So, what is alphahydroxyacids?

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are a group of naturally occurring organic acids commonly used in skincare and cosmetics due to their exfoliating properties. AHAs work by loosening and removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother and brighter skin underneath. The most commonly used AHAs in skincare products are glycolic acid, lactic acid, and mandelic acid. AHAs are also used in some food and beverage products as a flavoring agent or preservative. However, it is important to note that AHAs can increase skin sensitivity to the sun and should be used in conjunction with sun protection.
