About Baby Steps Acid Treatment
Baby steps got its name for being the most gentle, introduction to chemical exfoliation. But gentle doesn’t mean you have to compromise on efficacy.
This acid booster was designed to give you the freedom to integrate as you need it into your routine. Dilute with your hydrating serum or moisturizer for a nightly treatment or use once a week as a wash-off mask. Baby steps at your service!
Directions: For a daily treatment – Add one drop and mix with your favorite serum. For a weekly potent mask – After cleansing, apply a thin layer to dry skin and wash off after 10 minutes. Avoid eye contact.
Baby Steps is tinted pink using a natural colorant derived from sweet potatoes. To minimize irritation, this product is completely fragrance and essential oils free.
Why It’s Special
Both gluconolactone and lactic acid's larger molecular structure makes this the least irritating chemical exfoliant that still brings exfoliating benefits.

Gentle but EFFECTIVE
I'm always very hesitant to try any chemical exfoliant because many times they are too harsh for my sensitive skin, but since this product contains mostly PHAs I gave it a try. The first night I tried it I mixed a drop with my moisturizer and immediately felt some tingling and noticed some redness. I haven't used a chemical exfoliant in a long time so I was expecting it to be a little uncomfortable.
Extremely glad I tried it out because the next morning, my skin was extremely soft with improved texture, even some red patches had faded! I've used it a few times since and my skin is becoming used to it so it's no longer uncomfortable to apply, and results continue to get better! Making this a permanent 2-3x weekly step to my skincare routine!3 found this helpful.brenda r. Apr 17, 2020
Effective and versatile.
I love Retinoids, glycolics, AHA’s etc. Have used them 30+yrs & this product stands out- it is mild but the fact I can mix it in with serums/ oils / creams better than most products in the category. I prefer to choose how or with which products I use my treatments, so this is perfect for my lifestyle. I only hope they launch a stronger version as well.2 found this helpful.
