Glycolic Acid Activator
Glycolic Acid Activator exfoliates the complexion to promote a visibly brighter tone.
Perfect Product Pair
Crystal Retinal is the perfect choice of vitamin A to use with Balance Moisturiser & Glycolic Acid Activator to help minimise the appearance of blemishes; as retinal is a unique form of vitamin A that is directly antibacterial on the skin.
How It Works
Blemishes can be caused by changes in the skin’s microbiome, the protective bacteria that lives on the skin’s surface. Balance Moisturiser helps to support the microbiome function, for healthy-looking skin.
Prebiotics and postbiotics feed the good bacteria living on the surface of the skin to encourage a healthy flora, helping to balance and visibly restore a long-lasting clear complexion.
Cinnamon extract works in synergy with the pre and postbiotics to reduce levels of blemish-causing bacteria, such as P. acnes.
Meanwhile, beta-Glucan works to comfort the skin, while niacinamide soothes the appearance of redness.
Glycolic Acid Activator, our AHA surface perfector, is used to supercharge the power of Balance Moisturiser by aiding its absorption into the skin.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply Balance Moisturiser evenly across the face, neck and décolletage.
Optional: For boosted performance and exfoliation, use Glycolic Acid Activator 2-3 times a week. After cleansing in the evening, apply 4-6 drops to the face, neck and décolletage. Once dry, apply Balance Moisturiser. Apply products separately, do not mix Glycolic Acid Activator and Balance Moisturiser directly.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

Maintaining skin balance through enhancing good bacteria and limiting the bad, pre and postbiotics promote a visibly healthy, balanced complexion.

A natural extract from oats, beta-Glucan provides immediate comfort to inflamed skin.
A natural antibacterial, cinnamon extract helps to limit blemish-causing bacteria, while also supporting balanced oil production within the skin.
A powerful AHA, glycolic acid helps to visibly resurface and exfoliate the outermost layers of skin, to leave a visibly brighter and clearer complexion.Full Ingredients

The Science Behind
The skin’s health is heavily dependent on its microbiome, the billions of invisible microorganisms which live on its surface. Changes in pH, hydration and environment can all affect the microbiome balance. Uneven natural flora can contribute to many skin conditions, such as dry, flaky skin and the formation of blemishes. Pre and postbiotics are used in Balance Moisturiser to support a balanced skin microbiome. Postbiotics are live bacteria, which intermix with the natural microbiome and alter its composition. They can change the pH of skin to favour the growth of good bacteria, and produce antimicrobials to help protect the skin. Prebiotics are based on carbohydrates and act as food for the growth of postbiotics at the expense of the skin’s bad bacteria. Pre and postbiotics work synergistically to help the skin regain its natural balance.
