AHA Moments in Skin Care…
With the seasonal temperature change, the skin channels its energy towards preparing itself for further changes in weather conditions.
Clayton Shagal Fruit Acid AHA Products
Every so often, our skin requires assistance in renewing
itself. Exfoliation helps revitalize the skin’s
complexion, smoothen its texture, and refresh its appearance. Now that we are free from intense UV exposure and in between weather extremities, it’s an ideal time to boost exfoliation treatments with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) products. AHA products help dissolve the “glue” that binds dead skin cells together, hereby freeing the epidermis of layers of dead skin cells. Clayton Shagal AHA products are made from a blend of fruit acids and sugar cane extracts that help promote skin clarity and radiant complexions by eliminating surface debris and stimulating skin cell regeneration. Clayton Shagal AHA products come in two forms: AHA Scrub (pH 4.0) at 20% buffered concentration and AHA Exfoliating Mask (pH 4.35) at 15% buffered concentration.
Benefits of Bilberry Extract
57% of the Clayton Shagal AHA composition is derived from Bilberry (European Blueberry) Extract, which is renowned for its lactic acid element. Lactic acid can help brighten uneven skin complexions, blemishes, or sun-spots, making it an ideal ingredient for fighting photo-damage.
Benefits of Sugar Cane
27% of the Clayton Shagal AHA composition is from Sugar Cane and Sugar Maple, which are sources for glycolic acid. Glycolic acid penetrates the top skin layers to “unglue” the build up of dead skin cells. As the dead skin cells are sloughed off, the skin feels soft and smooth. The glycolic compound is ideal for decongesting excessively oily skin, smoothing dryflaky skin, and softening rough skin textures.
Benefits of Orange and Lemon Citrus
16% of the Clayton Shagal AHA composition is derived from Orange and Lemon Citrus Acid. The combination of orange and lemon help cleanse and tone the skin, making it beneficial for congested or keratinized skin. Generally, citrus acid helps promote cellular turnover to eliminate layers of unhealthy layers of hyper-pigmented skin cells. This in turn improves oxygenation and circulation to revitalize dull, blotchy skin.
