Q. Why does New Logic use Glycolic Acid?
A. Glycolic acid is a gentle exfoliant, that removes dead skin cells off the surface, leaving bright, fresh new skin and helping to reduce blocked pores. This helps to prevent spots and breakouts.
In addition to reducing acne, glycolic acid has been shown to improve skin tone, skin texture and reduce the appearance of acne scars and sun damage spots (hyperpigmentation).
Q. What is Fibraspect300™ and why do you use it?
A. New Logic employs patent pending ingredient, Fibraspect300™, a protein-based technology, that advances healing by improving topical ingredient delivery. This innovative ingredient creates a tailored release mechanism and allows active ingredients to remain on the skin for longer, keeping them where they are needed.
Key benefits of Fibraspect300™ in topical formulations:
- Longer times between reapplication
- Active ingredients stay where they are needed
- Enhances hydration by sealing moisture in the skin
Q. Why do you recommend patch testing and how do I patch test?
A. Patch testing is recommended when using a new product to see if it is suitable for your skin type and to check that you will not experience an allergic reaction or irritation from the product.
A common place to patch test for potential allergic reaction or irritation is either behind the ear, or where ever your skin is most sensitive.
Place a small amount of the product on the area (big enough for you to notice a difference should a reaction occur, but small enough for it not to bother you too much should this happen).
Leave the product on the area for at least 24 hours and watch for any sign of skin reaction ie: irritation, redness, itching, swelling, blistering, weeping, crusting, rash, etc.
More sensitive people may want to do this process for 2 -3 days before applying the product over a large area.
