No matter what your skin goals are—from decongesting pores to smoothing texture, targeting blemishes and evening tone—exfoliation can usually be found at the center of the solution. But most times, an exfoliant’s efficiency is often confused with aggression, and its potency confused with pain. But it doesn’t have to be this way! In fact, there’s a solution that actually solves skincare challenges instead of creating more. The brand new Mandelic Acid + Superfood Unity Exfoliant is that solution. It’s a solution for all skin types, including all of the acids, with none of the irritation.
The Unity Exfoliant is a leave-on liquid treatment that unblocks pores, smooths skin texture, and reduces the appearance of dark spots while also supporting the skin’s barrier. Alcohol- and artificial fragrance-free, this formula contains 3% mandelic acid (AHA), 2% salicylic acid (BHA), and 1% gluconolactone (PHA). The AHA works to lift dull surface skin cells, the BHA penetrates the pores to remove buildup, and the PHA offers hydration and boosts cell turnover.
This “flexfoliant” can be used at varying times of the day by every skin type, depending on usage. The Unity Exfoliant revolutionizes the way we think about exfoliation by using a unique triple-acid complex that is gentle enough for daily use. Combined with ultra-hydrating ingredients like glucosamine and licorice root, the formula achieves smooth and soothed skin.
The Unity Exfoliant also contains Youth To The People’s signature Superfood blend, which is filled with vital nutrients and antioxidants to help the skin function optimally, maintain a healthy pH, reinforce the skin’s protective barrier, and help defend against free radical damage. The Unity Exfoliant was formulated to provide daily support for all skin types, especially sensitive, breakout-prone, and melanin-rich skin.
