How often should I use Thousand Petals?
We recommend using Thousand Petals 1-2 times a week. But we believe every skin has unique needs, so if your skin is easily sensitized, start off with a weekly treatment before increasing your frequency of use. And if your skin is resilient to acid treatments, you can step it up to 3 times a week. But we always prioritize a healthy skin barrier over excessive exfoliation.
There is no tingling or burning sensation - is Thousand Petals working?
The superstar ingredient in Thousand Petals is pyruvic acid derived from the chalices of the roselle flower. This gentle acid is highly regarded for its superior exfoliating properties, with minimal irritation or redness. This little jar of creamy, velvety mousse is working hard for your skin, even though you might not feel any tingling or burning sensation. That was exactly how it was formulated to be.
I have sensitive skin - should I use Thousand Petals?
Thousand Petals is formulated with pyruvic acid, and there are clinical studies showing pyruvic acid to be as effective as lactic acid – one of the gentlest form of acids for sensitive skin. But if you are prone to reaction, do a small patch test before diving right in.
How would you describe the scent of Thousand Petals?
The alluring scent of Neroli is the only note you will pick up in Thousand Petals. This floral scent is complex, mysterious and grounding, with a hint of deep, ripe citrus. We wanted this beautiful scent to shine on its own, without pairing it with anything else.
Do you have tips on other ways to use Thousand Petals?
Combine 2-3 pumps of Green Nectar with one scoop of Thousand Petals to create a creamy exfoliating cleanser. This beautiful combination gives you a deep cleanse and helps decongest pores, but still leaves your skin hydrated and protected.
