Hydroxyacids have been used for centuries in many different forms. They help to exfoliate the upper dead skin layers and promote the generation of a new healthier skin. With regular use there is evidence of signaling within the dermis that improves the production of collagen and elastic tissue.
The skin has a resultant smoother and firmer appearance and feel.
Melanogenesis is also inhibited so that uneven skin tone is corrected.
Alphahydroxyacids work rapidly to exfoliate and are suitable for a mature, more sun damaged skin type.
Polyhydroxyacids are second generation hydroxyacids that are tolerated by sensitive skin as well as rosacea and eczema prone skin. Polyhydroxyacids will moisturise the skin while gently exfoliating without irritation.
