How it works

Sleep Glycolic is the Medik8 approach to at-home glycolic acid. The smallest of the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), glycolic acid can penetrate the deepest into the skin. As a result, glycolic acid can address more stubborn skin concerns such as uneven texture and a lacklustre complexion. High strength at-home glycolic acid products (most commonly daily toners) are readily available and are often directed for regular, everyday use. This has the potential to cause irritation, and an impairment to the skin barrier. That’s why at Medik8 we believe that occasional use of glycolic acid is best – not daily. Leave daily acids to super-gentle PHAs (polyhydroxy acids, found in Press & Glow). Instead, Sleep Glycolic takes an innovative approach to at-home glycolic acid, harnessing the powerful exfoliating effects of glycolic acid in a bi-weekly treatment without the downsides. Glycolic acid is encapsulated in a crystal cyclodextrin ‘shell’ that is slowly broken down upon contact with skin enzymes. The encapsulation gradually delivers the high strength exfoliating acid into the skin overnight to reduce the potential for irritation. With a total 10% free active acid, the glycolic acid is able to easily penetrate into the skin, improving the end results. This is ultimate glycolic power, without the downsides.

Key ingredients & full ingredients list

12% Lactic Acid (total) – A gentle AHA that softly exfoliates the skin, while deeply hydrating. 2% Salicylic Acid – An oil-soluble BHA that is able to penetrate into blocked pores to break down build ups of keratin and sebum, minimising the appearance of plugs and bumpy skin. Glycolic Acid – With the smallest particle size of all the AHAs, glycolic acid is the most powerful. It works to breakdown bonds between dead skin cells so they are easily exfoliated away to reveal fresher, newer skin cells beneath – for visibly brighter and smoother skin. Crystal Encapsulation – A cyclodextrin-based shell which encapsulates the glycolic acid. On the skin this slowly breaks down, delivering the glycolic acid gradually into the skin to reduce irritation. Glycerin – An effective humectant ingredient, glycerin draws moisture to itself like a magnet, leaving skin feeling hydrated, soft and supple. Korean Clover Extract – Native to South Korea, Korean Clover Extract works alongside glycolic acid to support the skin’s natural overnight repair and hydration process. It can help to maintain the natural skin barrier, leaving skin brighter, healthier and in sync. 7% Urea – A part of the skin’s Natural Moisturising Factors, it naturally draws water into the upper layers of the skin for hydration. It is also a powerful keratolytic agent, softening keratin plugs so they are easier to remove leaving the skin soft and smooth. Moringa Butter – A next-generation antioxidant in a rich cream that forms an urban shield on the surface of the skin to neutralise damage caused by environmental pollutants. It is also rich in oleic acid and therefore able to enhance the skin’s natural barrier. Bamboo Microparticles & Natural Pumice – Bamboo microparticles are made up of finely ground spherical polishing beads that can gently buff and polish skin, whereas natural pumice is an exfoliant derived from natural volcanic rock which lightly smooths over skin texture. Squalane – An almost skin-identical lipid, squalane replenishes lost oils for a moisturised, soft and healthy skin surface. Shea Butter – A powerful emollient, it can smooth and soften keratin plugs in the skin and restores the skin’s natural lipid barrier. Multi-Weight Hyaluronic Acid – With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surrounding atmosphere into the skin, leaving the skin both nourished and supple.

Directions

1. For use 2-3 times a week. 2. After cleansing in the evening, smooth a pea-sized amount of Sleep Glycolic onto the face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area. 3. Follow with other serums and night moisturiser. 4. Leave on overnight. 5. Always wear sunscreen the next day after using Sleep Glycolic. A note on layering; as Sleep Glycolic is a direct acid, it should be the first step in your evening skincare routine. Layer all other serums and moisturisers over this.

Featured Story

“The effectiveness of exfoliating acid products depends heavily on two factors; acid concentration and the pH of the formula. A low pH is crucial to activate acids within a cosmetic formula. Every exfoliating acid (AHA or BHA) can exist in an active form (also known as free acid), or an inactive form. Only when an acid is in its active form, will it be able to make its way easily into the skin to have an effect on stubborn skin concerns like hyperpigmentation. In Sleep Glycolic, we have optimised our free, active acid content by lowering our pH to 3.5 – to achieve a true free, active acid value of 10%. This gives us a truly powerful glycolic acid formula. Crystal encapsulation and bi-weekly usage helps us to control this power, reducing irritation from the formula to maintain a healthy skin barrier.” Daniel Isaacs, Director of Research
