HOW IT WORKS
Glycolic Acid occurs naturally as a trace component in sugarcane, grapes and other fruits. As the first in the Alpha-Hydroxy Carboxylic Acids, it is one of the smallest molecules with acid functionality, which easily penetrates the skin. This useful organic acid reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis by weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together, dislodging them to reveal fresh new cells beneath.
Lactic Acid is another excellent Alpha-Hydroxy Acid that usually occurs in sour milk, but is also found in molasses due to partial conversion of sugars in apples and other fruits. With a natural affinity to the skin, it is also very effective at exfoliating and softening the surface.
Pyruvic Acid is the third Alpha-Hydroxy Acid included in this superb formula. As an intermediate in sugar metabolism found in cane sugar juice, and a precursor to Lactic Acid, Pyruvic Acid is known to be exceptional at removing dead skin.
