Alpha Hydroxi Acids
Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) are a group of plant and animal-derived water soluble acids used in a variety of skincare products. Used in higher concentrations and complex formulas – as chemical peels – AHAs can exfoliate the uppermost layers of skin.
AHAs are primarily used to exfoliate the skin. As we age, our natural skin cell cycle slows down, which can make dead skin cells build up. When your skin has too many dead skin cells, they can accumulate and make your complexion look dull.
