The science behind the formula…
Not every glycolic acid cream is created equal. The effectiveness of glycolic acid is determined by its free acid value, which depends on 2 factors:
- Concentration: a 4-10% glycolic acid is the ideal concentration for nightly use
- pH: low pH formulas preserve the strength of the glycolic acid for optimal efficacy on skin.
Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight is formulated with a concentration of glycolic acid that delivers a true 10% glycolic free acid value in a 3.5 pH formula tolerable for nightly use. This potent glycolic acid cream is complemented by a soothing complex of botanicals and oils. Along with a 2% phytic acid to improve texture, radiance, and overall glow.

- Derived from sugar cane, this powerful fruit acid helps stimulate skin’s natural exfoliation process and minimizes the buildup of dead skin cells. Resulting improvement in the appearance of skin texture, tone, and a brighter complexion.
