Making Skin Smoother Than His Pickup Lines!

Our Exfoliating Face Serum is an effective yet mild exfoliant that carefully removes the dead skin cells to reveal a radiant, glowing complexion.

  • This milky, ceramides-infused aha serum has Lactic Acid which works to decongest pores and gently remove dead skin cells.
  • Hyaluronic Acid, on the other hand, retains moisture, ensuring the skin doesn't feel too dry or stretchy after using it.
  • Its other ingredient, Pentavitin is a hydrating plant-based compound that provides a much-needed burst of hydration, making the skin look dewy.

(Yes, it is suitable for beginners!)

  • Our Exfoliating Face Serum has lavender extract in it due to which, its colour is not transparent.
  • Also, our AHA serum is artificial fragrance-free. Any fragrance that you might be smelling is due to the natural smell of the ingredients. Nothing to worry though as it goes away instantly.
  • Our AHA serum has a pH value of 3.6 and is formulated with Lactic Acid, an AHA which is a gentle exfoliant. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.86 (indicates acid strength).
  • When AHA products are formulated with around the same pH and pKa levels, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity which reduces the irritation on the skin and maximises the efficacy of the product.
- For best results, use our AHA serum twice a week as a part of your nighttime skincare routine.
- Apply 3-4 drops of the serum after cleansing and toning your face.
- Spread it evenly by gently tapping on the skin, allowing it to absorb nicely. Make sure to follow it with a night cream.

• Lactic Acid: An alpha hydroxy acid, Lactic Acid helps exfoliate the skin by loosening the bond between dead skin cells to reveal a radiant, new complexion. It also helps stimulate collagen renewal for smoother, even-toned skin.

• Sodium Hyaluronate: A water-soluble form of Hyaluronic Acid, it penetrates deep into the skin layers to replenish hydration levels, eliminating dryness and flakiness.

• Saccharide Isomerate: A 100% naturally derived plant extract that functions as a water binding agent (humectant), emollient and skin replenisher.

• Glycyrrhiza Glabra Extract (Licorice Root Extract): A rich source of antioxidants, Licorice extract contains liquiritin, an active compound that helps to disperse and remove existing melanin in the skin.

Our products are infused with the goodness of ceramides;

• Oryza Sativa (Rice Phytoceramide): A natural, plant-derived nutrient, Oryza Sativa has skin-soothing and antioxidant properties which boost the skin's barrier function and keep the skin well hydrated.

• Amorphophallus (Konjac Phytoceramide): A natural moisturizer, Konjac ceramide helps the skin stay youthful and plump by penetrating the epidermis to bring moisture to the surface and boost collagen synthesis.

Full Ingredient List: Purified Water, Lactic Acid, Propanediol, Saccharide Isomerate, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Rice (Oryza Sativa) Phytoceramide, Zaminkand Root (Amorphophallus Konjac) Phytoceramide, Phospholipids, Sphingolipids, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Lavender Extract (Lavandula Angustifolia), Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza Glabra) Extract.

FAQs

Q: Why is our Exfoliating Face Serum cloudy?

A: We have added Lavender extract in our Exfoliating Face Serum for skin benefits due to which the colour is not transparent.

Q: Is our Exfoliating Face Serum fragrance-free?

A: Yes, our Exfoliating Face Serum is artificial fragrance-free.

The fragrance that you might be smelling is due to the natural smell of the ingredients. Nothing to worry though as it goes away instantly.

What is the pH of this serum?

This serum has a pH value of 3.6.

Do I need to use a chemical exfoliating product if I'm already using a facial scrub?

Chemical exfoliants contain gentle AHA compounds such as Lactic Acid that gently peels away the dead skin layers without harming the skin in any way.
On the other hand, physical exfoliants such as facial scrubs may contain minute grains (walnut shells or coffee) that can cause tiny tears in the skin, resulting in visible signs of premature ageing.
Chemical exfoliation is more suitable as there are zero chances of causing tiny tears. But it is advisable to consult a dermatologist before using one and even reading the instructions carefully.

What does Lactic Acid do for the skin?

Lactic Acid exfoliates by loosening the bonds between dead skin cells to reveal a more radiant complexion. It helps with reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and making the skin look more youthful. It is also used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion.

What is the texture of the product?

This is a lightweight, quick-absorbing water-based serum. No, it cannot be compared to an emulsion or a water-based cream.

Will this serum work well if I have acne?

Our Exfoliating Face Serum may irritate your skin if you have active acne. We recommend not to put it on your skin if you have acne-prone skin or any small, open wounds.

 

What skincare products should I refrain from using if I'm using this serum?

We'd recommend you not to pair this serum with either a Vitamin C, retinol or any Azelaic acid-based serums as the acids can react with each other and cause irritation or skin purging.

When can I expect to see results?

We recommend using this serum twice a week for beginners. Once your skin gets used to it and there are no visible signs of distress, you can increase the frequency to up to 3-4 times a week. This is a powerful exfoliating serum and you should probably see visible results in 1-2 weeks of recommended use.

Do I have to rinse the serum off with cold water post application?

No, our serum is designed to be absorbed into the skin (and not sit on top of it). So, do not wash it after application. Apply a few drops on your face after cleansing and toning and wait for a few minutes before using another product.

Can this serum help fade away hyperpigmentation and acne scars?

Yes, this serum is an ideal choice to help fade away dark spots, acne scars and pigmentation to give you an even-toned complexion.

Can I use this serum in my AM skincare routine?

Yes, this serum can be used as a part of your AM skincare routine though we would suggest you use it in the PM routine instead. Since our skin repairs itself at night, it will give you far better results.
If you are using it as a part of your AM routine, then apply it after cleansing and toning. The AHAs present in the serum can increase skin sensitivity to the sun so it is advised that you follow it up with a rich moisturiser and sunscreen (at least SPF 40).

 

Can I use this serum with a Hyaluronic Acid serum? If yes, what is the correct way to layer them?

Yes, you can use both the serums together! Start by cleansing and toning your face and then apply the Chemist At Play Hydrating Face Serum for an instant hydration boost. Allow it to absorb into the skin and then follow up with the Chemist At Play Exfoliating Face Serum to gently exfoliate the skin.

Can I use this serum with a Retinol serum?

We would recommend you not pair this serum with a retinol-based serum as the strong chemical compounds can react and may cause skin irritation. In case you want to use both, please use them on alternate days.
