Our RENUAdvanced Skin Care System is created with ingredients selected to improve the skin’s look and feel. Not only do we use fragrance-free, cruelty-free, and gluten free products, we also include PHAs to be even more gentle on your skin. Find out what those are here.
First things first, what are PHAs?
Polyhydroxy acids, or PHAs, are types of chemical compounds used in skincare products. They are similar to another common skincare ingredient called alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). PHAs, like AHAs, help to exfoliate the skin, which means they help remove dead skin cells on the surface.
What’s special about PHAs is that they are typically gentler on the skin compared to AHAs, making them a good choice for people with sensitive skin. PHAs also have some other benefits like helping to hydrate the skin and improving its overall texture. So, in simple terms, PHAs are ingredients in skincare products that can make your skin look and feel better while also being kind to it.
Do other skincare companies include PHAs in their products?
They certainly do. Cosmopolitan detailed a few products from places like Sephora, Dermstore, and Anthropologie, so it’s clear other companies are starting to realize the usefulness of these compounds. One specific eye cream with added PHAs is $108 per ounce.
Why does ASEA choose to include them in our products?
Here at ASEA, we have a commitment to delivering high quality products without negative side effects. Giving your body what is already native to its delicate systems allows our products to work more quickly and to be used consistently. By including PHAs in our RENUAdvanced Skin Care System, we ensure your skin will react positively to the products, and you will be able to use them more regularly than you would harsher skin care treatments.
