Glycolic Acid: What You Need To Know

Glycolic Acid: What You Need To Know

You might have heard the term Glycolic Acid, but let's explore what this ingredient is and why it's so powerful. 

About 30 years ago, I helped pioneer the field of Glycolic Acids within the skincare industry, introducing some of the highest-concentration options available without a prescription. A member of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family, Glycolic Acid promotes the acceleration of skin cell production and exfoliation, promotes skin renewal, and most importantly, revitalizes your skin. 

Glycolic Acids help to break down the cellular cement that binds your cells together while speeding up the renewal and turnover of your cells. You'll discover that you can find Glycolic Acid as an ingredient in many different forms of products from lotions to cleansers, and treatment pads to masks.

We can offer the optimal Glycolic solution for your skin and our "Step-Up" program allows beginners to start with a lower strength and increase as your skin adjusts.

Keeping your skin free and clear everyday is un-complicated, even with just our Foaming Mild Gel Cleanser. A soft, luxurious foamy feel on your skin rinses away dead cells and works for all ages and skin types.

In our Step-Up system, both our Glycolic Acid Oil-Free Pads & Enriching Moisturizing Cream start at 10% Glycolic Acid and increase up to 15%, then 20% for targeted, visible results.

Did you know?

Glycolic Acid can help with controlling acne, exfoliation, and anti-aging, promoting smoother, more even-toned and rejuvenated skin.
