Shop Glycolic Acid


Glycolic acid is an exfoliant and one of the most popular alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) used in skincare products today. It works by helping to remove dead skin cells, so that the skin becomes more radiant. Glycolic acid is the smallest of all AHAs. Its small molecular size is the reason that glycolic acid does not only work on the surface of the skin but is also able to get below the surface of the skin and into the pores for deeper impact on the skin.

What does glycolic acid do for your skin?

Glycolic acid exfoliates and is able to stimulate the skin into increasing collagen production. But wait, there’s more!. Not only will your fine lines and wrinkles fade, but dullness and hyperpigmentation are also no match for the power of this powerful, cosmeceutical AHA. And, if you are looking for another incentive, glycolic acid is also able to effectively treat breakouts and minimise their frequency.

Is cosmeceutical glycolic acid for me?

Glycolic acid works best for skin that is normal, oily or combination. If you have sensitive or dry skin types it is likely that you could experience irritation, depending on the concentration of glycolic acid in the product.
How should I use glycolic acid in my routine?

Know your skin. If you have sensitive skin that is prone to irritation, then a cleanser that contains glycolic acid is probably the best and gentlest way to introduce glycolic acid in your skincare routine. Once your skin has adjusted or if your skin is not prone to irritation, then a leave-on product such as serum or toner should work out just fine.

Gel serum

It is a reddish colour gel form serum. It is very light texture which I use in AM routine just after the toner. I feel my skin is toned up and hope this will work on my brown spots.

Great exfoliator

Love this product. I use twice a week on days when I'm not using retinol and it helps to keep my skin soft and glowing. I have dry skin and this has definitely improved the look and feel of my skin.

The perfect starter kit but disappointed packaging

The asap platinum collection has been a great start torwards looking after my skin and consolidating the perfect skincare regime. I have dry, congested and hormonal acne-prone skin and I have seen incredible improvements to the hydration, texture, with reduced redness and scaring. I have repurchased the super B complex serum and radiance serum and strongly recommend these products. I have chosen a...
