What is Alpha Hydroxy Acids?

AHAs, or Alpha Hydroxy Acids, are water soluble acids renowned for their exfoliating abilities. Derived from natural sources (such as fruits and sugar cane), AHAs work by dissolving the bonds that glue dead skin cells together, improving desquamation to alleviate the look and feel of lackluster, dulling skin. This makes AHAs ideal for dry, sun damaged or ageing skin as they not only increase cellular turnover but also improve the moisture content of skin for a more radiant, hydrated complexion. AHAs have a smaller molecular structure compared to other acid groups, enhancing their ability to penetrate skin. As such, AHAs can be irritating to sensitive complexions
