“Super gentle. But I still glow

A super mild peel that brightens the skin nicely.

It evened out my complexion – I had some discoloration.

And I have sensitive skin so I’ve been very picky about trying acid peels to avoid irritation”

– Anna (Open Formula customer)

Gently exfoliates for a smooth skin

4% partially neutralized (aka ‘buffered’) lactic acid gently lightens the skin adding a healthy glow. Exfoliates dead skin cells to expose newer better looking skin on your face.

Use on sensitive skin

How lactic acid works

  • Lactic acid penetrates through the top layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the bond that holds them together to make them shed
  • So new, better looking skin shows on the surface of your face
“lactic acid resulted in increased skin firmness and thickness and improvement in skin smoothness and in the appearance of lines and wrinkles”
-Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
“significantly decreased the [look of] melasma area… and also melasma severity”
-International Scholarly Research Notices

Feels amazing on your skin.

I had my doubts but this actually performed better than I thought. I know it’s buffered but I was still expecting it to tingle. Not really, it actually felt fine.

I didn't have anything to lose since I always had bad acne -whether from certain foods or stress - my skin has always been sensitive. I started noticing a difference within 3-4 days. My skin started looking clearer and vibrant.

I was a little worried about it being too harsh for my skin (I have sensitive skin) but it was only tingling for 20 seconds max. Skin feels great now.

It is one of the best skin care products that I own. This is a great product if you are just starting to use AHA/BHA and have sensitive skin.
