The experts at eVivite.com have recently published information on glycolic acid, a popular ingredient in many face lotions, creams and peels, including VIVITE products. The article explains the risks and rewards of using glycolic acid and who is most likely to see adverse effects.
As noted in the eVivite.com article, glycolic acid is a type of alpha hydroxyl acid that naturally occurs in sugar cane. It has been used by the cosmetic industry for some time now. In addition to over-the-counter products, there are also stronger glycolic acid treatments that can only be performed by a licensed aesthetician.
As with all cosmetic products, significant research went into studying glycolic acid and its safety. Companies like Allergan, the makers of VIVITE, have studied the effectiveness of various alpha hydroxyl acids for years. While it was found to be highly effective at treating a variety of skin issues, glycolic acid can also cause irritation for some users.
The eVivite.com experts list that glycolic acid can be used for:
- Reduction of acne
- Lightening age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Clearing up folliculitis
- Treating rosacea
- Minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles
