What makes this product unique?
3.2% PHA + 0.8% BHA
Gluconolactone + Lactobionic Acid (PHA) are celebrated as the sensitive skin friendly exfoliating agents. PHA, with great molecular size, exfoliates the skin surface very gently, resulting in minimal potential for irritation. Besides warding off the concern of over-exfoliation, PHA (water-loving humectant) attracts moisture to skin and keeps dryness at bay. Multiple roles, Gluconolactone has antioxidative iron-chelating benefits, hunting down oxidative stress, which is the contributory cause of aging. Surface exfoliation is perfect, what about the inner pores? Salicylic Acid (BHA) is included at a sweet yet effective concentration to confront pore-related concerns and soothe inflammation.
SyriCalm® + Prickly Pear Extract + Yeast Extract
SyriCalm® features extracts of ancient Chinese herb “Fuling” and an exquisite type of large perennial reed grass, both of which are Ecocert- and NaTrue-certified natural actives with in vitro and in vivo evidence in soothing and strengthening easily-irritated, stressed skin. Together with Yeast Extract and Prickly Pear Extract (wealth source of polyphenols and antioxidants), Geek & Gorgeous Calm Down grants extra sensitive skin a rest assured gentle, anti-inflammatory skin-renewing experience hardly found with other potent exfoliants.
All Geek & Gorgeous products are fragrance free, alcohol free and never tested on animals.
