Soft Touch AHA

$16.00

A hyper-gentle, highly effective exfoliant to reveal smoother, clearer skin.

Get the skin-clearing power of alpha hydroxy acids without the irritation. Many AHAs like glycolic acid can damage sensitive skin; mandelic acid is the exception, providing similar levels of potency with much less irritation. Soft Touch helps clear clogged pores while brightening and firming even the most stubborn or sensitive skin. It’s fortified with skin-soothers like chamomile, aloe, and allantoin to keep your skin calm and healthy.

1.7 fl.oz./50ml

Clear, brighten, and firm, without the irritation.

Chamomile extract is blended in to provide a soothing, calming counterpoint to this resurfacing treatment.

How it works

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are skincare powerhouses. They dissolve the intercellular “glue” between dead cells on the surface of your skin, revealing the smooth, bright skin underneath.

Many AHAs can cause significant irritation and redness, especially to those with sensitive skin. Mandelic acid is the exception: it is a much larger molecule than glycolic acid, so it doesn’t penetrate the skin as deeply and causes less irritation.

Mandelic acid can increase cell turnover, fade hyperpigmentation, stimulate collagen production, and firm aging skin. Soft Touch AHA has 10% mandelic acid, along with skin-soothers like aloe, chamomile, and allantoin to give you bright, smooth skin with the least amount of irritation possible. Its light gel formula dries quickly and can be used under makeup and other skincare products.

Is it right for me?

Soft Touch AHA is suitable for a wide variety of skin types, and is especially suited to sensitive skin. To avoid over-exfoliating, it's best to use Soft Touch AHA once every 2-3 days until your skin adjusts, at which point it can be used daily. Like all AHAs, Soft Touch can be photosensitizing, so always use broad-spectrum sun protection when using this product.

NUT ALLERGY CAUTION: Please note that mandelic acid is derived from almonds. Check with your doctor before using.

All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.

Gentle Exfoliate

It’s gentle enough for my super sensitive skin! I use it one time a week because my skin is super sensitive but it works with my skin! Love it

Simple and Very effective!!!

I have reactive, sensitive, congested prone skin. This skin is holy grail for me. I put it on as the first layer. It keeps me smooth, clear, uncongested!!!! It’s smooth, light, everything else goes smooth after. It sinks into skin as if nonexistent but I automatically feel hydrated and plump. For me It’s a wonder product. It also tightens me up to! My pores become invisible!! I feel lifted.

Gentle Daily Use

This has been my favorite AHA product out of everything I've tried in my skincare routine. It's incredibly gentle, I use it twice daily and I never have any irritation of any kind - even with prescription retinol and once a week BHA peel. I love the ingredients, everything is incredibly skin reactivity conscious. It leaves the skin a bit "dry" right after use but it serves as a great primer in a way to add all of my serums and moisturizers on afterwards.

Amazing!

Because of this, I wake up each morning with skin that is soft to the touch. I see my skin tone evening and my pores tightening.

Soft Touch AHA

So far I really overall like this product! I’m actually loving ALL of the products I’ve recently purchased! The one downside of the AHA for me is the way it feels on my skin once dry.. a bit less soft than I prefer but the overall effect is great so far! I’ve only been using 5 of the products for a couple weeks at this point but I can already tell an overall better appearance with my skin!!! Even for the short amount of time I’ve been using the AHA, Rewind, C Serum, Liquid Gold and Night Shift, I definitely already see and feel a positive change in my skin!! Thank you for creating such wonderful products!!!!
