Product Overview
INCI Glycolic Acid (99%)

When used in cosmetic formulations, Glypure penetrates the skin effectively and stimulates cellular activity. As an anti-aging active, it moisturizes the stratum corneum to alleviate dry skin and flaking; can readjust the water percentage in the epidermis, allowing for smoother, softer, and more radiant skin; and increases the production of dermal matrix compounds and collagen synthesis in the dermis, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving elasticity and firmness.
