description

a-gel is the first product in the a-series (active) to compliment the b-series (basic) of basic skincare staples. a-gel is a weightless and plush gel serum designed to deliver a gentle dose of 1% salicylic acida-gel is formulated for maximum delivery of a lower dose of salicylic acid to help maintain skin clarity and smoothness in the long term while still being gentle on sensitive skin. the salicylic acid in a-gel helps control skin texture by ungluing the bonds that hold dead skin cells on the surface of your skin and inside your pores. unlike alpha hydroxy acids glycolic acid and lactic acid which are water soluble, salicylic acid is oil soluble meaning it can reach further into your pores to help clear out build up. at a 1% concentration, salicylic acid can exfoliate your skin to soften and refine texture and it can help calm skin redness.

a-gel's texture is lightweight and plush and it instantly absorbs into the skin for a non-greasy, non-sticky finish.

 " I think as individuals we often want fast results. when it comes to taking care of your skin, there really is no such thing. I wanted to develop a product that is designed for the long term. I didn't want to create an exfoliating acid product with too much of a risk of irritation from over exfoliation. at a 1% concentration, salicylic acid is effective without the excess dryness you may experience from higher concentrations. a lot of similar products on the market have undesirable textures so a huge focus in the development of a-gel aside from efficacy was ensuring it could incorporate into a routine easily and feel nearly undetectable on the skin once it absorbed. if you suffer from more complicated skin, sometimes its nicer to feel like you are letting your skin breathe even though we know skin cells don't have lungs ;)  " - jonah ray (owner & founder)
