The Glycolic Acid has been partially neutralised which means it’s released a little slower to avoid irritation.
How does it work?
Alpha-hydroxy acids perform at the base of the stratum corneum, dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells together. Because this increases cell turnover, skin becomes smoother, more elastic and more even in tone and texture.
At the same time Glycolic Acid also stimulates your skin to produce more collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin and keeps it elastic and line free; when this starts to disintegrate, skin begins to sag and wrinkle.
The Glycolic Acid in this product has been partially neutralised, this means that the glycolic acid is released over a period of time and is less irritating than glycolic acid that hasn't been partially neutralised, giving you the same results without the side effects.
How is this good for spots?
The most common form of acne is caused as hair follicles get clogged by dead skin cells and sebum (the oil your skin naturally produces). Bacteria multiply within the clogged pores and so spots and blackheads form. By removing the dead skin cells you are also removing the grime and excess oil that's blocking up the pores.
How does it reduce scars and wrinkles?
When new layers of skin grow they are following the pattern, or blueprint of the skin above them, so if you have scars in your skin that that is the blueprint the new skin is following. By removing the top layers of skin you are reducing that blueprint and so the scar will become less visible, slowly over time.
No topical treatments can reverse deep scarring but the Glycolic Acid 15% Night Treatment will make your skin smoother, and the scars a little less noticeable. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen which keeps your skin smooth and firm. It also allows your moisturiser to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, and so the skin’s own regeneration process can happen more efficiently.
