The body’s largest and visible organ, skin is constantly growing and regenerating itself. It has a natural exfoliation cycle to shed dead skin cells and replace with new, healthier cells on a regular basis. For a young adult, this turnover process occurs every 28 days however this process grows sluggish as the person ages and leads to a build-up of dead skin cells on the top layer of skin. This results in dull skin, an uneven tone and blemished texture. Glycolic acid is an essential ingredient that accelerates the rate of cellular turnover, promotes skin clarity, more even skin tone and skin texture.
Glycolic acid dissolves the bonds that bind surface dead cells to the skin. Glycolic acid will also clear your skin so that future products and active ingredients can penetrate the skin more effectively. Unlike more abrasive formulas, glycolic acid is a gentle yet effective exfoliator.
