Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring non-toxic acids which improve the appearance of the skin. They constitute a class of compounds which exert specific and unique effects on skin structures such as stratum corneum, epidermis, papillary dermis and pilosebaceous follicles. They help to remove dead skin cells from the surface layer of the skin.
AHAs have been shown tо have profound effect on keratinization and corneocyte cohesion.
Loss of suppleness, appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots are all manifestations of aging, rough and dry skin.
AHAs accelerate the renewal of the epidermis by providing the skin with a gentle exfoliation that eliminates dead cells which dull the complexion. This smoothing action improves rough skin and restores skin freshness and softness.
Conditions of pathogenic, unusually dry skin characterized by extreme flaking and scaling may be attributed to a variety of genetic, intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Such problematic skin conditions have been particularly difficult to control by use of conventional moisturizers. AHAs have been described as effective for the treatment of such conditions in which abnormal keratinization consistently contributes to pathogenesis in the form of ichthyosis, warts, psoriasis, eczema and acne.
Beneficial effects of AHAs against hyperpigmented, photodamaged and wrinkled skin have been widely known.
AHAs exfoliate the skin by “dissolving” the bonds between skin cells, helping your skin to shed its dead cells and revealing the fresh new cells underneath. They do not require any rubbing or abrasion to do this, as compared to facial scrubs which physically “rub” dead cells away.

USED IN THE TREAMENT OF:
Acne and acne scarring:
Pimples and blackheads are due to dead skin cells collecting in your pores and blocking them up. AHAs help clean out your pores and prevent new pimple-causing blockages by encouraging your skin to get rid of the excess dead skin cells. AHAs also help to reduce the appearance acne scars.
Pigmentary spots of melanic origin:
AHAs help to even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of freckles and brown spots.
Cutaneous photoaging, Skin aging, wrinkling:
AHAs reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles particularly those resulting from accelerated aging because of the sun (photoaging). The deeper the wrinkle, the stronger AHA is required.
Cutaneous thickening and texture irregularities:
Sometimes a moisturizer does not work well because it cannot penetrate the layer of dead cells covering the top layer of the skin. Skin appears flaky and rough. AHAs help remove these dead cells allowing the moisturizer to penetrate and correct flakiness and rough appearance of the skin.
