Alpha-Hydroxy Fruit Acid Toners – Why Are They So Vital?

Contrary to popular advertising myths, the first available natural alpha-hydroxy fruit acid preparations in the world, were conceived, formulated and manufactured by the Gaia Research Institute, years before their current worldwide popularity.

Since then many have followed our lead as science validated the amazing ability of properly used fruit acids to turn back the years in terms of visible aging. Today we still lead the field with genuine fruit acid preparations rather than the harsh cheap mimics (usually sugar-cane derived glycolic acid) used by most other manufacturers.

Our genuine Alpha Hydroxy Fruit Acid Toners deep cleanse the skin, including the portals of the pores, via natural herbal organic acids and essential oil solvents, which dissolve contaminated, oxidised and rancid sebum not reached by conventional cleansers.

AHA and botanical astringents, on constricting the pores, cause dissolved spent wastes to ooze to the surface and be easily removed by wiping with cotton wool.

Natural fruit acids in our bodies:

Centuries ago, humans were primarily fruit eaters and so evolved an exquisite protective acid mantle of natural fruit acids brought to the skin during perspiration. Now, our specially extracted alpha-hydroxy fruit acids can provide leading-edge visible age control that optimise the many natural functions of the skin. Fruit acids are important because:

  • significantly improve texture and appearance within 4-8 weeks of daily use, without the risk of sensitisation or skin damage
  • redefine texture and visibly smooth out and retard development of fine wrinkles and reduce the severity of deeper wrinkles
  • naturally stimulate, via polypeptide signalling, the production of collagen and elastin.
  • It is important to use a moisturizer with a slight sunscreen for day use such as Bio Nutricell (green or gold); Day Defence cream; Cell Regenerating cream as the skin is rendered slightly more vulnerable to UV light.

Chemical peels can leave disastrous permanent blemishes.

Anti-Irritant ingredient in our Toners:

We have also led the entire field with the incorporation of green tea extracts, which are highly specific anti-irritants against possible inflammation. If not formulated correctly, most manufacturers reduce their AHA concentrations to often practically useless levels.

Further benefits of topically applied green tea extracts include very powerful antioxidant properties, which retard the aging process as well as other constituents that actively protect against all serious forms of skin cancer.

All our AHA Toners contain:

  • Purified rainwater
  • Distillate of witch hazel astringent
  • Seaweed extract (kelp) – partly for cell-optimising trace minerals
  • Comfrey extract – for chlorophyll and healthy cell-proliferating allantoin
  • Green tea extract – for anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant polyphenols
  • Chlorophyll, astringents and organic Germanium
  • Stinging nettle extract – for gallic acid
  • Organic silica and astringents
  • Centella extract – partly for chlorophyll (immune-stimulating & skin-healing)
  • Kombucha (green tea symbiont) extract (selenium) – partly for hyaluronic acid and beta-glucan polysaccharides which are rare anti-aging bio-actives normally only obtainable from animal placenta
  • Expressed oil of lemon as natural solvent
  • Vitamin C as cell-protectant
  • Thymol as antiseptic and
  • Three genuine alpha-hydroxy fruit acids as astringents, preservatives and more specifically for their collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid stimulating. Each toner type has its own unique extras

The ingredients listed above were scientifically selected following more than a decade of research for specific skin enhancing properties additional to basic nutritive and abovementioned co-constituents and properties, having valuable additional empirical bio-activities far too numerous to mention here.

Note: Genuine Fruit Acids cannot thin the skin as reported for other Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Only if spent surface cells are physically exfoliated, can skin become slightly more vulnerable to solar damage. Being fruit-eating animals by design, we are biologically constituted to eat fruit and perspire its acids.
