Reintroducing the Kombucha Power Exfoliant

05 Sep 2022

Whether you’re a fan of Youth To The People’s Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner, haven’t tried it, or tried it but it wasn’t for you, you’re going to want to pay attention to this: 

It’s gone under a little revamp, and now the formula is back with your feedback and skin goals in mind, tweaked for optimal user experience. Brighter-looking skin and smoother-feeling texture—that’s what you get with the newly reformulated Kombucha + 10% AHA Power Exfoliant. Now let’s dive into the benefits and how YTTP made it happen.

“Long story short, we took the original formulation of 8% lactic acid and reduced it by 1%, so it now includes a ratio of 7% lactic acid and 3% glycolic acid,” explains Jacob Tomás del Rosario, YTTP’s Director of Field Sales + Education. “We did this and also optimized some of the humectants in the formula because we ultimately wanted to improve the overall user experience, mitigate any tackiness, and make the consistency of the formula even smoother and more satisfying to use.”

In addition to the lactic and glycolic acids in the original, YTTP’s reformulated leave-on liquid Power Exfoliant still contains an exfoliating black tea ferment filtrate, as well as an amino acid, arginine, and all-star hydrators like betaine.

Together, it’s a non-sticky, fragrance-free, potent liquid peel that’s boosted with hydrators and antioxidants from black tea ferment filtrate that helps skin look more even-toned and improves the look of dark spots with continued use.

What are the benefits of the Kombucha + 10% AHA Power Exfoliant?

“The reformulated Power Exfoliant imparts the same radiance-boosting and skin-smoothing benefits with an even better experience,” says del Rosario. “It’s fragrance-free, formulated with a filtrate of kombucha, known to be rich in antioxidants, and helps to smooth and polish the appearance and feel of the surface of the skin.” Whether you’re looking to achieve brighter-looking skin, a more even-looking skin tone, or softer-feeling texture, the Kombucha Power Exfoliant does it all and then some.

How to use the Kombucha Power Exfoliant + who it’s for

As far as usage is concerned, Rosario recommends incorporating Power Exfoliant into your night routine once a week to acclimate, then work up to 2-3 nights per week.

“Power Exfoliant is great for anyone who’s looking to add an exfoliation treatment step to their routine a few times a week,” he says. “It is suitable for all skin types, and helps reveal a more even-looking skin tone as well visibly bright, dewy, and luminous skin.”

Superfood Cleanser and Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask are Rosario’s favorite products to pair with Power Exfoliant.

“This product helps reveal visibly smoother, brighter, and more luminous skin,” says Rosario. “The benefits get even better with time and continued use.”. Whenever you are using a product with AHAs, don’t forget to apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or above before sun exposure.
