Biossance is a brand of skincare that hopes to change the world. In 2003, their scientists began a project that would change the world. From inside their Berkeley labs, they developed patented technology that allowed them to create an accessible cure for malaria. Today, over 120 million royalty-free treatments have been successfully given thanks to this technology. Inspired to continue using innovative biotechnology to make a positive impact on the world, they turned to skincare, and the ingredients people put on their faces and bodies every day. Drawing on the rich history of science and sustainability, they create skincare that is incredibly effective and safe without harming the environment or animals. Because the products you use make a difference for your health and the health of the planet. Only the most trustworthy and powerful ingredients are used in Biossance products. Because their standards for clean beauty are high, and the standards for their products are even higher. All of their orders are shipped carbon neutral at no additional cost to you. They do this by funding tree planting and reforestation projects. Trees are great detoxifiers and actively absorb and remove CO2 from our atmosphere.

I am reviewing their Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Facial today. All of Biossance's products have Squlane in them as their "base" ingredient, for anti-aging. It takes just 10 minues to give your skin a triple-action treat with their all-in-one peel, exfoliator and mask. Glycolic acid, multi-alpha-hydroxy acids and mineral spheres work together to gently polish away dull, rough patches and minimize fine lines, discoloration and enlarged pores to reveal a glowing, baby smooth complexion. With this glycolic facial, get ready to send your skin’s radiance into the stratosphere with this exfoliating change agent: 

  • glycolic, lactic, malic and tartaric acids renew and brighten skin
  • fine mineral spheres gently polish to smooth and soften
  • squalane and hyaluronic acid plump and hydrate
  • gently yet effectively removes dead skin cell buildup
  • reduces the look of fine lines, discoloration and enlarged pores
This glycolic facial is for external use only. Use only as directed. Avoid eye area. It is recommended that a patch test be done prior to use if you are particularly sensitive. If irritation occurs, consult a dermatologist. 

In a clinical report, 100% of women confirm that they saw an overall difference in skin texture. 97% agree that they saw a difference in skin brightness*. 94% saw a visible improvement in wrinkles and firmness**. (*Based on a 1-use clinical study of 31 women aged 30 to 60, once daily use. **Based on a 28-day clinical study of 31 women aged 30 to 60, once daily use.)

How to use:
Apply a thin layer of the glycolic facial to clean skin. Avoid eye area. A tingling sensation may occur. Leave on 3-10 minutes. Dampen skin, gently massage, rinse thoroughly. Use up to 2 times a week. 


TIPS:
  • AHAs may increase sun sensitivity due to their exfoliating action. Apply a sunscreen such as Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 during the day when using this product. For sensitive skin, we recommend a patch test prior to use. If irritation persists, discontinue use. This can be done during the day or at night, it doesn't matter. 
  • For a glycolic facial, this is very gentle and doesn't give one an intense peel. I am used to intense peels and this one could be intense for those who are not used to peels but for most it will give some redness and itching during the peel but in general it is a light peel that should cause some flaking. I feel that this peel is a nice way to unclog pores and get rid of dull, dead skin. It helps with hyperpigmentation too.
