Glycolic Acid Peel

glycolic acid

With the introduction of Glycolique by Megan Di Martino, one of the pioneers in Clinical Result Oriented Skin Care in 1992, Megan created a new skin care line focusing on refining, re-texturizing, and restoring the skin. It was an innovative product line that combined the benefits of natural botanicals and glycolic acid to give clients a youthful glow.

Fast forward 10 years and Megan again created a unique line of products that all utilize Glycolic Acid, and a unique blend of  all the other Alpha Hydroxys and Beta Hydroxy-Salicylic Acid, Natural Botanicals, Anti Oxidants and Peptides, creating the Novita Spa Clinicals proprietary ABC Complex.

At its most element, Glycolic Acid is part of the Alpha Hydroxy family of fruit acids. Glycolic Acid is derived from sugar cane. Other AHA’s are Lactic Acid derived from milk, Malic Acid derived from apples and Tartaric Acid derived from grapes. There are others but these are the ones most widely used. Scientifically it’s a combination of C2H4O3 – carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.

Why add Glycolic Acid to skin care products? It acts as a non-abrasive and non-toxic way to break apart dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. It has the smallest molecular structure of the other fruit acids and has the greatest skin penetration. Because of this it is the most effective of all the fruit acids.
