Glycolic Acid

Your frequently asked question about Glycolic Acid answered

What are the benefits of Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic acid offers a huge range of skin benefits including: minimise the appearance of wrinkles, bringing clarity to a dull/uneven skin tone, smoothes rough, bumpy skin, unclogs pores and increases hydration (yes, even increase hydration!)

What does Glycolic Acid do to your skin?

Glycolic Acid is one of the most popular chemical exfoliants found in skincare today. It’s an AHA, that works to break down the bonds between the outer layer of skin cells, causing the old skin to be removed. This results in fresher, clearer and smoother looking skin.

Can you use Glycolic Acid every day?

How often you can use Glycolic Acid depends on its concentration, what other products you are using and what the Glycolic Acid is blended with. Your skin can get used to tolerating glycolic, and we recommend building up to applying the ingredient more frequently.
