10% Free Glycolic acid, Ergothioneine, and Vitamin C.
Apply a small amount on a cotton pad/ball and spread over the areas to be cleaned (face, neck, hands, etc?) massaging in a circular motion.
¿How does Acglicolic work?
A complete high-performance formula. Anti-aging effect with the added deep action provided by glycoic acid encapsulated in liposomes, ensuring penetration levels never before achieved.
Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring active ingredient with high moisturizing, refreshing and regenerating properties. The Acglicolic range is formulated with the optimal concentrations to achieve a dramatic reduction in the visible signs of aging, while guaranteeing a suitable pH tolerance in all skin types.
In addition, the formula is completed with a unique combination of active ingredients that give:
Antioxidant and regenerating properties (thanks to liposomed Ergothioneine and plant stem cells).
Skin Soothing, moisturizing and protection.
L-ergothioneine is recognized as a low-molecular-weight, powerful and stable antioxidant consumed by humans in their diet that accumulates in cells subjected to high levels of oxidative stress. It is a natural amino acid of plant origin present in the skin. The skin has specific receptors for Ergothioneine, which are present in fibroblasts and keratinocytes (receptor OCTN-1) . In the skin, it is part of the defense system together with vitamins C and A, thus providing a synergistic effect on the protective function of the skin. Recently, it has been shown that Ergothioneine has a high antioxidant and anti-radical power.
Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid obtained from sugar cane, grapes and beetroot. Due to its very low molecular weight, its skin penetration is very high. It is a very versatile active ingredient and its uses in dermatology include, apart from aging, keratinization disorders, pigmentation changes, acne, folliculitis, and actinic and seborrheic keratosis.
Although its exact mechanism of action remains unknown, it has been shown that glycolic acid improves these disorders through thinning of the horny layer, promotion of epidermolysis, dispersion of melanin in the basal layer, and increased collagen synthesis in the dermis.
