Glycolic acid – an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), commonly known as a ‘fruit acid’ occurs naturally in sugar cane juice. It is considered to be the most effective AHA because it has a small molecular structure allowing it to penetrate the surface of the skin more readily.
Lactic Acid - another AHA, derived from sour milk and grain.
Both Glycolic and Lactic Acids work by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. Through this microscopic exfoliation activity, these AHAs smooth the skin’s texture problems including acne, fine wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin expressions. They also have the fantastic benefit of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating collagen and skin growth cycle.
Salicylic Acid - a Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), encourages the sloughing of dead skin cells but also has the ability to penetrate into the pore. This advantage makes it very effective for improving blemishes, by breaking down blackheads and whiteheads, and clearing clogged pores.
