What are Alpha Hydroxy Acids?
Also known as AHAs, these are non-toxic substances and they
occur naturally in food. They are non-prescription dermatological products with
cosmetic benefits. They do more than simple cosmetic changes but whenever you
begin to discuss the changes of cell structure, you immediately change this to
the realm of a drug. The industry has become so large and powerful that the
The most common AHAs are Citric (citrus fruit), Glycolic
(sugar cane), Lactic (sour milk), Malic (apples), and Tartaric (grape wine)
Acids. Today, most of these are made synthetically. These are actually better
for you because both ingredients and the production are under control and never
change, which makes products more consistent. Natural products are never
consistent. For example, you can take the grapes from year to year and the wine
will taste different every harvest.

Your skin is the largest organ of the body. Composed of
three basic sections, it is the epidermis that we see, touch and feel. Its
cells rise to the surface and flake off microscopically. This natural process
of exfoliation occurs all day, every day, quite inconspicuously.
