What is Glycolic Acid? Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid derived from sugar cane. Alpha hydroxyl acids occur naturally in certain fruits and foods. For example, glycolic acid from sugar cane; citric acid from citrus fruit; malic acid from apples; tartaric acid from grapes; lactic acid from sour milk. Of all the alpha hydroxyl acids, glycolic acid is the most promising for skin rejuvenation, because it has the smallest molecular size, allowing it to penetrate the outer layer of the skin to a greater extent than the other acids.

How does Glycolic Acid work? Glycolic Acid penetrates the layers of the skin and works in two ways:

First, glycolic acid loosens and dissolves the glue-like substance that holds the outer layer of cells to each other and to the underlying epidermis. These thick, piled up, clinging cells are responsible for the appearance of dry, rough, scaly skin and brown age or sun damage spots. When the glue is loosened, the thick strateum corneum is sloughed away, and the skin has a much more smooth, moist, refined, and vibrant appearance. Glycolic acid also loosens the dead cells which block the follicles and cause acne. Once the follicles clear, glycolic acid continues to work to prevent acne from recurring.

Second, glycolic acid affects deeper layers of the skin by regenerating collagen and elastin. Clinical studies show marked disappearance of fine lines and reduction of coarser, deeper wrinkles.

What are the long term benefits? With regular use of glycolic acid products, skin will have a healthier appearance, increased elasticity and firmness, diminished fine lines, diminished comedones, and improvement in texture, color, tone, and moisture content.
