Garden of Wisdom

Glycolic Acid Serum 5%


Suitable for Vegetarians


Garden Of Wisdom Glycolic Acid Serum 5% helps exfoliate, hydrate and treat hyperpigmentation while enhancing collagen production to reduce acne scars, target age spots, reduce fine lines and even treat Keratosis Pilaris ('chicken skin').

Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA); a group of chemical exfoliants that help dissolve the 'glue' that holds skin cells together. Garden Of Wisdom's Glycolic Acid Serum is the most natural Glycolic Acid serum, which, unlike many comparable products, is derived from sugar cane rather than using synthetically-derived ingredients. The small particle size of Glycolic Acid means that it can easily penetrate the skin to work more effectively.

An excellent all-round face serum for sun-damaged complexions, acne scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and even Keratosis Pilaris, Glycolic Avid Serum exfoliates the top layer of skin to reduce rough, dry and hyper-pigmented areas. Unlike some manual scrubs, which leave your skin irritated and inflamed, Glycolic Acid Serum works gently. By helping to increase Hyaluronic Acid levels, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves you with soft, plump and hydrated skin. 

Avoid Glycolic Acid serum if you have oily, spot-prone skin and choose Salicylic Acid 2% Serum instead. High strengths of Glycolic Acid may cause inflammation. pH value 3.83.

All Garden Of Wisdom products are cruelty free, suitable for vegetarians and free from Alcohol and Silicones. Serum bottles are made of PET and are 100% recyclable. 

Use Glycolic Acid Serum as part of your evening regimen after cleansing. Use it a couple of times a week, gradually increasing the amount and frequency if required. Use sunscreen in the morning. Acids can damage your skin if used incorrectly; always patch test. Build your complete Garden Of Wisdom skincare regimen here.

Do not use on irritated skin and discontinue if irritation occurs. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse with warm water. If using in the day follow with an SPF.
