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.

5.25% Glycolic Acid: Unglues and dissolves dead skin cells.
Kale + Spinach + Parsley: Packed with antioxidants, energizes skin and provides Vitamin A, B, C, E & K.
Hyaluronic Acid: Traps atmospheric moisture to hydrate and plump for smoother, more even skin.

The color and texture of Kale-Lalu-yAHA may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This is a normal occurrence when using naturally-derived ingredients, and it does not impact the efficacy of the formula.

Pair with Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser
When you’re craving: Less oiliness
Why it works: Subtracts excess oil, adds essential hydration.
How to use: Cleanse face first, apply exfoliator with a cotton pad, no rinsing.
Extra tip: Can use on the neck, chest, and underarms as needed.

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.

Step 3: Recycle! If type 1 and type 5 plastics are both recyclable in your area, we recommend leaving the cap on and throwing the whole bottle into the recycling bin. The labels or glue can be recycled too, so no need to remove those.

Materials Used
Cap, gasket: PP [5]
Bottle: 100% PCR PET [1]
Box: FSC paper and soy based inks

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


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.”


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.”


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.“


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.”

    So far so good

    I am thankful to report that I’ve had no negative reactions to this product or the great barrier relief which is a win for me. The gentleness of this exfoliator allows me to have something to go to in between using my stronger exfoliator when my skin is feeling good and like it doesn’t need those larger percentage formulas. Thank you for making something that is low key and effective ✨

    Makes my skin so glowy

    I used the Paula's Choice exfoliant before and as much as I like it this was a total game changer. I don't know if it is because it has the glycolic acid mixed into the formula but this just makes my skin glow on another level. I am glad I finally decided to buy this product after months of debating, so worth your money!

    I wanted to love this product so badly

    I’ve been using GBR and the Matcha Hemp face wash for years and I love them so much. The Makeup Re-Wined is my favorite first step cleanser/makeup remover ever! I used Kale-Lalu-yAHA for about a year, I have super sensitive dry skin and it did not ever irritate my skin which is why I gave it 3 stars. The ingredients of this entire product line sold by Krave are the best! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars, is because I saw no improvement in my skin with this at all. It did not get reduce or get rid of blackheads, acne, scarring/pigmentation, or prevent breakouts. I was about 3/4 through the bottle when I ended up switching to another chemical exfoliant product, and the Krave one just sat in my bathroom cabinet for about 5 months unused. I ended up finishing it eventually because I didn’t want to waste it. I can say Kale-Lalu-yAHA did not do anything to damage my skin at all, but it also did not improve it.
