Non-Irritating Alternative to Direct Acid Exfoliation
- 4.00 - 5.00
NAAP is a non-acidic alternative to acid-based epidermal resurfacing. Instead of using direct acids like AHA/BHA or retinoids that are common in skincare, NAAP uses fermentation bio-derivatives and amino isolates that act as precursors to skin-compatible acids, encouraging visible radiance and visible surface regularity without the redness and inflammation associated with acids. NAAP was found non-irritating in an independent Single 48-hr Patch Test.
A postbiotic complex that acts as a precursor of skin-compatible natural acids.
Two forms of amino isolates mimic the visible surface-regularizing action of retinoids without any presence of retinoids or related acids.
A bio-ferment oligopeptide offers better exfoliation than alpha hydroxyl acids without irritation or inflammation.
A highly-purified natural levomenol offers surface barrier support, hydration and comfort.
A marine-derived exopolysaccharide increases water-retention capacity—essential with enhanced skin turnover.
Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if you may experience a negative initial reaction to a new product. It is recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating any new product into your regimen. We have outlined a general method for conducting your own patch test below based on the type of product.
- Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm.
- Keep the area dry.
- If the product has a specified duration of use, rinse off after this time has elapsed. Otherwise rinse off after 24 hours.
- If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.
