New publication on glycolic acid

CrossChem, a US-based raw materials and distribution partner of Hamburg-based Berg + Schmidt, has published an overview of the current state of research on the effectiveness and application of Berg + Schmidt’s GlyAcid (INCI: Glycolic Acid).

As the smallest alpha-hydroxy acid, glycolic acid can penetrate the skin, enhances the penetration of other active ingredients and helps to repair fatigued and damaged cells. The upper layers of skin are well-suited to bond with it, thanks to their 3D structure and chemical composition.

In addition, glycolic acid weakens adhesion of dead skin cells, allowing them to be shed uniformly and in a controlled manner. The repair mechanisms it induces result in a strong exfoliating and cell-renewing effect for healthy, damaged and mature skin alike.

At the same time, this can also lead to the release of cytokines that promote the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Formulations with glycolic acid promote rejuvenated, firmer and a more even skin appearance, as well as shiny, smooth hair and nail surfaces, the two companies said.

Berg + Schmidt supplies GlyAcid in highly pure and formaldehyde-free form in 70% solution or 99% solid forms. Depending on the concentration, it is used in creams, facial tonics, conditioners and nail care treatments, and it has also been used in treatments for ‘maskne’, the form of acne induced by wearing face masks.
