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.
Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid with keratolytic and antimicrobial properties; it is widely used in dermatology due to its ability to promote epidermal scaling through breaking of intercellular desmosomal bridges. It also acts as regulator of skin oiliness and potential anti-inflammatory.
