What makes this product unique?

30% Gluconolactone (PHA) + 15% Lactic Acid (AHA)

The major similarity between PHA and AHA is their gentle yet amazing ability in exfoliating on the surface of skin by breaking down the matrix materials that hold dead skin together. Gluconolactone has a larger molecular size as compared to lactic acid, allowing it to penetrate the skin at a slower rate, resulting in less potential for sensitizing reactions. Gluconolactone also offers antioxidant iron-chelation effects, hunting down oxidative stress, which is the causal factor of aging. Both water-soluble PHA and AHA carry hydrating properties, keeping skin moist and bouncy while smoothly exfoliating the skin surface.

2.5% Boswellia Serrata Gum Extract + Beta-Glucan + Anthocyanin

Supercharging calmness on this gentle acid formula, Chemist Confessions Baby Steps includes a generous amount of skin-soothing agents that dramatically improve the look of redness and signs of sensitive skin. Boswellia serrata extract and beta-glucan (derived from yeast or oats) are naturally anti-inflammatory. Anthocyanins are important antioxidants that make raspberries red, grapes purple, blueberries blue, and your skin youthful.

All Chemist Confession products carried by Worthee Cosmetics are 100% authentic (or your money back) and fragrance free.

What does it do?

30% of any regular-use exfoliating agent might seem overpowering, but not with the PHA in Chemist Confessions Baby Steps. Formulated with both potency and gentleness in mind, this PHA + AHA acid booster aims to transform your skin surface smoothness and radiance, by dislodging dead, dulling skin cells to reveal more even-toned, glowing and plump skin.
