The small molecular size of Glypure® allows it to penetrate the skin more efficiently, potentially enhancing the results of complementary ingredients, such as kojic acid and hydroquinone. Glypure® readjusts water percentages in the epidermis, stimulates collagen synthesis, and promotes cell turnover/desquamation.
PureTech Scientific has extremely high standards and capability for product stewardship, product supply, and product quality. The off-shore producers can only promise these things. PureTech Scientific can deliver on them.
Glycolic Acid is an organic, naturally occurring acid that is excellent in breaking down bonds, dissolving, and releasing hardened cement from common construction site surfaces. Keep your tools, equipment, and vehicles cleaned and maintained with Glycolic Acid-based concrete remover formulations.
Glycolic Acid has unique features for inkjet inks, lithographic inks, and fountain solutions. The key features of a hydroxylic and carboxylic group allow it to function as a penetrant, chelating agent, or buffer depending on your ink formulating needs.
