Additional Information

Why it works

High strength. Even higher performance. A favorite amongst long-time NEOSTRATA customers, this highly potent, silky cream is formulated to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and help regenerate and revitalize skin damaged from cumulative UV exposure while helping to prevent future damage. Repeated use will leave your skin smoothly textured and healthier-looking.

18% Glycolic Acid: known to help even skin tone, is a natural component of sugar cane that normalizes the skin’s exfoliation process, refining the appearance of pore size and smoothing the look of fine lines and wrinkles as it retexturizes skin. Glycolic Acid is known to be the workhorse of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family for those looking to really retexture and refine their skin’s surface.

Lactobionic Acid: part of the Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) family and is derived from natural sugars. It helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, discoloration, enlarged pores and roughness through gentle exfoliation, while also attracting moisture for added hydration and comfort.

Vitamin E: Antioxidant protection helps fight future damage.

High Potency Cream is our step-up AHA exfoliator and hydrator in one. This high strength treatment is ideal for anyone who is already an experienced Glycolic Acid user, looking to take their AHA regimen to the next level. If you are brand new to Glycolic Acid, we recommend Resurface Glycolic Renewal Serum as the perfect starter AHA treatment. Once Glycolic Renewal Serum is well tolerated, consider graduating your evening regimen up to High Potency Cream.

Appropriate for dry, normal and oily skin types. (Not recommended for sensitive skin types!)
