So, what is alpha-hydroxy?

Alpha-hydroxy is a type of naturally occurring organic acid that is commonly used in the cosmetic industry due to its exfoliating and skin rejuvenating properties. It is derived from various fruits such as apples, grapes, and citrus, and is known for its ability to penetrate the skin's surface and dissolve dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Alpha-hydroxy is often found in skincare products such as facial peels, masks, and creams, and has been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. It is also believed to promote collagen production, making it a popular ingredient in anti-aging products.
