(An Alpha – Hydroxy Acid) Glycolic acid is water soluble, deep cleansing and exfoliating. It increases the rate at which the skin sheds dead cells and reveals new cells. Improves dry skin, age spots and acne prone skin.
It is a well-recognized fact that the skin rejuvenates itself by a process of exfoliating the outer layers of the old cells and replacing them with healthy cells. This process is seen functioning optimally in the infant and young child where mature cells shed easily and new cells grow back rapidly. As we age, this process slows down. Excessive amounts of dead cells accumulate resulting in dry skin, wrinkling, and age spots by removing the outer layer of dead cells, the underlying younger healthy cells are exposed – resulting in a striking improvement in the appearance and texture of the skin. New cell growth is stimulated returning the skin to its younger condition.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Salicylic Acid have been proven to be excellent exfoliates, removing aging cells and stimulating new division.
