Glycolic acid belongs to a class of AHAs commonly known as fruit acids. It occurs naturally in sugar cane. It is considered to be a most effective AHA because it has a small molecular structure and so it can penetrate the surface of the skin more readily.
Lactic acid is naturally derived from sour milk and grain, and is often synthetically derived by converting malic acid (from apples). Its benefits to the skin have been well documented for centuries - even Cleopatras beautiful skin is attributed to her infamous milk baths.
Both glycolic and lactic acids work by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. And through this microscopic exfoliation activity they smooth the skins texture problems including acne, fine wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin depressions.They also have the fantastic faculty of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating collagen and skin growth.
Salicylic acid (BHAs) can be a little milder than AHAs because they dont penetrate the dermis. But this doesnt mean they are less potent. In fact, while BHAs essentially work the same as AHAs, they have certain talents that AHAs dont have. Salicylic acid encourages the sloughing of dead skin cells as AHAs do, but it also has the ability to penetrate into the pore, while AHAs do not.This advantage makes it very effective for improving blemishes, by breaking down blackheads and whiteheads, and easing clogged
Skin Resurfacing Cream - Dramatically smoothes the appearance of acne-scarring, wrinkles and the visible signs of skin aging. How did a cream invented to reduce acne scarring become the wrinkle cream of choice for thousands of people? The fact that "Gamma Hydroxy" was invented as a resurfacer to help reduce the appearance of acne scarring is really what sets it apart from the ordinary exfoliants or cream peels.
