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.
