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.
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.
