Product Introduction:

Glycolic Acid, also known as glycolic acid and glycolic acid, is the abbreviation of α-hydroxy acid and is a kind of AHA acid.

Hydroxyacetic acid contains one carboxyl group and one hydroxyl group, and has the dual properties of carboxylic acid and alcohol.

As an acid, it can generate salts, esters, amides, etc.; as an alcohol, it can generate esters with other organic acids, and can also be esterified to generate glycolides, ethers or acetals.

The benefit is that lactic acid is mild and it is more suitable for dry and sometimes sensitive skin types.

It’s gentler and has a faster recovery time, making it a great option for sensitive skin.

Glycolic Acid is a very safe, effective and widely used fruit acid in the cosmetic industry.

This acid can easily penetrate through the epidermis to the dermis layer, so it has a strong epidermis-dermis effect.

Glycolic Acid is the most common effective acid ingredient in beauty and skin care products, and it is found in many famous international cosmetics.
