Patented Alpha-Hydroxy Acid with clinically-proven soothing plant extracts.
Skin Types: Aging, acne, discolored, rough, scaly, ashy, clogged, previously intolerant of Glycolic Acid Minimize visible imperfections within days with this exclusive complex of clinically-proven soothing plant extracts and the next generation in AHAs – the patented* AHAminoPlexTM molecule, developed by the pioneers of AHA skin therapy, Drs. Van Scott and Yu. Produced via a unique bonding process that attaches Arginine, a naturally-derived Amino Acid, to the pure Glycolic Acid molecule (fruit-derived), AHAminoPlex prolongs glycolic delivery into skin over a period of eight to sixteen minutes. This controlled delivery system avoids the severe spike of irritation that occurs within seconds of applying simple Glycolic Acid. Tests comparing the AHAminoPlex molecule to uncontrolled Glycolic Acid show both acids produce the same exfoliation, cell turnover, hydration and other age-fighting benefits. But only AHAminoPlex’s controlled delivery allows skin to tolerate the acid with little-to-no sensations of irritation – including stinging, burning and redness – even on the first use (some sensitive skin may experience passive discomfort during the first few applications). The AHAminoPlex molecule is accompanied by lactic acid (from vegetable sources) attached to a dedicated delivery vehicle. Together, these ingredients achieve a 10% AHA level at 3.5 pH – the exact standard set by the FDA for safe and efficient AHA home care. To further minimize the risk of redness, tingling and stinging, Age-Limit contains clinically-tested levels of soothing White Tea and Sea Whip along with a Brazilian plant complex of Kola, Mate and Guarana that is clinically-proven to reduce the irritating effects of AHAs. Age-Limit is developed for all skin types, even those that have been unable to use glycolic acid in the past.
