Non-Active or Slightly Active Ingredients

These contain very slightly active ingredients (or neutralized active ingredients). For example, retinol, vitamin C, ferulic acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid.

These products typically add buffer ingredients that compromise the effectiveness and expected results from glycolic acid.

Non-active (neutralized) glycolic acid will not effectively penetrate into the deeper layers of skin or the pores, preventing it from activating the skin’s natural regeneration and exfoliation process.

The Active, non-neutralized difference

Our products utilize fully active ingredients including non-neutralized glycolic acid and trichloroacetic acid.

When applying real glycolic acid, the skin will experience the Trustworthy Tingle. This tingling sensation is the indication that the glycolic acid is fully active (non-neutralized) and is working as it should by entering the pores.

Dermatologist’s Choice’s non-neutralized glycolic acid provides the full strength of a medical-grade skincare treatment.
