Alpha Hydroxy Acids

All Ingredients To Die For Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) are from plant source.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids
(AHA's) at concentrations of 2% or less are extremely effective moisturizers, having powerful moisture-binding properties. When used above 2% and with a final pH under 4.0 the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) are one the most effective exfoliants known, increasing cell proliferation and shedding to reveal a fresh, young, beautiful layer of skin.

The most commonly utilized Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) in cosmetics are Citric, Glycolic, and Lactic. Of these, we never recommend the use of Citric Acid in skin care due to it's potential for irritation. We only recommend the use of Citric Acid in fizzing bath products and then only because the pH is controlled, and neutral, due to the combination with baking soda which lessens potential for irritation.

For the most powerful exfoliation activity the most commonly used is Glycolic Acid due to it's smaller size which enables the Glycolic Acid to easily penetrate the pores for a much more effective, but aggressive, sloughing of dull surface skin.

For the most gentle exfoliation we recommend Lactic Acid which is much less aggressive but still an effective exfoliator. In most AHA products a combination is utilized to get the best of all activities to offer exfoliation while taming irritation.
