Brighter days are here to stay…
Introducing Generation Glow, the next generation of exfoliation for everyone. One formula combining two unique, active proprietary blends designed to exfoliate all skin types – including sensitive skin – while protecting your skin barrier.
One formula, a multitude of benefits and all without drying or stripping the skin. The result? A smooth, soft, radiant, healthy complexion.
What is it?
This next-generation resurfacer features five advanced, naturally-derived AHAs in a proprietary 5% Complex, including hero Lactic Acid, designed to smooth and boost luminosity. But what makes this formulation so unique is the combination of AHAs with fermented postbiotic-rich Australian botanicals designed to support the skin’s microbiome and barrier function, maintain hydration, and protect against free radical damage.
Who is it for?
Exfoliation is a game-changer. If your skin is looking dull, grey, and tired exfoliation is your ticket back to glowing, youthful skin. If any of your main concerns are uneven texture and tone, dullness, dehydration and pigmentation, this is the essence for you.
Generation Glow is suitable for everyone, no matter skin type or concern. Clinically proven and dermatologically tested specifically on a sensitive skin type, it’s even great if your skin tends to lean towards sensitive, and you’ve experienced skin stress or have struggled to tolerate the topical exfoliants you've reached for in the past.
Why is the skin’s microbiome so important?
The skin’s microbiome refers to the various bacterial colonies that live on the surface of the skin, it works like a protective shield to defend against harmful external bacteria. This diversity of skin flora is linked to the health of our skin and forms part of its immune system to protect against environmental triggers.
Generation Glow utilises ingredients that respect and optimise the skin microbiota - with antioxidant and wound healing properties to assist in protecting barrier integrity. This means we retain bacterial diversity by not over stripping or depleting natural lipids, ensuring a healthy balance of “good bacteria”.
How does it work?
Featuring five advanced actives in a naturally-derived 5% AHA complex, and infused with a blend of bio-fermented Australian Botanicals, Generation Glow works to resurface skin, boost hydration and increase brightness all while supporting the skin’s delicate microbiome.
Fruit Acid Proprietary Blend – 5% AHA Complex:
Our proprietary fruit acid blend is a naturally derived from fruit extracts Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Orange, Lemon and Sugar Maple. These powerful AHAs help to promote gentle exfoliation of dull surface skin cells, aiding cell turnover and renewal, increase ceramides in the skin’s protective barrier, boost hydration, increase luminosity and even tone and texture.
Lactic Acid is the hero in this formula, a gentle yet powerful AHA with a large molecular size, making it a more tolerable exfoliator for all skin types, including sensitive.
Citric, Malic, tartaric and Glycolic Acids make up the remaining big four, working together to exfoliate and polish the surface of the skin much more effectively to give a lit-from-within glow.
Alpha-H IQ Proprietary Blend:
Our proprietary blend of postbiotic-rich native Australian botanical extracts is designed to support the skin’s microbiome and barrier function, maintain hydration, and facilitate a smooth delivery of active ingredients.
With Native Snowflower, rich in nutrients with a multitude of skin enhancing benefits, Tasmanian Blue Gum, a type of Eucalyptus rich in amino acids, and Chamomile, best known for its soothing and calming properties working to ease, hydrate and soothe stressed skin.
These native Australian ingredients are bio-fermented via a unique sustainable fermentation process which yields a postbiotic-rich blend brimming with micronutrients. The benefit? Increased hydration, promoting even skin tone and providing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits to protect against free radicals.
How do you use it?
This milky-white exfoliant is dermatologically tested as gentle enough to be used daily for even those with sensitive skin, and unlike many other acids, can be used as part of your morning or evening routine.
After cleansing once per day (morning or evening), press Generation Glow into your face, neck and decolletage and follow with your regular serums and moisturiser. When using in your morning routine, be sure to finish with an SPF50+ daily.
For those new to acids or with a sensitive skin type: Introduce slowly twice per week and gradually build to a maximum of four times per week over time.
For those well versed in acid products: Generation Glow can be used daily on a tolerant skin, just be sure not to layer with other acids in the same morning or evening, and always listen to your skin, pulling back your routine for a few days at any signs of skin stress.
