AHA acid – revives the skin
AHA (glycolic acid) or alpha-hydroxy acid belongs to a group of plant and animal-derived acids. The acid has a powerful effect on the process of skin aging and renewal, which is why it became an essential part of many anti-aging products around the globe.
AHA acid supports the moisture balance and gives the skin an even, fresh, and radiant complexion. Visible wrinkles, lines and scars can disappear entirely. Although it is primarily used for exfoliation, AHA acid can also correct skin discoloration, prevent the appearance of acne and blackheads, and help better absorb other cosmetic products. Another way they help increase the skin’s vitality is by promoting blood flow. This ensures that skin gets a proper amount of nutrients and makes it look less pale and dull.
BHA acid – removes all impurities
BHA ACID is also known as beta hydroxy acid, and it is widely used in skincare because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. These acids come in several forms, but the one most frequently used in cosmetic products is salicylic acid. BHA acid (salicylic acid) reduces impurities to the deep layers of the skin and refines pores. It regulates the production of oil (sebum) and is thus perfect in fighting acne and preventing their emergence.

Konsens® AHA/BHA tonic works deep into the pores and cleanses the skin while gently removing dead skin cells. Thanks to its powerful AHA acid, the tonic stimulates cell renewal and smoothens the surface of the skin, giving it a healthy and radiant complexion. BHA acid on the other hand will reduce all skin impurities, refine pores and stimulate collagen production. It has an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effect, so it can inhibit the formation of bacteria, skin fungus and other microorganisms on the skin.

Babassu Oil – extracted from the fruit of a palm tree native to South America, this oil is rich in short-chain fatty acids. It cleanses by working deep into the pores, removes waterproof make-up, has anti-inflammatory properties, and absorbs quickly.
