Glycolic Acid derived from sugarcane. It Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that is widely used for anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, dryness, and acne. Considered the golden standard of AHAs, Glycolic Acid’s keratolytic properties exfoliate dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, and this exfoliation reduces existing fine lines and wrinkles, fades hyperpigmentation, and clears acne.
Lactic Acid is water-soluble like Glycolic Acid but owing to its larger molecular size, it stays more on the outer layers of the skin. Being a keratolytic, it exfoliates dead skin cells from the skin’s surface by breaking down and dissolving the structure of dead skin cells without causing irritation, making way for a fresh layer of skin cells. Not just that, Lactic Acid chemically attracts water molecules to itself, drawing moisture to the newly exfoliated skin. A gentle but effective exfoliator, it is suitable for all skin types, especially for those with sensitive skin.
Avena Sativa (Green Oat) Extract:
It contains various phenols that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties while also moisturising the skin.

It is also responsible for the powerful anti-inflammatory effect that relieves the irritation, itching, and redness associated with skin conditions such as Atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and acneiform eruptions.

What is Glycolic Acid?
Lauded as the gold standard in chemical exfoliation, glycolic acid is the smallest Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). This potent ingredient recognized its ability to provide an even exfoliation to the skin by helping promote cellular turnover for improvement in the look of fine lines, skin texture, tone, and radiance. Derived from sugarcane, it is also a humectant meaning it has the chemical ability to draw moisture to itself. This means glycolic acid draws moisture to your newly exfoliated skin which, when used correctly, not only hydrates dry skin, but also prevents new fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin “Acids” word make me feel scary to use products. Is it safe for skin?
Yes, it may sound scary. The truth is that not all acids are harmful. For Example, What is Vitamin C? You probably heard lots of good thing and benefits of Vitamin C. May you know real name of Vitamin C is L-Ascorbic Acid. Another example Lemon also contains Citric Acid, Apples contains, Sugarcane contains Glycolic Acid, Broccoli contains Succinic Acid, Buttermilk contains Lactic Acid, Tamarind contains Tartaric Acid, Bitter Almond contains Mandelic Acid, Lysine amino acid derived Tranexamic Acid and Willow tree contains Salicylic Acid. The Acids is beneficial for the skin, effectively treat skin concerns. The all the skin beneficial acids are safe during the clinical trials. Moreover, the derma-cosmetic ingredients are completely safe for skin use and effectiveness as compare to poly herbal-based formulation.
Is Glycolic Acid a better choice for exfoliating the skin than Salicylic Acid or Benzoyl Peroxide?
Yes, Because Therapeutic Window (concentration range), Glycolic Acid can be administered in doses ranging from 1% to 70% (higher strengths should only be applied in-office by professionals). Clinical science determine the concentration range based on margin of safety. The Glycolic Acid possess the highest safety margin as compare to other Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) i.e. Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide.
Why Glycolic Acid acts as exfoliator but effective as anti-aging agent well?
Among the AHAs, Glycolic Acid is the simplest in structure and the smallest molecular weight; it can penetrate deeper into your skin’s epidermis to hypodermis. Moreover, Glycolic Acid ability to stimulate fibroblasts in the dermis to produce increased amounts of collagen. That makes skin feel firmer and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles.
Why should I use Glycolic Acid exfoliation instead of microdermabrasion or other Physical Exfoliant like scrubs?
Chemical Exfoliation is best and superior. Physical Exfoliation is hard to control. Every physical exfoliation treatment varies in duration, pressure, and exfoliant composition (eg. Crushed Nut Shells, Sand, a Washcloth, etc.) Chemical Exfoliates are consistent and specific because they do exactly what the formulator intended. A 10% chemical exfoliant will only work as intended; no matter how long you leave it on or how much you use. Glycolic Acid is the gold standard of Chemical Exfoliant due to its wide therapeutic range (strength can range from 1% to 70%; doses beyond 15% should only be administered by a professional) and its capacity, when manufactured properly, to be non-irritating and cause no side effects.
What is difference between Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA)?
AHA and BHA are commonly called keratolytic agents, which means they promote skin exfoliation to remove skin cellular turnover to provide skin clarity. However, the difference is the site of action due to structural changes in the molecules. For example, AHA like Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Mandelic Acid and Malic Acid is smaller than BHA like Salicylic Acid because AHA contains one carbon atom and BHA contains two carbon atom chains, which create the difference in physical property of the molecule. AHAs are water-soluble and work on the upper surface of the skin (Epidermis). BHAs are oil soluble and quickly absorbed by the skin and work on the beneath the skin (Hypodermis and Endodermis).
