Some information about Alpha Hydroxy Acids and why they are so beneficial
AHA are well known ingredients in the cosmetic field for their renewing / exfoliating properties.
They are also know as fruit acids because many of them occur naturally in fruit. For example Malic acid is found in apples, Gycolic acid in sugar cane, Citric acid in citrus fruits. Lactic acid is a by-product of some species of bacteria capable of lactic fermentation but it occurs naturally in many fruits such as pineapple and blueberry.
The name AHA refers to the particular chemical structure common to all these molecules. They are able to destroy the bonds that unite the cells and the superficial layers of the skin. These layers are mainly composed of keratin, which is why the activity of AHAs is also known as keratolytic activity.
AHAs are extremely helpful in eliminating dead skin cells and promoting cell renewal. Gycolic, Lactic and Malic acids are the smallest AHAs in terms of molecular structure and dimension a fact that contributes to their keratolytic properties and makes them top ingredients in smoothing cosmetic products.
