Exfoliating Antioxidant Gel | $269.00 / 50 ml
Product description Tangible results are at the heart of every BABOR formula. The DOCTOR BABOR RESURFACE Exfoliating Antioxidant Gel, the successor to the DOCTOR BABOR Refine AHA 10+10 Peeling Gel, improves the skin structure with its 10% AHA (glycolic, citric, lactic, tartaric, and malic acid) and restores radiance to dull skin. Ideally, the intensive peeling should be applied overnight. It combines the regenerating power of perfectly balanced fruit acids with the antioxidant and protective potential of highly effective active ingredients to combat free radicals. Old skin flakes are effectively removed, while the smooth, radiant skin is deeply moisturized and protected against premature skin aging. The end result is more balanced skin with refined pores for long-lasting beauty. Enriched with the exclusive DOCTOR BABOR BIOGEN PLANT EXTRACT, the pinnacle of BABOR research, the skin’s natural processes are stimulated, thus promoting the skin’s youthful agility.
100% vegan and free of silicones, parabens, mineral oils, PEGs, microplastics, and other unnecessary ingredients, the Exfoliating Antioxidant Gel was developed and perfected by BABOR experts in the company’s laboratories in Aachen, Germany, based on BABOR’s ambitious “clean” formula policies. Made in Germany is a seal of quality that stands for this product and the entire company.
Main active ingredients 10% AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) packs a punch with the highly concentrated power of various acids and promotes a smoother and more balanced skin texture.
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) with a potent exfoliating effect that removes dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin, promoting the skin’s natural regeneration processes for a smoother and more radiant complexion. It also supports cell renewal, which can improve the skin tone and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation. At the same time, glycolic acid helps balance skin imperfections and refine enlarged pores for an overall more even complexion.
The blend of tartaric, malic, and citric acid ensures gentle exfoliation. It removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface and promotes skin regeneration for a smoother complexion. At the same time, the skin is moisturized to ensure supple skin. Citric acid is a gentle antioxidant. It can help protect the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals by neutralizing them. It also contains enzymatically bio-liquefied grape skin and wheat bran, which allows the secondary plant substances to unfold their full effect. This way, they revitalize the skin and make it more resilient.
Like glycolic and citric acid, lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), but with a gentler exfoliating effect. Due to its larger molecular size, lactic acid penetrates the skin more slowly and therefore provides milder exfoliation. The moisturizing properties boost the suppleness of the skin. At the same time, it can stimulate collagen production, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles and makes the skin look firmer and more youthful.
It also contains salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid that acts as a chemical peeling agent, dissolving dead skin cells and excess sebum. Due to the lipophilic mode of action, it can unclog pores and thus reduce the appearance of blackheads and enlarged pores.
The effect is supported by astaxanthin, which is a chemical substance that belongs to the carotenoids. It is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. In addition to being responsible for the luminous color of the gel, it strengthens the skin’s natural resistance against oxidative stress. By neutralizing free radicals, it also reduces damage caused by excessive UV radiation. Besides that, it counteracts age spots and visibly improves the complexion. Astaxanthin also exerts a triple effect on the skin’s natural collagen. It protects existing collagen, inhibits the breakdown triggered by enzymes, and stimulates the skin’s natural collagen synthesis. Together, these effects ensure a smoother complexion.
Betaine is an amino acid derivative and is obtained from sugar beets. The derivative attracts moisture and can store it in the skin. At the same time, it helps keep the skin barrier intact and protect the skin from external irritants by maintaining an optimized moisture level.
L-arginine is an amino acid that serves as a building block for proteins in the skin. It plays a key role in the regeneration and repair of skin tissue. The active ingredient helps promote regeneration and stimulate collagen production, which can enhance skin elasticity and firmness.
Thiotaine is an antioxidant that protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can be caused by environmental stress factors such as UV radiation and pollution and lead to premature skin aging. By neutralizing the skin from free radicals and protecting it from oxidative stress, thiotaine can prevent wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of premature skin aging. The skin barrier is reinforced, resulting in more resilient skin.
Secondary active ingredients BIOGEN PLANT EXTRACT and Vitamin E also protect the skin against harmful environmental influences. The exquisite plant extract is derived from 8 highly potent plants of different genera. It has been researched and continuously improved for 6 decades, making it a true masterpiece of modern cosmetic research. The synergy of secondary plant substances, phenols, flavonoids, and other active ingredients revitalizes the skin by protecting it from free radicals and oxidative stress. The skin’s natural processes are improved, while the omnipotent essences unfold a positive effect on the skin microbiome. With each application, the skin is stimulated to produce a more revitalized, strengthened, and balanced complexion. Effect The Exfoliating Antioxidant Gel combines the latest generation of active fruit acids. Due to their molecular structure and size, the individual fruit acids promote exfoliation of the skin and thus stimulate extensive skin smoothing within a very short time. The regenerative and protective active ingredients consisting of astaxanthin, betaine, L-arginine, and antioxidant thiotaine work together to protect the smooth skin from free radicals. This ensures that the skin stays beautiful for a very long time. Benefit Elaborate anti-aging peeling designed to make dull skin glow again. Effective removal of dead skin cells through the use of effective fruit acids (glycolic, citric, lactic, tartaric, malic acid) help improve the skin’s texture for a smoother, more balanced complexion. How To Use Apply 1–2 times a week with your fingers or a brush to cleansed skin on the face, neck, and décolleté. Do not apply to the area around the eyes! Wash hands after immediately after use.
