What is the composition of the ingredients in the 2.5% pH-balanced AHA complex?
Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment contains a 2.5% pH-balanced AHA complex of glycolic and lactic acids for a powerful yet gentle exfoliation. In other words, it’s as strong and effective as 10% glycolic acid, yet gentle enough not to irritate the skin.
What is glycolic acid and how does it benefit the skin?
Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that acts as a chemical peel to increase cell turnover and loosen dead skin cells for smooth, exfoliated skin with fewer fine lines and a more even texture.
What is lactic acid and how does it have a positive effect on the skin?
Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that acts as a chemical peel to tighten skin, even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Are the Skin Care Benefits of Watermelon?
Rich in vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids, watermelon is known to moisturize and soothe. It also contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Where does the color come from?
The formula color is a natural dye derived from false daisy (Eclipta prostrata) extract, Melia Azadirachta leaf extract and Moringa Oleifera seed oil.
Is the scent natural?
The fragrance in our Watermelon Night Treatment is 100% natural and comes from plant-based materials such as fruits and vegetables. We formulate with the minimal amount of fragrance when needed to create a sensual, pleasurable skincare experience. Fragrances always make up less than 0.5% of our formulations, and all fragrances are vegan and free of PCM compounds, acetone, essential oils and more.
IS IT RIGHT FOR MY SKIN?
What skin types is the Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment suitable for?
Watermelon Night Treatment is suitable for all skin types.
Is this suitable for acne prone, oily skin?
Yes! This formula has a light texture that absorbs well into the skin and contains AHA and Niacinamide, which are beneficial for oily and blemish-prone skin types.
Is it non-comedogenic/non-acnegenic?
This formula is derm-tested and non-comedogenic/non-acnegenic, meaning it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts. All ingredients are gentle and safe for all skin types.
Is it suitable for sensitive skin?
Yes! Gentle and moisturizing, Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment contains both niacinamide and watermelon extract to soothe and nourish sensitive skin. We recommend using it 2-3 nights a week and always do a patch test first before applying it all over the face.

HOW TO USE
How do I use this product?
We recommend using the Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment as the last step in your nightly skincare routine! If you prefer a minimal routine, Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment can be used alone or after toners or serums as a hydrating step in place of your traditional moisturizer.
How often can I use this?
To start, due to the strong acids in this formula, we recommend using Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment 2-3 nights per week – and then build up to more frequent use if desired!
Can I use it during the day?
We recommend Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment primarily for nighttime routines! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen in the morning too.
Is it OK/safe to use in a routine with other exfoliants or actives?
When using products with other exfoliants or active ingredients, we always recommend patch testing first and gradually introducing the Watermelon Night Treatment into your routine! The tolerability of several active ingredients is different for everyone. So pay attention to what your unique skin needs.
Can I use this with retinol?
Because Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment contains powerful chemical peels, we do not recommend using it with retinol. You can use these ingredients on alternate nights! For sensitive skin types, be sure to do a patch test before use.
How Do I Properly Store My Watermelon Night Treatment?
Due to the active ingredients in this formula, store at room temperature in a dry, dark place. You can also keep it in the fridge if you decide to have a refreshing, chilled experience!
How is the watermelon sourced in this formula?
The watermelon in this formula is processed in a way that saves energy and water, and utilizes all parts of the fruit, including the rind—that would otherwise go to waste!
What is the recyclability of the packaging?
Our Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment Glass is made from 20% post-consumer recycled glass and is fully recyclable! The card is 100% recyclable and made from FSC-certified paper, free from heavy metals or acids, and printed with vegetable/soy ink.
