Alpha Hydroxy Acids
Also Known as “Fruit Acids"
DESCRIPTION: Alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs are natural acids derived from many different plants and especially fruits. They include malic acid, citric acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid and tartaric acid. Along with glucose, those acids are responsible for the taste of fruits.
EFFECT: The effectiveness of AHA skin care products may vary considerably, depending on the kind of AHA, the concentration of AHAs and especially the product ‘s pH. From very gentle products for daily use to intensive treatment regimens against acne scars, pigmentation spots or wrinkles – AHAs are true multi-talents with various applications. They are often found in products that aid in the reduction of wrinkles, that soften strong, defining lines, and that improve the overall look and feel of the skin.
