Alpha hydroxy acids
What are they?
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are naturally sourced molecules formed in fruit, milk and sugar cane by a process of fermentation. They act on the stratum corneum by reducing corneocyte cohesion and encouraging the exfoliation of this outermost layer of the skin. The combination of several alpha hydroxy acids of different sizes is designed to improve their efficacy and reduce the appearance of irritations. It is known that the degree of efficacy depends on the type and concentration of AHA, the pH of the formulation and the other ingredients that accompany it.
Components: glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, tartaric acid, malic acid and citric acid.
What do they do for your skin?
AHAs stimulate epidermal renewal by reducing the signs of skin aging. This means brighter, softer, more supple and evenly toned skin.
