🍋 Lemon Extract 🍋
The Alpha Hydroxy Acids in Lemon Extract also exfoliate dead skin cells, aiding in faster cellular turnover. The result is REJUVENATED young-looking skin.
Did you know that Lemon Extract also contains 7-10% citric acid? Which is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid similar to Glycolic or Lactic Acid. It can exfoliate dead skin cells to thin and smooth the stratum corneum (outer most layer of skin) to increase cellular turnover, stimulate collagen production and increase skin flexibility.
