What is Glycolic Acid?

Don’t worry, this is not a chemistry lesson - just a few facts about fruit that you may find surprising. It all begins with Alpha Hydroxies, a group of fruit extracts used since ancient times to beautify the skin. Gylcolic acid is derived from sugar cane and has more beautifying effects on the skin than any other fruit acid, but it has always been a little too irritating to be used daily. Enter GlyDerm.®

GlyDerm® created a unique form of glycolic acid that actually enhances the beautifying benefits and decreases the irritation. Glycolic acid helps the skin retain more moisture, leaving skin smoother, clearer, and younger looking. It will help improve the skin’s tone, texture, and refine large pores.
