Glycolic Acid

 

Glycolic acid peel is the most common alpha-hydroxy acid peel, also known as fruit peel.

Glycolic acid is a colourless, odourless alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) derived from sugarcane. It’s a type of chemical exfoliant that dissolves the bonds between dead skin cells, allowing them to be wiped away easily, revealing smooth, younger skin below.
