Fruit Acid Complex 

Fruit Acid Complex is a concentrated blend of five botanical extracts: bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange, and lemon. These extracts contain several naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids. Alpha hydroxy acids have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal.

 

According to the manufacturer: At a 10% dilution, this product produced a 34% in cell renewal when compared to the untreated control side. Accordingly, there was a 143% percent increase in the number of squames generated. Evaluated at 4% in a commercial cream, this product increased cell turnover by 20% relative to the control formulation.

While the manufacturer recommends a use level between 5 - 15%, we advise less experienced formulators to use this product at the lower level. All products made with AHAs should be tested using a pH meter (not pH paper) to ensure products at final formulation have a pH of at least 4.0.

Because products formulated with AHAs can increase sun sensitivity, the FDA requires specific labeling of products which contain AHAs and do not include sunscreens. This information and much more is contained in the FDA document USFDA on Labeling for Topically Applied Cosmetics Containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids as Ingredients. The link to this FDA document is also readily accessible in our Reference Room above (please consider it required reading).

According to the manufacturer, the sugars in this product are produced without the use of bone char and it is therefore a VEGAN product.

There has been a breakdown of one of the major ferries that service Orcas Island. The necessary repairs have meant that our Ferry Service is operating on an Emergency Schedule as of Monday, July 17th. This means that our inbound and outbound shipping are affected. The delays the ferry service is experiencing are impacting UPS and the US Post Office shipping, resulting in 1 day additional transit times on all shipments. These service delays are beyond the control of UPS or the Post Office and they will not honor any guarantees re late delivery as a result of this breakdown. We are doing our best to ship your orders as quickly as they are received to insure the least disruption possible. We appreciate your understanding!

Jen, I have been wanting to say thank you in a very special way for a long time. I have been trying to switch as much of my business over to your shop as possible. Everyone talks about your fabulous customer service. But what I am most impressed about it how smart you are and the wide variety or products you have available for the small business, The quality of research you have posted on your site is not available anywhere else. Whenever I have a very difficult formulating problem to solve I come to your site. None of my other suppliers (many of whom I spend 100's of dollar a month with) can answer even simple questions. You have gotten back to me within minutes with very educated answers and suggestions. I feel like you have given me tools, resources, and base ingredients to really blossom. I am so grateful.
tiffany, (performancecolors)

Fantastic service and products and fast delivery to Australia. Love this company. Will be using for my skincare products over and over.
julie witkowski, (Humane Beauty Pty Ltd)
