Understanding the Essentials on AHAs
Alpha hydroxy acids are a family of molecules found in certain fruits. These natural fruit acids, also known as, AHAs rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old, sun-damaged surface skin cells.
There are two parameters which determine the penetration and in consequence the efficiency of AHAs. The first parameter is the size of the molecule. The smaller the molecule, the deeper and easier the penetration. Glycolic is the smallest molecule among AHAs. The second parameter is the PH. A low PH allows a deep penetration.
Deep penetration of active ingredients
Most of the cosmetics lines containing AHA’s are actual mixtures of various AHA’s of big molecular size, therefore of weak penetration & contained in a high Ph formula (acidity). These lines are primarily hydrating or plasticizing lines but do not have any stimulating activity on the cells (keratinocytes and corneocytes) of the deep layers of the skin.
The EXFOLDERM line, on the other hand, is made of products literally penetrating and stimulating the deep cells.
