Glycolic Acid is said to be one of the most powerful and effective alpha hydroxy acids and is a luxurious alternative to harsh scrubs or peel off face masks. It has the ability to increase cell turnover which leaves the skin brighter and with a healthy glow. Glycolic Acid helps break down pore-clogging dead skin cells that stick to the surface of the skin, this dead skin can leave our skin looking dull and grey, regular use of glycolic acid can diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and discolouration—revealing a brighter and more youthful-looking complexion.

Glycolic Acid Peel is a scientifically proven ingredient in skincare and suitable for most skin types. It's water soluble and can help to improve the appearance of the following skin complaints

  • Breakouts & Blackheads
  • Sun damaged skin 
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Discolouration 
  • Dry skin 
  • Keratosis Pilaris 
  • Age Spots

If you have sensitive skin, please take a look at our lactic acid which is a gentler alternative to glycolic acid.

Also known as a ‘Chemical Peel’ or the ‘Lunchtime Peel’, Glycolic Acid is an Alpha hydroxy acid or AHA. Glycolic acid help to increase cell turnover, something that slows down as we age. The dead skin on our face and body is held on by a glue like substance, glycolic acid helps to dissolve this glue which then causes the dead skin to simply fall off, you won’t see the dead skin but you will notice your skin looking fresher instantly. 

At the same time Glycolic Acid Peel can stimulate the 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. 

Glycolic acid can be found in sugar cane although most glycolic acid found in skincare is synthetic, this ensures batch consistency and efficacy.  

    How is this good for spots, blackheads and enlarged pores? The most common reason we get breakouts is is when 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 and exposing fresh. Most people report that with regular use of AHA products, their once very oily skin becomes more balanced, the less oil your skin produces, the less oil there is to get trapped. If you suffer with deep blackheads, use the glycolic acid in conjunction with our Salicylic Acid 2%.

    If you have acne- Acne is a medical condition, while a good skincare routine is important and can help improve the condition of your skin, acne often requires medical treatment, a good skincare routine is important for acne prone skin and will support your treatment but will not treat acne.

    How does it help with ageing skin? The top dead layers of our skin are dull, dry and grey and don’t reflect the light. By using the glycolic acid to remove this dead skin, you will have a natural and beautiful glow, fine lines will start to soften, breakouts will reduce,  blemishes and mild sun spots will fade and your skin will just look so much healthier and more youthful. Glycolic acid may also stimulate your skin to create more collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives skin its firmness, plumpness, and elasticity, as we age the production of collagen slows down and so anything that stimulates the skin to produce more is essential in any routine where anti-ageing is a concern (we prefer the term ageing gracefully).

    Using glycolic acid regularly means you are constantly renewing and regenerating the skin. As mentioned above, glycolic acid can also help to stimulate collagen which gives the firmness, plumpness, and elasticity we have when we’re younger. As we age our skin can also get thinner, this can leave the skin looking uneven in tone, lacklustre and a little sallow, glycolic acid may help to thicken the skin which can help our skin appear more youthful.

    No topical treatments can reverse deep scarring but the Glycolic Acid peels will help to make your skin smoother, and the indentations a little softer. The treatment can also stimulate the production of collagen, which keeps your skin smooth and firm. 

    I’m pregnant or breastfeeding, can I use Glycolic Acid? This is all down to personal choice. As we don't test on animals our products haven't been tested for safety during pregnancy but here are no safety concerns regarding the use of glycolic acid during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

    Will my face be sore and peeling? As long as you follow the instructions supplied then no, you should experience no discomfort or peeling, remember this is just speeding up a natural process that occurs in your skin. As you will be applying a chemical exfoliator to your skin you will feel a slight stinging sensation, but it's loosening the bond of the old, dead skin only and not peeling off your healthy, living skin. You may experience some redness but this will soon fade. You skin may also feel slightly itchy after a treatment, this is perfectly normal as it's the skin regenerating itself. 

    What is the PH of this product? 3 which is an effective glycolic peel but buffered to be gentler on the skin. Acids can sound a little scary but these products have been formulated to be safe to use at home, lemon juice has a lower PH than any of our products.

    Aqua, Lavandula (Lavender) Angustifolia Water, Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose.

    AHA's may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit strong sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Do not use sunbeds while using products containing glycolic acid or salicylic acid.

    If you are undergoing any kind of intense beauty treatment (microdermabrasion, glycolic acid treatment, laser therapy etc) consult your therapist before purchase. If you have any broken veins/capillaries we recommend avoiding these areas. If you're on medication which increases the skins sensitivity or causes severe dryness we do not recommend acid based products during treatment and for 12 months after your course has been completed. People who commonly have cold sores may find that chemical peels can cause an outbreak of cold sores and may want to take their medication before use or avoid use altogether, do not apply acid products to your skin while you have an active cold sore.
