Ingredient 101: Fulvic Acid
Dull skin can be caused by many factors, one of which is not cleansing the skin properly.
A buildup of dead cells can make the skin's surface rough, and cause skin to absorb light rather than reflect making skin look dull. Our NEW ingredient, Fulvic Acid is the perfect first step in your skincare regimen to achieve that bright, enviable glow!
