Mandelic Acid Foaming Cleanser with added Poly Hydroxy Acid
This combined mandelic acid and gluconic acid foaming cleanser exfoliates away pore-blocking dead skin cells and reduces breakouts. Over time it brightens skin tone and helps to fade hyperpigmentation. Formulated with our own proprietary skin-friendly blend of soap-free cleansing agents, Ultralase Mandelic Acid Face Wash produces a soft dense foam when mixed with water. This is the ultimate cleanser for achieving naturally clear skin and can produce visible effects in days. 100ml Ph 3.5
Ishtar was the first UK brand to develop Mandelic Acid leave-on treatments, and our mandelic acid cleanser is one of our most popular products. Ultralase face wash contains a multi-acid blend of 12% mandelic acid and gluconic acid in a gentle foaming base. This combination of Mandelic Acid - an alpha hydroxy acid - with Gluconic Acid - a poly hydroxy acid - is unique to the Ishtar brand and delivers fantastic results. Mandelic Acid is hands down the best acid for tackling adult acne and hyperpigmentation. Poly Hydroxy Acids, meanwhile, are third-generation acids attracting a lot of attention for their exciting ability to renew the skin without causing sensitization.
What Makes it Great:
- Ultralase face wash contains 6% Mandelic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid found in bitter almonds with unique antibiotic properties.
- Ultralase face wash also contains 6% Gluconic Acid, a Poly Hydroxy Acid found in honey with skin regenerative and exfoliating properties
- Ultralase Mandelic Acid and Gluconic Acid cleansing face wash refines and exfoliates the skin, reducing breakouts and preventing congestion.
- Long term use fades sun spots and discolouration.
- Ultralase Mandelic acid and Gluconic acid cleansing face wash uses a proprietary blend of gentle cleansing agents. It is vegan, not tested on animals and is
SLS and parabens free.
Directions:Moisten your face with warm water and massage in 1 or 2 pumps of mandelic acid foaming cleanser. Remove with a warm damp face cloth and rinse away any remaining residue. Use 1 to 2 times daily, depending upon your skincare needs.
If desired this face wash can be used with a sonic face brush.
New to acid-based skincare? If so, we do recommend introducing this to your routine once every other day for the first fortnight as different skin types require different levels of exfoliation. Exfoliating away dead skin cells can mean that more UV rays penetrate the skin. For this reason use of sun protection is advised whilst using any kind of acid-based skincare routine.
This product suits any adult skin prone to acne and breakouts as well as those seeking the rejuvenating benefits of acid exfoliation. It suits normal, combination and oily skin types.
Extra Info for teenage and/or sensitive skin:
We would not recommend launching straight into an intensive acid-based routine if you have teenage skin and/or sensitive skin. As the first step for these skin types we recommend our Calm and Clear range. This can later be supplemented with our mandelic acid range if needed - in which case we recommend using the Ultralase mandelic acid and gluconic acid face wash once every other day.
Formula v2.2 (spring/summer 2018) - a slightly softer cleanse but with the same exfoliating benefits and preserved with a new Ecorcert® preservative blend.
