The formula contains: 10% Glycolic Acid - its progressive exfoliating action stimulates the skin's natural renewal process with a small molecular size that makes it effective in removing the build-up of dead cells on the surface of the skin; 2% Hibiscus Extract - enhances the exfoliating properties of glycolic acid while improving skin moisture; and lipochroman - to provide skin with powerful daily protection against external pollutions that can lead to premature aging.
When I first started using it I was kind of worried that 10% would be too intense for my skin even though the formula is meant to be non-irritating - which is why they recommend that you use it on alternate days for the first 2 weeks to allow skin to build tolerance gradually - I like to use it at night under my usual night cream because the glycolic acid increases sun-sensitivity - if you are going to use it during the day, don't forget your sunscreen on areas where product was applied prior to sun exposure. And while the serum is good for any skin type, it's not recommended for very sensitive skin.
