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.

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.

Exhibits A Through You

Kyle

Skin Concern: acne, aging, dark spots

Age: 25-34

“Kale-Lalu-yAHA is my favorite chemical exfoliant because it's so gentle. I like to describe this as a juice cleanse for your face. It has the superfoods and green leafy extracts in it that give it some wonderful antioxidant properties. After I use it, my skin is just ready to go, and it feels really soft, smooth, and wonderful.”

Ally

Skin Concern: dullness, pores

Age: 18-24

“I really love Kale-Lalu-yAHA because this is meant for all skin types. It's packed with vitamins and nutrients to really give you that ultimate glow and healthy skin that you're really looking for. I love that I can pair this up with one of my other favorite products--Oat So Simple Water Cream--and how both of these together can give me that skin-like, healthy finish.”

Zariah

Skin Concern: acne, uneven texture

Age: 18-24

“Kale-Lalu-yAHA is one of my favorite products to gently exfoliate. I use it at least three times a week, usually after the Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser and before I moisturize. It's like a refreshing green juice for your face. I love how it helps with whiteheads, texture, and even pigmentation left behind by acne. It gives me a glow every single morning after I use it.“

Esther

Skin Concern: acne, dark spots, dryness

Age: 18-24

“I have very dry skin and I suffer from texture on my cheeks and forehead. My sister used the product on me and immediately I felt a difference in my skin--it became glowy. And what I love about it is that it's super gentle... I use the Kale-Lalu-yAHA exfoliator once a night. I follow up with a moisturizer and I'm good to go.”

    Two Thumbs Up

    New to the toner AHA/BHA/PHA world, I thought this would be a good starter. It's gentle enough that it doesn't strip or damage your skin but still has great active ingredients. I purchased as a part of the snack pack trial sizes and this is definitely one I will be repurchasing.

    Really refreshing

    I absolutely love this product, although it can be a little harsh on my dry skin : I use it two times a week because of that.
