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.

Questionable

A mild exfoliant. I use this every so often when my skin starts to look dull, but The Ordinary AHA mask blows this out of the water. I say just use toner AM/PM and use AHA mask once a week or so, because this doesn't really fit neatly into any step of a traditional routine and it's very awkward to use, especially if you want to tone or use essence at some point during your routine

So far so good!

I have been using this about twice a week for a couple of weeks. Not long enough to see drastic results but so far I REALLY like it! My face feels smooth and soft and it's not irritating at all. I have normal to dry skin and I can definitely see it softening some of my dryness and texture. I'm excited to make this a full time staple in my routine and see the full benefits of this with continued use. I also skip the cotton round and apply this directly into my palm and onto skin. I feel like there is no waste this way as the rounds or cloth can soak some of the product up. And as always it's cruelty free & vegan which are both nonnegotiable for me!
