Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are derived from natural sources such as fruit, sugar, and sour milk.
SOURCES OF COMMON AHAs
Glycolic acid extracted from sugar cane
Lactic acid extracted from milk
Malic acid extracted from pears and apples
Citric acid extracted from oranges and lemons
Tartaric acid extracted from grape
These acid-based treatments gently resurface the skin while stimulating new collagen and elastin growth. AHA’s have been proven, n independent clinical trials to increase collagen and elastin, reduce hyperpigmentation and sun-damage discolouration.
The production of new collagen and elastin plumps up and diminshes fine lines and firms the skin.
The reduction of hyperpigmentation and discolouration caused by sun damage increases skin luminosity and reduces the risk of further cell damage.
