Mario Badescu Skincare Raspberry Scrub – Product Description
The active ingredient in the product is glycolic acid, derived from raspberry. Glycolic acid is the best-known of a group of chemicals called fruit acids or alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA). It is derived from sugar cane, so it can be considered a natural product. Citric acid from oranges and other citrus fruits also fall under the same classification as glycolic acid.
Glycolic acid works as, an exfoliating agent because of its high acidity but easy solubility. When placed on the skin as gel, glycolic acid goes under the damaged epidermis and destroys the ‘glue’ which holds dead skin to the surface. The dead skin is “chemically burned off”, while the other ingredients carry the individual flakes away and a water rinse neutralizes the remaining acid resulting in a smoother skin surface. Glycolic acid has the ability to draw moisturizers into the exfoliated skin surface. It should be noted that the improper use of glycolic acid can be erosive to skin.
Product is both hypo allergenic and non-comedogenic. When using an exfoliator, or peel, the use of sunscreen is highly recommended, as the skin becomes photosensitive.
