Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid derived from the sugar cane and is non-toxic. It is not absorbed by the body and will not cause any systemic side effects.
Glycolic acid reduces cell accumulation at the upper levels of skin, speeding up cell turnover while stimulating collagen in the process. Reducing cell accumulation promotes a healthy, softer, smoother, younger looking skin. It reduces the visible signs of ageing and abnormal skin pigmentation. Treatment is very good for active acne or acne prone skin.
