Glycolic Acid Powder (99%)

Glycolic Acid is a naturally occurring chemical belonging to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family. Derived from sugar cane, this important AHA is the smallest of the fruit acids and is able to penetrate the skin, allowing it to effectively dissolve the ‘glue’ that holds dead cells on the surface of the skin.

 

The dead skin cells are what cause a dull, uneven skin tone, and the blocking of pores leading to blackheads and acne. This dissolving action of this active allows the dead cells to slough off, leaving behind a smoother skin surface with clear pores.

Unveil smoother, softer and more even toned skin with our product. It easily penetrates your skin to exfoliate layers of dead skin cells that dull your complexion to immediately expose a clear, softer, more radiant face. It also stimulates the growth of new cells so that your complexion will continue to stay healthy long-term. It will also diminish the appearance of age spots, reduce hyper-pigmentation to even skin tone, prevent blemishes and help reduce acne scarring.

This also helps stimulate collagen formation under the skins surface which helps plump up the skin from beneath, smoothing out fine surface wrinkles and superficial scars.

Suitable for all skin types and both beginning and experienced peelers. Dilute appropriately to required strength. If you don’t already have Sodium Bicarbonate/Baking soda in your beauty cabinet we advice that you purchase it here. This product is very easy to use, you simply cleanse, apply, time it, neutralize (with Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) and water) and rinse.
