Glycolic Acid + Mandelic Acid 

Using Glycolic Acid and Mandelic Acid together can have a beneficial effect on the skin. Both of these ingredients are alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and are known for their ability to exfoliate the skin, increase cell turnover, and improve skin texture and tone.

Glycolic Acid is a smaller molecule than Mandelic Acid, which allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin. It helps to break down the bonds between dead skin cells, which can lead to smoother, brighter skin. Glycolic Acid can also stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Mandelic Acid, on the other hand, is a larger molecule that works more slowly on the skin's surface. It is gentle and less irritating than other AHAs, making it a great option for those with sensitive skin. Mandelic Acid has antibacterial properties and can help reduce the appearance of acne and hyperpigmentation.

Combining Glycolic Acid and Mandelic Acid can enhance the benefits of both ingredients. Together, they can help to exfoliate and brighten the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture and tone. However, it's important to use these ingredients carefully and not over-exfoliate the skin, as this can lead to irritation and sensitivity. It's best to start with a lower concentration of both ingredients and gradually increase as your skin becomes more accustomed to them. It's also important to wear sunscreen during the day, as AHAs can increase sun sensitivity.

How to use

How to Use Glycolic Acid and Mandelic Acid Serum in Professional Treatments:

  1. Begin by thoroughly cleansing your client's face with Uplifting Cleansing Oil and patting it dry.

  2. Examine your client's skin to determine if Glycolic Acid and Mandelic Acid Serum is an appropriate treatment options. This serum best suits clients with uneven skin tone, fine lines, wrinkles, or acne-prone skin.

  3. Apply a small amount of the serum to a clean cotton pad and gently wipe it over the client's face, neck, and décolleté. Avoid the eye area.

  4. Depending on your client's skin type and condition, you may choose to leave the serum on for 1-3 minutes before neutralizing it with a pH-balancing toner or water.

  5. If the client's skin tolerates the serum, you may leave it on for a longer period, up to 10 minutes.

  6. Rinse the client's skin thoroughly with cool water to remove any remaining product.

  7. Apply Moisturizing Complex with NMF serum to the client's skin to help calm and nourish it after the treatment.

  8. Instruct your client to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen for at least 24 hours after the treatment to prevent UV damage.


  • As with any professional treatment, obtaining a complete medical history from your client and performing a skin analysis to determine the best course of treatment is essential.

  • Always perform a patch test before using the serum on your client's face. Apply a small amount to a sensitive skin area, such as behind the ear, and wait 24 hours to check for any signs of irritation or allergic reaction.

  • Incorporate Glycolic Acid and Mandelic Acid Serum into a comprehensive skincare regimen that includes regular exfoliation, moisturizing, and sun protection. Centinol, Vit C Balm, and VIT C+ Serum are home care products.
