Glycolic acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that is commonly used in skincare products.
It is derived from sugarcane and is known for its exfoliating properties.
Glycolic acid works by breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, allowing them to be easily removed.
This process can help to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone.
Glycolic acid is also used in chemical peels, which are cosmetic treatments that can improve the appearance of skin by removing the outermost layers of dead skin cells.
In addition to its exfoliating properties, glycolic acid also has humectant properties, which means that it can help to attract moisture to the skin and improve hydration.
It’s important to note that glycolic acid can be irritating to some people, particularly those with sensitive skin.
If you’re interested in using skincare products that contain glycolic acid, it’s a good idea to start with a low concentration and gradually increase as tolerated. It’s also important to use sunscreen when using products containing glycolic acid, as it can increase sensitivity to the sun.
Application: Face serums, Face toners, chemical peels.
