Glycolic acid – obtained from sugar cane. From among AHA acids, it is the most active because it has the simplest structure and the lowest molecular mass, so it easily and deeply penetrates the skin. It has strong peeling properties. What is more, it loosens the fibre bonds between keratinocytes, owing to that it reduces the surpass of the corneal layer of the epidermis.
