What does the product description say?
"Ideal for sensitive skin types, the NIOD Non-Acid Acid Precursor 15% is an alternative treatment to acid-based epidermal resurfacing, harnessing bio-derivatives and amino isolates to effectively refine the surface layer without causing redness or inflammation commonly associated with AHA/BHA acids."
WIMJ summary for exfoliation

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

This product contains hexanoyl dipeptide-3 norleucine acetate, myristoyl nonapeptide-3. These ingredients might be able to help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness, but there is not enough evidence that it actually works.

This product contains antioxidants (yeast extract) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
