Alpha-H Skincare

Alpha-H is an Australian skincare brand now sold worldwide. Michelle Doherty joined Alpha-H 15 years ago after being so impressed by the two-step Balancing Cleanser and Balancing Moisturiser. Having long-suffered with skin problems, Michelle experienced astounding effects with Alpha-H. Since then, Michelle’s mission has been to create the very best skin care products, not only just for a season or a specific reason but for a lifetime.

Michelle works closely with her team of cosmetic scientists, researching ingredients and developing powerful formulations. Endorsed by thousands of therapists worldwide, Alpha-H believes that exfoliation followed by nutrition, hydration and fortification of the skin are necessary to maintain a clear, healthy and firm complexion.  

Alpha-H products have been designed to treat and visibly improve a wide number of skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage, clogged pores and blemishes, acne and acne scarring, Dermatitis, Eczema and Psoriasis or tired, lifeless skin. 

Alpha-H skincare products are primarily made up of ‘Glycolic Acid’ and Alpha Hydroxyl Acid’s, which naturally occur in Sugar Cane. Glycolic Acids work by dissolving the ionic bonds that hold the dead skin cells together. The dead skin cells can then gently be removed, allowing new healthy cells to the surface. By combining Glycolic Acid with a unique blend of other effective natural ingredients such as Green Tea extract, Vitamin E, Ginseng, Liquorice, Hibiscus flower extract and Jojoba granules, Alpha-H has mastered the art of treating a wide range of beauty concerns.

Alpha-H has given the beauty industry not one but several “cult” classics:  Liquid Gold, an innovative resurfacing and firming lotion; Rejuvenation Cream, an award-winning nourishing, firming cream loaded with minerals, anti-oxidants and collagen-boosting Vitamin C; and the 15% Hydrating and Glycolic Mask, a fundamental peeling treatment which brings new cells to the surface of the skin. Alpha-H is now considered a leader in corrective and preventative skincare globally.

The serum effectively plumps and firms the skin from within whilst leaving it hydrated and radiant. This is not a “quick fix”, but a safe, painless and effective way to keep your skin looking younger and healthier for longer. To be used 3 nights a week before moisturiser.
