What are AHA’s?

Alpha hydroxy acids, or AHA’s, are natural acids derived from fruits such as oranges and lemons. In facial skincare products, the acids are often listed as sugar cane extract, glycolic acid, malic acid, triple fruit acid or lactic acid. For the best results, use a product with concentrated AHA levels of 10 percent or less. Because the acids make your skin more susceptible to the sun, wear a sunscreen whenever you use AHA-boosted creams or serums.

Why would I want AHA’s in my skin treatments?

  • Alpha hydroxy acids act as chemical exfoliants,
  • Alpha hydroxy acids can help to “inhibit melanin formation” and remove discolorations that leave your skin tone darker.
  • These can optimize your skin’s absorption levels so you get the maximum results from your favorite skincare products.
  • It can reduce the severity of surface lines and wrinkles.
