Glycolic Acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane. There are many types of AHA’s. Glycolic Acid is the most common type of AHA and it works in a number of ways primarily due to its exfoliation properties. Glycolic acid penetrates the upper layer of the skin and breaks up the “glue” that holds dead skin cells together. This allows the dead skin cells to gently slough off and reveals smoother and more evenly toned skin. It also helps bind water to increase skin hydration and give the skin a healthy glow. In addition to these benefits, medical grade products that contain Glycolic Acid help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out pigmentation and age spots.
Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA’s) are another class of exfoliating ingredients. The best know BHA is salicylic acid. Salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and improves texture and color and also helps with acne. It is ideal for people who are acne-prone or oily skin types because of the excellent penetration into the pores, removal of blackheads and reduction of oil on the surface of the skin.
Skin care products containing hydroquinone are often called bleaching creams or lightening agents. These skin care products are used to lighten hyperpigmentation such as age spots and dark spots related to pregnancy (often called melasma), over-exposure to UV rays, and acne. Since 1982, hydroquinone has been FDA-approved for the treatment of freckles, melasma and age spots in general. Today, hydroquinone is the most commonly used bleaching agent in the United States. Over 100 scientific articles confirm it is a safe topical treatment for improving hyperpigmentation. It is ideal for all skin types but is not suggested for pregnant women or those that are nursing.
Kojic acid is a natural acid that is primarily used for lightening skin pigmentation. It is an effective alternative to hydroquinone and can be used by pregnant and nursing women. The formal discovery of kojic acid occurred in 1989, and since then, the substance has been used widely in skin care products due to its numerous benefits. The ingredient is obtained from mushrooms that are native to Japan and is a by-product of the fermentation process used to produce the alcoholic beverage sake. In skin care products, kojic acid functions primarily as a skin-lightening agent and is used for similar purposes as hydroquinone which include improving freckles, melasma, and general age spots. The good news is when we are living in an age where we want skin care ingredients that are “safe enough to eat”, kojic acid is regularly ingested as a component of soy sauce, miso, sake or as a food additive preventing the browning of fruits like strawberries.
Vitamin C is one of our five super skin care antioxidants that have been clinically proven to stimulate collagen and tighten and firm the skin. However, it is also a great brightening ingredient! It improves skin dullness and gives the skin a radiant glow.
