Glycolic Acid is a synthetic Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), and is derived by hydrolysing trichloroethylene. Over centuries, glycolic acid benefits have become known to boost rejuvenation and enhance skin discoloration through methods of exfoliation and peeling agents. Using glycolic acid for skin pigmentation rejuvenation has also proven to be an effective method for skin brightening.1
Glycerin can be derived naturally from plants and animals, or manufactured synthetically. Glycerin can help to improve skin-hydration, as well as having soothing effects due to the similarities it shares with the skins physical properties. As glycerin naturally attracts water, it promotes moisture retention and increases skin hydration when applied topically. Consequentially, such skin-hydrating benefits will help assists in alleviating irritating symptoms.2,3,4
