Skincare brand Medik8 has released an at-home 10% glycolic acid peel called Sleep Glycolic.
According to the company, the product is formulated using glycolic acid, glycerine and Korean clover extract and is suitable for normal skin types, including blemish-prone skin, oily skin types, uneven textured skins and those prone to visible hyperpigmentation.
Daniel Isaacs, director of research at Medik8, commented, “In Sleep Glycolic we have optimised our free, active acid content by lowering our pH to 3.5 to achieve a free active acid value of 10%. This gives us a truly powerful glycolic acid formula. Crystal encapsulation and bi-weekly usage helps us to control this power, reducing irritation from the formula to maintain a healthy skin barrier.”
