Minimize imperfections associated with acne-prone skin with this exclusive complex of clinically-proven 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.

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 exfoliaton, 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).

Together, these ingredients achieve a 10% AHA level for safe and efficient AHA home care. To further minimize the risk of redness, tingling and stinging, ultra-soothing Lichochalcone from Chinese Licorice interrupts the biochemical cascade that leads to redness and other discomfort. This molecule also decreases lipase, an anti lipid enzyme produced by bacteria on skin’s surface and in pores.

Working with Lichochalcone is a compound from the fragrant wild flower, Meadowsweet (Spirea ulmaria). Dermatologist-tested, this molecule has been found to strengthen an element of the skin’s natural defense system: cathelicidins. These natural antibiotics preserve skin’s ecosystem, helping to maintain the balance of healthy flora on skin’s surface and in pores. A reduction in oil production and other imperfections is also seen.

Targeting imperfections and pore imbalances is a patented, fast-acting, purifying blend of the most active fractions of New Zealand and Australian Tea Tree oils. Specifically developed to balance hostile flora deep within pores in just five minutes, this dermatologist-tested blend calms redness as it cools the skin. Unlike regular Tea Tree oil, this blend won’t oxidize or cause irritation and does not contain common allergens from the Tea Tree family.

Dermatologist-tested for irritancy and sensitivity. Does not contain retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, synthetic colorants, fragrance or parabens.


Apply small amount of gel (about the size of a medium green pea) over clean, dry skin AM/PM or once a day. If blending with other products, apply the size of a small green pea. Allow 5 minutes for product to absorb before applying makeup.

Note: Some skin may experience slight stinging or tingling during the first few days of use, or if the product is applied after bathing or showering. If this occurs, wait five minutes after bathing or until skin is dry.

Caution: Avoid immediate eye area. If product enters eye, flush thoroughly with cool water.
