Still searching for that “just right” AHA that’s going to brighten your skin without irritating your delicate skin? Mandelic acid may be the answer for you. Like lactobionic acid, this almond-derived alpha hydroxy acid is perfect for people who want the results without the redness and inflammation.

What Makes Mandelic Acid Different?

Many skincare acids consist of small molecules, allowing them to penetrate deeply into the layers of your skin to accelerate cell turnover. While this makes them wonderful for improving tone, complexion, and the signs of aging, it can take a toll on even the healthiest of skin.

Mandelic acid is different because the acid molecules are much larger, which keeps them on the surface of your skin. It quickly gets to work dissolving and buffing away dead skin cells, leaving you with noticeably smaller pores and a more even skintone. Prolonged use can also help your skin recover from fine lines and hyperpigmentation, as older layers of skin are exfoliated and new cells take their place.

Mandelic Acid Products We Love

Make mandelic acid the center of attention in your beauty routine with a range of affordable products offered by NuCelle.

Mandelic Toner is infused with 2% Mandelic acid and marine extracts to drench skin with moisture and protect against environmental hazards that can damage the skin barrier.
