Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)
What are AHAs?

AHAs offer exfoliation as an alternative to manual exfoliation, working primarily by dissolving the bonds between skin cells to allow the removal of dead cells and a subsequently smoother skin surface.

How do AHAs work?

AHAs offer a smoother skin texture, and negate the use of harsh scrubs for exfoliation. Since they work on skin’s surface, and are water soluble. They’re generally preferred for normal to dry, sun-damaged skin, due to their ability to enhance natural moisturising factors within skin. They’ve also been proven effective in reducing the visible signs of sun damage.

Who should use AHAs?

AHAs are effective on oily or congested skin, acne, wrinkles, general skin texture and tone (pigmentation).

How are AHAs used?

AHAs can appear in face washes, masks, serums and creams.

Can AHAs be used on the body and face?

AHAs are relevant for body and face use due to its ability to help skin gently exfoliate its buildup of dead skin cells.
