Glycolic Acid Guide

 

 

What is Glycolic Acid ? Back to top

Glycolic acid is thought to be the most effective AHA as it has the smallest molecular structure of any AHA and can therefore penetrate the surface of the skin. It is glycolic acid which is now accepted as being the leading AHA for use in cosmetic products.

 

 

The Origin of Glycolic Acid Back to top
Glycolic Acid belongs to a class of substances called alpha hyroxy acids (AHAs), commonly called "fruit acids". It occurs naturally in sugar cane. The use of AHAs to improve the appearance of the skin dates back to Egyptian and Roman times.

In 1974 the eminent US medical researcher and dermatologist, Dr Eugene van Scott, published the first scientific paper about the benefits of the AHAs in managing many common skin problems, such as those associated with ageing and acne. Since that time, further research and clinical experience has confirmed the advantages of using AHAs for improving the condition of the skin.

Glycolic acid is thought to be the most effective AHA as it has the smallest molecular structure of any AHA and can therefore penetrate the surface of the skin. It is glycolic acid which is now accepted as being the leading AHA for use in cosmetic products.

Glycolic peels are more gentle than a chemical peel from a cosmetic surgeon which is a deep peel, with the glycolic peel you have several milder treatments instead of one strong one and they will be no pain or peeling skin or scabs. 

A Glycolic peel costs about £50 per treatment you will need 3-10

 

An Old Solution Back to top

Since the beginning of time, women and men alike have relentlessly pursued the secret to radiant, younger-looking skin. Cleopatra bathed in sour milk and ladies in the French Court applied aged wine to their faces to keep their skin smooth and blemish-free. The link between these age-old remedies and beautiful, clear skin is a group of naturally occurring fruit acids, collectively referred to as Alpha Hydroxy Acids or AHAs.

These mild, organic fruit acids are so named because they are non-toxic and can be found in a variety of fruits and foods, for example: lactic acid in sour milk, tartaric acid in grapes, malic acid in apples and citric acid from citrus fruits.

Why is Glycolic Acid Beneficial for the Skin ?
Back to top
Many skin problems are associated with "hyperkeratinisation", which is the accumulation of excess dead cells on the surface of the skin. This in turn can contribute to the dull, coarse, rough, blotchy and dry appearance of ageing skin.

Glycolic acid helps to loosen the bonds between excess dead cells accumulating on the surface of the skin. The loosening of the surface skin cells leads to a continuing microscopic exfoliation, reduction of hyperkeratinisation and ongoing improvement in the appearance of the skin. Acne is associated with hyperkeratinisation around the hair follicles causing blockage of oil glands. Reducing hyperkeratinisation helps to unblock pores and improve the appearance of acne-prone skin.
