Alpha hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are without question one of dermatologys greatest success stories. AHAs work their magic by accelerating the skins natural cell renewal cycle by invisibly lifting away the excess accumulation of dull devitalised surface skin cells thereby revealing a smoother clearer, brighter, healthier looking surface layer, with more refined looking pores, and fewer visible imperfections.
When formulated correctly and in the right circumstances, the clinical effects of these magic AHAs are often nothing short of breathtaking!
AHAs however are not without their downside. To work effectively, they must be formulated at a low “acid” pH, which can leave skin red, itchy and super sensitive. To add insult to injury, many cosmetic companies in an effort to save money and maximise profits use synthetic AHAs which unlike the more expensive naturally derived extracts are known for their potential to inflame the skin.
