AHA Fruit Acid Complex
AXI Fruit Acid AHA Complex is a concentrated blend of five botanical extracts: bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, lemon, and orange. These extracts contain several naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids. These citrus based Alpha Hydroxy Acids typically work by removing the older top layer of skin (like a peel). The astringent effect reduces pore size which promotes younger smoother looking skin, while increasing the rate of cell renewal.
The pH of this product is 4-5% and usage level can be from 5-15%. However, AHA’s do increase the chance of sunburn and recommend use at a lower level initially because of sun sensitivity. Consumers need to be informed of this potential and somewhere this has to be relayed about UV light and exposure.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
