Title: Beta-carotene and Glycolic Acid for Skin Texture
  • Article

Murad has introduced a skin treatment designed to firm, exfoliate and soften the skin. Complete Reform is said to improve skin texture 61% after one application.  

The treatment is formulated with the company's Glyco Firming Complex, a combination that evens the skin tone while helping to protect elastin. Glycolic acid is included to exfoliate, smoothe and soften the skin, while beta-carotene, a carotenoid and retinol precursor, reportedly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without irritation.
