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.

Alpha-H Liquid Gold 100mL


I'm not a megafan... I don't find it has any transformative affect on my skin to be honest, but it's a good solid exfoliating liquid. Going to try the Pixi one and some serum options, but this is a good safe option to come back to nevertheless.
