Glypure® cosmetic-grade glycolic acid is used in many cosmetics and other personal care products; it is the most popular active ingredient in anti-aging formulations, with strong consumer recognition. Glycolic acid is the smallest organic acid, allowing it to more effectively penetrate the skin and hair, and elicit changes at the microscopic level.
Glypure® glycolic acid is used in various skincare applications, such as skin peels, creams, serums, lotions, sunscreens, and lightening creams to stimulate cellular activity and readjust the water percentage in the epidermis. It also offers unique advantages in hair care, offering moisturization and strengthening benefits in products including shampoo, conditioner, leave-in treatments, and all-in-one hair and body washes. DuPont is the world leader in supplying cosmetic grade glycolic acid.
