Gaia Organics unique blend of fruit acids (AHAs), essential oils and herbal extracts combine to assist in achieving the following benefits:
- Clearer, smoother skin
- Anti-aging by stimulating collagen and elastin naturally
- Balancing oil production
- Allowing moisturisers to adhere better
- Continuing the cleansing process
- Restoring the pH level of your skin after cleansing
- Providing antioxidants.
Improves Moisturisation: Removal of the dead skin build up, or cellular debris improves skin texture. The smoother skin in turn can boost the effectiveness, absorption, and adhesion of your moisturiser. To support the moisturising effect of the AHAs, is a combination of natural emollients and plant extracts.
Balances Oil Production: Removal of dead skin cells allows normal oil production to resume. Essential oils are also used to assist in balancing sebum production. Soothes: A mix of natural anti-inflammatories ensure a soothing, calming toner.
Maintains the skin’s pH: The skin has a level of acidity of about pH 4 to 5.5. In addition to helping protect skin from “the elements” (such as wind or pollutants), this “acid mantle”, as it is known, inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi. Loss of acidity causes the skin becomes more prone to damage and infection. Over washing or using cleansers that are too strong can result in the loss of the acid mantle.

Please Note: Genuine Fruit Acids cannot thin the skin as reported for other Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Only if spent surface cells are physically exfoliated, can skin become slightly more vulnerable to solar damage. Being fruit-eating animals by design, we are biologically constituted to eat fruit and perspire its acids.

About to place my second order.20/05/2016, By SophieI found the product very harsh on my skin. After a few applications my skin felt very dry and looked like leather. However, I love the Gaia Organics Royal Bio-nutricell lotion.
