COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid is a gentle chemical exfoliant with 7% Glycolic acid (AHA). It removes pore-clogging debris and dead skin cells, while simultaneously moisturizing your skin. AHAs are humectants, meaning they can retain moisture, hence they are preferred for dry and damaged skin. AHAs are derived from natural substances.

Ingredients we love:
- Glycolic Acid (Glycolzuur): The most widely researched AHA. Gently removes dead skin cells, smoothing out skin. Fades hyperpigmentation, and supports the skin’s own collagen production.
- Panthenol: A provitamin with moisturizing, hydrating abilities, that has anti-inflammatory and protective properties. Helps prevent irritation.
- Niacinamide: Prevents the effects of aging in the skin by stimulating the synthesis of ceramides, improving the skin barrier, fading dark spots en diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.
- Apply an appropriate amount to the skin using a cotton pad
- Focus on congested areas (such as the T-zone and chin)
- Use preferably at night
- AHA's can make your skin extra sensitive to sunlight. Make sure you use a sunscreen if you're going out in the sun.
- Begin using only once a week and once your skin has adjusted to the AHA, you can increase the use to 2-3 times a week.
- It is discouraged to use this product in combination with other AHA/BHA/Retinol/Vitamin C products
