Mayella ® AHA Exfoliating Whip - Product Description
Mayella ® AHA Exfoliating Whip
Enhanced with the active benefits of aromatherapy pure essential oils, Mayella ® AHA Exfoliating Whip has been formulated containing certified organic and bio-active botanicals. A vegan, plantbased daily exfoliate has a dual exfoliating action. 100% Free from plastic micro beads and nano particles. Ideal and suitable for all skin types, women, men and teens.
The physical action of Jojoba beads being massaged over the skin’s surface is to remove any build up of dead skin cells, stimulate scar tissue and to lift dirt and debris from blocked pores. The gentle massage encourages circulation and lymphatic flow to tired, dull skin which is enhanced by the uplifting and clearing aromatherapy benefits of pure jasmine and bergamot essential oils.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring acids, molecules that originate from various natural sources such as sugar cane (glycolic acid), apples (malic acid) and milk (lactic acid). The infamous Egyptian Queen Cleopatra used to bath in milk to maintain her youth and beauty, the lactic acids in the milk bath worked to hydrate her skin and refine away rough, dry and dead cells. A wise woman was Cleopatra, she certainly knew the secret to maintaining smooth radiant skin. We have captured this skin enhancing experience within our Mayella ® exfoliating serum & whip.
In a specific layer of the epidermis our skin cells secrete a mixture of substances. Lipids (oils), cholesterol, free saturated fatty acids and ceramides (natural lipids or fats in the skin helping to maintain moisture amongst other things) all mix into a glue like form serving to hold the maturing cells together. Thereby making the epidermis an effective barrier resistant against external and foreign elements. The integrity of this barrier is reflective of the health and immunity of our skin.
A healthy skin has an active program of certain enzymes breaking down this cohesion between the cells once they are fully mature in order for these cells to release from the skin’s surface. Our cells are “born” and progress from base layer to the surface over an average period of 4–6 weeks for adults. AHA’s are particularly perfect in the way they serve the skin to support the release of fully mature or dead skin cells from the surface by breaking down this glue and releasing the dried up and dead “horny” cells. We feel these sometimes as dry scaly patches. A build up of dead skin cells and old or rancid oils, will prevent our skin from absorbing nourishing serums and lotions effectively. One of the key secrets to maintaining youthful, glowing skin is to encourage new cell growth and healthy cell turn over through exfoliation.
AHAs have been widely researched as to their benefits and have been one of the most exciting advances in skin care. While encouraging the release of dead, dry skin cells on the surface layers is supportive of a smooth radiant skin, the deeper dermal effects of AHAs have been shown to produce increased production of collagen and in levels of mucopolysaccharides which translates as increased moisture and hydration in the skin. This translates as a dewy, hydrated appearance.
