Glypure® cosmetic-grade glycolic acid from PureTech Scientific, previously manufactured by Chemours, 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.
