Why is it good for skin of colour?
The most common way to exfoliate is to use a physical scrub and to mechanically rip skin cells off. However, this is not limited to just dead skin cells and can lead to skin sensitivity, a damaged skin barrier and micro tears.
A more even, controlled and gentle exfoliation is chemical exfoliation, with large Alpha Hydroxy Acid molecules i.e. Mandelic acid and Lactic acid.
We prefer to avoid Glycolic acid for skin of colour as it is a small molecule and can lead to hot spots.
It is 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation i.e. No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.
Irritation can be more problematic for darker skin tones, and therefore it should be avoided where possible.
Who is this product for?

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
I am a trained Human Resource Professional with an MBA in Human Resource Management-Training and Development and have amassed fifteen (15) years corporate experience in that discipline.
I decided to embark on a new career path which led me to be involved in my family's Physiotherapy Clinic. During that period I became very aware of the multi-faceted world of wellness. I settled into the area of skin care and began immersing myself in the vast amounts of available knowledge. Some recommendations therein led me to experiment with my teenage daughter and myself as we both had skin challenges. I can say now that I am beginning to see the best skin of my life and regret not knowing about the regimen earlier.
I am the proud promoter of products and treatments which ensure minimum irritation but maximum efficacy.
The love of skincare has prompted the birth of the business Skincare Approved by G, to share and promote with those persons who believe in following a similar skincare philosophy.
Thank you for allowing me to take you on this journey.
