Citric Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that naturally occurs in citrus fruits like lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits. It has the ability to exfoliate the skin without the use of abrasive ingredients (aka chemical peels). Citric acid is known to assist with the reduction of wrinkles by softening defining lines and by improving the overall look and feel of the skin.
We incorporate citric acid in our Bath Salts and also our Citrus and Bamboo Face Scrub. Our intent is to provide products that, when allowed to sit on the skin's surface, will remove dead skin cells and expose the new more youthful skin below.
We choose to avoid ingredients that may damage the tiny blood vessels that exist just below the skins surface that cause reddness and irritation.
