Do you know that there are various types of aha? Though all of them work in the same way, their molecular size and penetration into the skin is what differentiates them. If you have any questions, ask us below!
? AHA are alpha hydroxy acids. AHAs loosen the bonds of the dead cells and exfoliate them off the skin to reveal a brighter and fresher skin.
? Various types of AHAs and where they are derived from
Lactic Acid (from fermented milk)
Glycolic Acid (from sugarcane)
citric Acid (from citrus fruits)
Mandelic Acid (from bitter almonds)
Tartaric Acid (from grapes)
Malic Acid (from unripe fruits)
? How do different acids work differently?
Depending on the molecular size of the acid, they have different penetration capabilities and hence they work on different skin problems. Apart from exfoliating, various acids also have brightening, hydrating and anti-aging properties
