AHA Toner
AHA Toner
This Alpha Hydroxy Toner removes all dead skin cells and excess oil or dirt left on the skin after cleansing. It
will leave your skin looking bright and refreshed. This product is slightly scented. Not for sensitive skin
types.  Any skin care line is not complete without either a toner or astringent as part of the skin care regime
you recommend.  It is a critical step that is often over looked.  This step closes the pores, adjusts the pH of
the skin and removes any remaining cleanser or dirt from the skin.   This product is clear and has a light
inherent scent.  

"Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) occur naturally in several foods and include citric acid (from citrus fruits),
malic acid (from apples), tartaric acid (from grapes), lactic acid (from milk), and glycolic acid (from
sugarcane). When applied to the skin, fruit acids supplement the skin's natural exfoliation process by
loosening and sloughing away the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing the newer, smoother cells
underneath. This process rejuvenates the skin by improving circulation and stimulating new cell growth,
resulting in a fresher, healthier complexion and reduced pore size."  SOURCE: "Making Aromatheapy
