Our Glycolic Acid Face Wash is known as our ‘powerhouse’ cleanser. Some may wonder why glycolic acid is a key ingredient for this product, and we want to provide you with the scientific answers. We will explain to you what glycolic acid is and how it benefits your skin.
What is Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acid is a subcategory of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA). It is derived from sugar cane and it has the smallest molecules in the AHA group. This allows it to penetrate the skin deeply, making it effective in treating skin issues like acne, fine lines, blackheads, dullness, and even oiliness.
How it Works.
It works by reacting with the top layer of skin, breaking it down and dissolving sebum and other substances that bind the skin cells together. It accelerates your skin’s renewal process, which brings new skin to the surface regularly when it is used in your usual routine. The dead skin cells are removed, creating a brighter, smoother, and younger appearance in your skin.
**Just like anything else in life, moderation is important. You always want to stay within a safe range of any AHA. A percentage of glycolic acid that is too high can cause redness, irritation, and more. Our Glycolic Acid Face Wash is at a safe and effective 10% concentration.
Glycolic acid is an effective way to keep or restore young, natural skin. The benefits include:
- Even exfoliation
- Reduced signs of lines and aging in skin
- Collagen boost
- Clear pores and minimize their appearance
- Removal of dead skin cells
- Less apparent acne scars (or other scar lesions)
- Effective acne treatment
- Effects are compound – more frequent uses, the better the results
