NO.1 mandelic acid renewal solution

Overcome 8 common skin problems; restore clean and supple look in 7 days*

Formulas customized for three skin types

DR.WU's Upgraded Mandelik Daily Renewal Serum 6% and 18%

Now Available in Red

Asian women generally prefer the kind of smoothened skin look produced by camera filters, which makes widened pore, acne, pimple, acne scar, uneven tone, darkening, oiliness, and thickened stratum corneum the eight most common defects that consumers seek cosmetic treatments for, irrespective of their skin type. In fact, these eight skin defects are primarily attributed to a deficiency in the skin's ability to renew old skin cells, and according to Dr. Ying-Chun Wu, reputable dermatologist in Asia, mandelic acid is suitable for all skin types. It helps regulate renewal of old skin cells and bring healthy skin to the surface, thereby ridding skin defects from the root.

In an attempt to resolve the 8 common defects for people of all skin types, DR.WU has made changes to its Mandelik Renewal Serum collection in 2022, expanding product variants from 2 to 3. A new "Mandelik Daily Renewal Serum 6%" has been introduced for people who are prone to redness, have irritable skin, or are new to the concept of skin renewal; for people with combination/oily skin and have previous experience with skin renewal, the all-time classic "Mandelik Intensive Renewal Serum 18%" remains and is available in red bottle in limited quantity; lastly, "Mandelik Daily Renewal Serum 8%" continues to be available for people with normal, dry, or sensitive skin, and those looking to remove old skin cells with mandelic acid on a daily basis. To make products more usable, DR.WU will also be launching "Somsajang Cotton Rounds" for the first time. These cotton pads feature a double-sided design that allows it to be used for toner masking and applying Mandelik serums, which complements the skin renewal process.  

Mandelic acid - the most sought-after over-counter skin renewal solution

Skin problems are not exclusive to oily skin, as people with dry skin and sensitive skin are also prone to pimples, old cell buildup, and dullness among other issues. For those with sensitive skin, aggressive facial treatments and peel-off masks may actually do more harm than good. Mandelic acid, a large-molecule lipophilic citric acid, is more suitable in this situation because it delivers prominent results and does not irritate or cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, PIH, like other citric acids. Dermatologists have been using mandelic acid for skin renewal for over 10 years, and it remains a popular treatment program among aesthetic clinics to date.

Mandelic acid offers 5 major skincare benefits: 1. Regulates skin renewal - it removes excess old cells and promotes renewal of old skin cells; 2. Improves pigmentation - by removing old skin cells, it speeds up the removal of dark pigment buildup in the stratum corneum, giving the skin a brighter and more even glow; 3. Cleanses and shrinks pores - due to its fat-soluble nature, the acid mixes with lipids and travels deep into pores to dissolve acne and clear blockage; 4. Reduces acnegenic factors - the acid reduces sebum secretion and inhibits propionibacterium acnes**** to improve pimples; and 5. Tightens skin - by stimulating renewal of old skin cells, cells in the stratum corneum can be aligned properly to give the skin a more tightened appearance.   

The nature of mandelic acid and its effectiveness at regulating renewal of old skin cells were the main reasons that led to the introduction of DR.WU's first Mandelik serum back in 2011, which opened Asian consumers' minds to skin renewal procedures that can be performed at home. Over the last 10 years, DR.WU's Mandelik collection not only led the sales chart in market share, but also won a total of 21 cosmetic awards**. The Mandelik collection went on to win "Urcosme" and "Watsons HWB Awards - Best sales in category" in 2021, which further reinforces its dominant position as a home-based skin renewal solution.

Mandelic acid – suitable and gentle to all skin types

Ying-Chin Wu, reputable dermatologist in Asia, said: "Mandelic acid has great skin-affinity and works fast at renewing old, dead skin cells. Its large molecular size also  allows slower absorption compared to glycolic acid, which makes it less likely to irritate skin and is more gentle compared to other citric acids. The pH of an acid is more important than concentration as far as skincare is concerned. Skin renewal program supervised by professional in an aesthetics clinic typically uses acid that has a pH of less than 3, but for home application, a pH between 3.5 and 4 is considered ideal as it achieves the purpose while being gentle on the skin. A pH of 5.5 is too similar to the skin to serve any renewal purpose."

Concentration affects the depth at which mandelic acid works into the skin. The stratum corneum normally consists of 10 to 20 layers, and is thinner in people with sensitive or dry skin and thicker in people with oily and acne-prone skin. Males can even have 20 to 25 layers. Out the three different concentrations of Mandelik serums, the 6% is suitable for people with dry/sensitive skin and thinner stratum corneum; the 8% is useful for correcting dull skin and spots; and the 18% is ideal for in-depth renewal of oily skin and those with thicker stratum corneum. 

Targeting specific skin types with 6%, 8%, and 18% serums

DR.WU was the first brand to introduce mandelic acid into home-based skin renewal in Asia; all of its products are developed by medical specialists to be highly effective yet less irritating on the skin. All three variants of Mandelik serum are made with mandelic acids sourced from world's best pharmaceutical companies with pH kept within the range of 3.5-3.8 where it is effective yet gentle on the skin. These solutions also have hydration and repair factors added to strengthen the protective barrier and relieve skin discomfort caused by dryness. Products contain no alcohol or synthetic fragrance, and are gentle to the skin without irritation, making them ideal for sensitive skin.

Meanwhile, the presence of desert plant extract and saccharide isomerate helps hydrate and relieve skin irritation, and the solution has been tested by IDEA Clinic in France to be mild, non-irritative, non-allergenic, and safe for daily use even for sensitive skin. 

Mandelik Intensive Renewal Serum 18% - classic formula in red bottle

This all-time favorite formula is suitable for normal, combination, and oily skin types, as well as people with higher tolerance for irritations. Through many years of research, Dr. Ying-Chun Wu discovered that mandelic acid is best absorbed by the skin at 18% concentration, which is why the 18% solution remains to this day since it was first introduced in 2011. The solution penetrates deep into the stratum corneum, and has been tested to achieve 27% acne reduction in 7 days, 22% pore shrinkage in 7 days, and 6.7% pimple removal overnight*. Furthermore, the addition of macromolecule hyaluronic acid and β-glucan helps replenish moisture and relieve skin discomfort during the process. The serum is now available in limited-edition red bottle, making it a grand and elegant addition to the dressing table. The translucent bottle also provides better indication of the remaining volume.    

DR.WU Somsajang Cotton Rounds

To make Mandelik Renewal Serums more usable, DR.WU will be launching "Somsajang Cotton Rounds" in July. These are water knit, double-sided cotton pads made of 100% natural cotton sourced from Italy. The smooth side is soft and offers good affinity with the skin, whereas the contour side is useful for removing old skin cells. The two sides are joined via water knit to avoid the use of chemical adhesives, and the product is entirely free of formalin and fluorescent brightening agents to eliminate the risk of irritation.

There are many uses of Somsajang Cotton Rounds, and DR.WU recommends using them in conjunction with Mandelik Renewal Serum and Mandelik Pore Refining Essence. Method #1 - When performing acid skin renewal at home, try wetting a cotton pad with few drops of the serum and apply to the face or body part to keep to the hands clean, or try wetting the cotton round with serum and rub on areas that have higher buildup of old skin cells, such as the T-zone and elbow, to speed up the skin renewal process. Method #2 - Wet the contour side of the cotton round with Mandelik Pore Refining Essence and draw circles lightly on the face, next, wet the smooth side of the cotton pad with the Refining Essence and gently pat onto the face for absorption; this approach achieves physical and chemical removal of old skin cells at the same time. Alternatively, wet the smooth side of the cotton pad with the Refining Essence and put it on the area of defect for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
