Glycolic Acid is the smallest and most highly soluble of the alpha hydroxy acids making it especially efficacious in exfoliants and chemical peels. It reduces cell adhesion in the uppermost layer of the epidermis, promoting exfoliation of dead skin and cell replacement contributing to a smoother brighter complexion.
Glycolic Acid can be a strong irritant and people with sensitive skin should avoid its use.
What is glycolic acid good for?

Not suitable for sensitive skin.

This product can be used every day/every other day. This product can be used on its own and left on the skin for 5 mins before completing your skincare or it can be mixed with a toner on the cotton pad. Dermatologists agree that using a glycolic peel of 10% over the course of the week can produce the same effects as having a clinical peel. Over the course of the week you will notice dryness as this is a peel, moisturise often and always use SPF. A light exfoliation can be used after a week if necessary.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
