Glycolic Acid

Glycolic Acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) which promotes exfoliation and a natural brightening of the skin tone. By exfoliating and renewing the skin, glycolic acid not only evens out skin discolorations, it also helps to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. AHA's such as Glycolic Acid can help other ingredients in skin lightening treatments by allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring substance, which when included in a skincare formula provides a whole load of incredible benefits to the skin, such as exfoliating, skin correcting, brightening, rejuvenating and even moisturising.

It is made up of small molecules, and it's unique structure means it is able to penetrate the skin deeply and easily, getting to work it's wonders quickly and effectively.

In fact, Glycolic Acid is the main ingredient in most chemical peels performed by professional beauty salons due to it's extreme effectiveness and numerous benefits for the skin.

Glycolic Acid derives from plants such as pineapple, sugar cane and sugar beets.
The unique botanical properties help to treat various skin conditions such as Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, Psoriasis, and scarring.

It is the number one ingredient for exfoliation - it easily removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing a much brighter, clearer and even toned complexion.
