Nutrition experts consider almonds one of the best superfoods we can include in our diets. It provides the most calcium of any nut, is packed with plenty of vitamin E, and is a vegan-friendly source of protein for on-the-go snacking.
But this oval-shaped powerhouse’s benefits go far beyond being a nutrient-dense midday treat. Bitter almonds, a non-edible variety of the nut, are the source of mandelic acid.
Benefits of Mandelic Acid
Mandelic acid is an active skincare ingredient that goes head-to-head with common skin concerns like pigmentation, uneven texture, acne, and fine lines.
It’s a form of AHA– like glycolic acid–that accelerates cell turnover and promotes collagen production to give your skin a major glow-up while being gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.
The molecules in mandelic acid are the largest available in the skincare industry, which means that they don’t penetrate the skin as deeply as other forms of AHAs. That means those with sensitive skin that typically avoid acids can incorporate mandelic acid without fear of irritation.
With regular use, mandelic acid’s exfoliating capabilities keep your skin flawless by deeply cleansing pores, removing dead skin cells, and stimulating collagen protection.
