The Resurgence Cream 10% is an exfoliating masterpiece that uses three of the most effective and natural alpha-hydroxy acids to deliver a superior exfoliation experience, in a soothing and skin nourishing cream balanced with a rich blend of natural fruit oils. Glycolic Acid, Pyruvic Acid and Lactic Acid all contribute to the deep penetrating and fast acting skin desquamation action. This powerful formula removes dead skin and revives the complexion in a delicate manner, producing a youthful, radiant look as a best-in-class exfoliator.
Glycolic acid occurs naturally as a trace component in sugarcane, grapes and other fruits. As the first in the alpha-hydroxy carboxylic acids, it is one of the smallest molecules with acid functionality, which easily penetrates the skin.
This useful organic acid reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis by weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together, dislodging them to reveal fresh new cells beneath.
Lactic Acid is another excellent alpha-hydroxy acid that usually occurs in sour milk but is also found in molasses due to partial conversion of sugars in apples and other fruits. With a natural affinity to the skin, it’s also very effective at exfoliating and softening the surface.
Pyruvic Acid is the third alpha-hydroxy acid included in this superb formula. As an intermediate in sugar metabolism found in cane sugar juice, and a precursor to lactic acid, Pyruvic acid is excellent for treating oily and problematic skin, with excellent dead skin removal abilities.
Mixed and balanced with Avocado oil, Soybean Oil and Squalane pressed from Olives, the exfoliation action is moderated to ensure no discomfort, and maintain the overall health of the freshly exposed skin cells.
These natural moisturizers more than compensate for any loss of moisture through exfoliation and help to stimulate the proliferation of collagen thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
Courtney’s Application Recommendations: The Resurgence Cream 10% may be used nightly for thicker, sun damaged skin – and is recommended by Sykes to utilize every other evening for all other skin types. Courtney recommends alternating between the Resurgence Cream 10% and any of the Nourishing Serums, for serious anti-aging and skin plumping results.
