Gold Standard Exfoliation Treatment
1 fl. oz / 30mL
Meet Gold Standard — the most potent chemical exfoliator of our acid line. With 30% Glycolic Acid and 5% Tranexamic Acid, Gold Standard sloughs off dead cells for a smoother, brighter complexion. Perfect for seasoned exfoliators looking to level up their routine.
This acid booster was designed to give you the freedom to integrate as you need it into your routine. Dilute with your hydrating serum or moisturizer for a nightly treatment or use once a week as a wash-off mask. Gold Standard is at your service!
Gold Standrd is tinted yellow using a natural colorant derived from safflower. To minimize irriation, this product is completely fragrance and essential oils free.
The Gold Standard pairs the most powerful AHA glycolic acid with hyperpigmentation-fighting superstar tranexamic acid to effectively smooth and brighten dull skin.
30% Glycolic Acid: Glycolic acid is the smallest molecule of the AHAs (chemical exfoliant alpha hydroxy acid) family. Its small stature means it penetrates much better than its counterparts for smoother, brighter skin. Acid newbies and sensitive skin types beware! More effective also means a higher chance of irritation. Check out Baby StepsPHA/AHA for Sensitive Skin if you feel Gold Standard is too strong for you.
5% Tranexamic Acid: This molecule was first used as an oral medicine to treat excessive bleeding. Researchers noticed an overall brighter complexion in patients, and now is a go-to ingredient to tackle pesky hyperpigmentation, giving our Gold Standard an "oomph!" in brightening power.
The Gold Standard's signature yellow color is created using a blend of natural flower and sweet potato extract. The formula is EO and fragrance free.

I’m loving this! Just a drop with my moisturizer is such an easy application. I see smoother brighter skin. I can see more dead skin cells on my cotton pad as well showing more buildup being exfoliated away!
I was hesitant at first to try Gold Standard because I have very sensitive skin, but I was able to get one of the testers and that sealed the deal. My face loves this treatment. It's always so smooth after I use it and I have a nice glow the next day. No irritation at all.
I love this exfoliator. I use this along with my moisturizer twice a week at night. I find it is comfortable and non drying. I will buy again.
I’ve been using Gold Standard for two months after receiving it as part of the Chemist Recommended offering. I use it nightly, mixed with my moisturizer. The difference in my skin texture is definitely noticeable. My face is smoother, brighter and more even. I’m happy with the results and how easy it was to incorporate this into my skincare routine.
I like how this can be used in different ways. I like to use this as my night routine. I add a drop to my moisturizer and have an awesome glow in the morning. It stings my face at first but then it’s fine.
