
+ Cucumber hydrosol: refreshes and soothes skin
+ Blue Tansy oil: reduces redness, soothes irritation, full of antioxidants
+ Vitamins B3 & B5: strengthens skin barrier; evens skin tone, texture, and brightens; healing, soothing humectant
+ Allantoin: increases smoothness; promotes wound healing; soothing, anti-irritant; skin protectant

Those looking for a stronger exfoliation should consider the 5% glycolic acid toner.

Your facial toner will arrive in a convenient spray bottle.

The Ritual

After cleansing face, spritz cotton pad to saturate. Make it eco-friendly by using washable and reusable cotton rounds. Gently pat onto skin, avoiding mouth and eye areas. Do not rinse off. Use during evening skincare routine, as AHAs may increase sensitivity to sunlight. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use. Do not use on broken skin. Store in a cool, dry place. External use only.

Recommended use of 1-3 times per week. Any tingling sensation will subside after a few minutes. Always perform a patch test on your hand or arm when trying a new product, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Follow up with a potion, facial oil elixir, or moisturizer. Apply your favorite SPF the next morning.

Mindfulness

For any of our beeswax-based products [balms, salves, etc] offered, consistency may be altered by the weather: softer in warmer months + firmer in cooler months. During warmer seasons, keep product in a cool, dark area. During colder seasons, allow the warmth from your skin to soften the product.

Shipping to or throughout hot climates, particularly in summer months, may result in a liquified product. Please keep this in mind when ordering + ensure your order is shipped to an address where it will be collected in a timely manner + not left out in the sun or hot weather. If your beeswax product melts + liquifies, this will in no way harm or alter the efficacy of your product. Should you experience this, simply toss in the refrigerator for a few hours to bring it back to its original consistency.
