A kind yet effective exfoliator that smooths out texture and fades the look of discoloration to reveal healthier, radiant skin. Powered by 5.25% Glycolic Acid, Kale-Lalu-yAHA farewells excess dead skin cells to let skin welcome plant-powered hydration and soothing.

A Brighter, Better Future

Since when did exfoliators become less about balancing skin and more about who has the highest acid %? With high acid levels and minimal nutrients, exfoliants are wreaking havoc on your skin’s barrier and microbiome. That’s why we created Kale-Lalu-yAHA, the gentler answer to those questionable options. It’s formulated with a lower acid level to helpfully nudge skin’s natural renewal process while hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant-rich leafy greens leave the skin better than they found it. The future—and your skin—are looking better already.

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free. Always free of fragrances, essential oils, dyes, and colorants.

The color and texture of Kale-Lalu-yAHA may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This does not impact the efficacy of the formula.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water, Water, Butylene Glycol, Brassica Oleracea Acephala Leaf (Kale) Extract, Glycolic Acid, 1,2-Hexanediol, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Spinacia Oleracea (Spinach) Leaf Extract, Carum Petroselinum (Parsley) Extract, Chlorella Minutissima Extract, Malus Domestica Fruit (Green Apple) Extract, Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Betaine Salicylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Pseudozyma Epicola/Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil/Glucose/Yeast Extract Ferment Filtrate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Bacillus/Folic Acid/Soybean Ferment Extract, Coptis Japonica Root Extract, Malachite Extract, Polysorbate 80, Disodium EDTA

When you’re craving: Less oiliness
Why it works: Subtracts excess oil, adds essential hydration.

Step 1: Clean and separate! Before recycling, make sure the bottle is rinsed and free of product.

Step 2: Investigate! The bottle is made from 100% PCR PET [1], which is completely recyclable. The gasket and cap are made from PP [5]. Not all recycling programs accept PP. We recommend checking with your local recycling to see which materials can be recycled.

Work It

If you don’t like exfoliators, you’re probably thinking “Is it worth it? Can I work it? Put my thing down, flip it and reverse it?” Kale-lalu-yAHA is not your typical exfoliant; it evens out uneven tone + texture while soothing skin to keep irritation at bay. Go for it, Missy.

Smooth Operator

Other exfoliants are so insensitive; they buff away your dead skin then leave you high and dry. But our Kale is in touch with your sensitive side. It exfoliates while soothing skin with Aloe and moisturizing with Vitamin B5. Look at those smooth moves.

Have a Nice Trip

Kale-Lalu-yAHA is formulated at a 3.0–4.0 pH range so whether you experience no tingling or slight tingling, it’s working. Don’t worry, all good acids here so no bad trips.

How to Use Your Exfoliator

Start with a clean, dry face. Soak a cotton pad with a few dabs of product and gently sweep across the face. After fully absorbed, no need to rinse. Follow up with moisturizer and SPF in the mornings. Start slowly and gradually build use to 2–3x per week or as needed. Can be used down the neck and on the body if desired.

Shipping

I am bit disappointed in the shipping. I ordered the product when it was 60% off but the order was lost so they did a refund instead of reshipment with the reason that the old packaging product is no longer in stock. What I was looking for is the content of the product not the packaging since the product formula is the same. I love the product but the way they handle this is a bit disappointing given that I have been using and ordered products from the brand multiple times.

wasn't for me

even with infrequent use it kinda dried out my skin and made it feel really tight, i don't think it's the product's fault but it's definitely mine for trying out a glycolic acid product when my skin doesn't really agree with it

i wish i could rate this higher since i loved the other products but my own personal experience with it was not great

Chucked my Paula's for This

I have quite oily, acne-prone skin so exfoliating is important for me, but also many didn't work. I tried most of the priciest options and was using the well-know product from PC until I found this. This is gentle yet effective with no harsh smells or sticky residue. I use 2-3x a week, always follow it with Barrier Relief and my skin is smooth, clear and tight. Will use forever!

Skincare game changer!

This liquid exfoliant is a holy grail ever since I tried it. I find myself so sad when I’m nearing the end of the bottle (which lasts a good while). I have sensitive skin and many other products aggravate my skin and make it bright red, but not this one. I use this after cleansing and I have noticed an enormous difference in my skin. It not only exfoliates and locks in moisture, but also has really reduced fine lines and has prevented and diminished breakouts when I see them coming. I use this along with the skin barrier serum and can’t say enough good things! I’m on my third repurchase.
