Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is the smallest α-hydroxy acid (AHA). Glycolic Acid helps gently slough or exfoliate the skin’s dead cells layer, which manifests fine lines and uneven skin tones. When the dead cell layers of the stratum corneum (the skins outer most layer) are removed through gently exfoliation and moisturization, newer fresher skin is revealed. With continued use the appearance of fine lines seem to fade and clearer more supple skin is revealed. Glycolic Acid acts as a high potency moisturizer by bringing water molecules from the environment into the skin, and by pulling water molecules from the lower levels of the skin to the dryer, upper layers of the skin.
