Glycolic Acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), its small molecule allowing it to penetrate the skin. Its main function is to exfoliate the skin, by breaking the bridges between the dead cells.
Glycolic Acid is particularly suitable for acne-prone skin as it unclogs the pores and thus helps to prevent acne and blackheads formation. Shedding the dead cells also helps with rough skin texture, pigmentation, and evens out the overall skin tone.

Every skin needs cleansing, moisturizing, nourishment, and replenishment to be healthy and glowy. But every skin requires a different kind of care. To create a skincare regimen that is just for you simply pick one product from each category:
that best fits your skin type or needs.
- Exfoliators – Direct Acids are a way to cleanse the skin by exfoliating the dead skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin. Exfoliation also prepares the skin for the next steps of the regimen.
- Hydrators – One of the main reasons for wrinkles formation is dehydration of skin, that is why it is important to hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss during the day.
- Reconstructs – With age the skin starts to lose elasticity and to sag, wrinkles start to form. Replenishing the missing molecules from outside slows down premature aging and helps to restore elasticity.
- Nourishment – Oils nourish in-depth and restore the natural oil balance of the skin, helping it to fight off the negative effects from pollution, harsh weather, and everyday stress on the skin.
