It is the smallest molecular weight fruit acid (alpha-hydroxy acid) with a molecular weight of 76.05. Due to its small molecular weight and light body bones, this acid can easily penetrate through the epidermis to the dermis layer, thus having a strong epidermis-dermis effect.

Glycolic acid can also destroy the desmosomes of epidermal keratinocytes, or in general, it weakens the connection between cells, and promotes the release and shedding of epidermal keratinocytes, promoting new cells to replace old old cells, so as to achieve skin rejuvenation.

Regardless of any fruit acid or vitamin A acid, it has a certain stimulating effect on the skin, and its usage and concentration are directly related. The glycolic acid skin care products that we can use every day are generally at a low concentration of 5%-10%. As long as the skin tolerates it, it can be used for a long time to achieve long-term whitening, lifting, shrinking pores, and oil control.
