Glycolic Acid, also known as hydroxyacetic acid and Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), is a non-toxic chemical exfoliant naturally found in sugar beets, unripe grapes and sugarcane. Glycolic Acid dissolves the uppermost layer of the epidermis (the corneocyte layer) thus revealing fresh, smooth skin.

The exfoliating effect of the AHA acid simultaneously yields increased skin tissue hydration as a result of the new plump dermis’ capacity to bind water. Glycolic Acid improves the lipid barrier function thus promoting healthy skin regeneration and development.
Glycolic Acid’s exceptional propensity for skin penetration counteracts a number of typical skin ailments such as fine lines and wrinkles, irregular skin pigmentation and clogged pores (which can lead to acne eruptions).
Glycolic Acid reverses the damage of photoaging by stimulating collagen and elastin production consequently increasing skin resilience and strength. The accelerated tissue proliferation restructures the dermis and improves overall skin health and agility.
