Glycolic acid 70% (cosmetic grade)
Odor: characteristic
Use: Glycolic Acid 70% (cosmetic grade) is the smallest molecule of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid. Due to its small size it is able to penetrate the skin, getting into the pores to clear out debris and unclog the pores. This stimulates new growth of skin and removal of old, dead, dull skin. Glycolic Acid 70% (cosmetic grade) is mainly used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin through chemical peel process. Once applied to the skin it breaks down the lipids that hold the dead skin cells on the surface, speeding their removal, resulting in an improved appearance with fewer spots, refined pores, and a more even skin tone that is more radiant.
