Alpha-hydroxy acids are commonly found and isolated from fruits of all sorts. That is why they are referred to as fruit acids. For example, malic acid is found in apples, citric acid can be isolated from most citrus fruits and glycolic acid is commonly found in honey and sugar cane. Lactic acid is found in milk that has soured and Tartaric acid can be isolated from fermented grapes (wine).

Glycolic acid works as an exfoliating agent because of its high acidity but easy solubility. When placed on the skin as part of an exfoliating cream or gel, glycolic acid goes under the damaged upper layers of skin and destroys the ‘glue’, which holds dead skin to the surface. As this dead skin is chemically burned off, the other ingredients carry the individual flakes away and a water rinse neutralizes the remaining acid. The result is a much-smoother skin surface and a more youthful appearance. A secondary benefit is glycolic acid’s ability to draw moisturizers into the newly exfoliated skin surface.
One study showed that topical treatment twice a day for 3 months with 5% glycolic acid cream at pH 2.8 affected surface and epidermal changes, while the same treatment, but with a 12% cream reached deeper and influenced both the epidermis and the deeper dermis layer, and resulted in increased epidermal and dermal firmness and thickness. Both showed clinical improvement in skin smoothness and in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Another study showed that AHAs might thin the outer stratum corneum, but actually end up increasing the overall thickness of the epidermis. This thickening is accompanied by increased synthesis of collagen. It is apparent that alpha-hydroxy acids may do more than just increase exfoliation and skin cell turnover

great product!! I’m an esthetician and I love this product! Its great for at home use if you know what you are doing! This is going to sting and you should have you neutralizer of baking soda and water made before applying!! I suggest cotton swabs, or a fan brush for application..I apply baking soda solution with the fan brush as well! It will fizz but that’s normal!! Please only peel ever 10 – 14 days to allow skin to heal!!! A ph balancing solution is no needed!! Your skin returns to your natural ph within…

Great Peel for Black skin ..GREAT BRAND! I am a Black woman from the Caribbean and I have used this 35% peel as well as their 70% peel and this is a great brand. The strength of their products are spot on! I purchased the 70% a few months back and burned my face but that was my fault because it was my first time using any type of peel and I thought stronger meant better. I ended up using the 70% buy diluting it with water. Now that that bottle is finished I am using this 35% and it works great. minimizes lines and helps with…

Be careful & have the baking soda water ready before you apply!!! This stuff was great for me to try out for a first time, at-home peel. IT IS REALLY STRONG. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE BAKING SODA MIXED WITH WATER READY TO NEUTRALIZE THE BURNING BECAUSE IT STARTS BURNING FAST!!!
