Glycolic T.L.C. Framboos™ is a refreshing, hydrating gel that resurfaces dull, congested skin by gently lifting dead skin cells away, revealing an even-toned and radiant complexion. Fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and other signs of aging will be greatly diminished, along with excess oiliness, acne and the appearance of pores. The results include greater clarity, smoother texture and increased collagen formation. Our powerful T.L.C. Framboos™ blend of glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric and salicylic acids and Raspberry Extract, sinks in easily and delivers the most effective and precise level of chemical exfoliation without harsh side effects. Horse Chestnut, Bearberry and White Tea help to calm, brighten and protect. Go from a lifeless complexion to an absolutely luminous one, practically overnight! Suitable for all skin types. The pH level of T.L.C. Framboos™ is 3.8-4.0.
AHA's can be irritating if not formulated properly. We have added a cactus plant enzyme blend that is designed to reduce neurosensory irritation caused by the application of topical products such as AHAs. Glycolic T.L.C. gets the job done with little to no redness or stinging. D.E. only formulates with clean, non-toxic ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of the formulations. We never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its safety and bio-compatibility. You won’t find sensitizing colorants, perfumes or fragrant essential oils of any kind in our products, making them appropriate for every skin type. This is our commitment to you.
