The acids of natural origin such as chemical act so that the skin is exfoliated, renewed and more easily, it stimulates the production of collagen. In general, the hydroxy acids are one of the components most commonly used in the cosmetic anti-aging, because they are effective and can improve the problem of photo-aging, wrinkles, skin hydration and elasticity.
These act on the two levels of the skin, dermal and epidermal. When you apply it on the skin, stimulates the exfoliation of the epidermal cells of the stratum corneum by interfering with the ionic bonds between the cells and in this way eliminating the older cells to improve the appearance of the skin. It also stimulates the expression of the gene responsible for the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, so skin feels more hydrated, elastic and better toned, it reduces the tendency to blotches and the will removing. Since years we know that the AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acids) are very effective on the skin, the majority of these are from the fruits.
The aha – alpha–hydroxy-acids acids are carboxylated, which are found naturally in many foods, such as the glycolic acid in sugar cane, lactic acid in milk, citric acid in citrus fruits, malic acid in apples, the mandelico in bitter almonds.
The bha – beta-hydroxy-acids, such as salicylic acid, are very similar to the first but are fat soluble, which means they do not dissolve in water. When you have a lipid structure, it can penetrate into the skin through the sebaceous follicles so it is especially appropriate to people who have problems with enlarged pores and acne.
Some BHA are less irritating than the AHA.
