Glycolic Acid

If your main skin concern is that you want clean, exfoliated skin then you need to look out for this ingredient! It’s primarily used because it can penetrate skin to its deeper layers, hence it’s use in chemical peels. 20-70% is on the higher end of the spectrum for this ingredient an I defiantly wouldn’t recommend that concentration especially if you have sensitive skin. ‘

However it can be used in smaller concentrations for personal skincare. Glycolic acid works because it binds to the skins upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of lipids that hold the dead skin cells together. Leaving your skin free to be exfoliated! You can find this ingredient in Pixi Glow Tonic!
