Glycolic acid is among the most popular actives in anti-aging formulations and has strong consumer recognition as an ingredient in many anti-aging skin care products. Extensive clinical data show that when used as a skin care ingredient, Glypure® cosmetic-grade glycolic acid penetrates the skin effectively and stimulates cellular activity. It also can readjust the water percentage in the epidermis, allowing for smoother, softer and more radiant skin. What’s more, Glypure® high-purity cosmetic-grade glycolic acid can enhance the performance in certain topical over-the-counter and prescription applications.
