in 1981, Dr. B. began developing Dermatologist's Choice skincare products with the effective and natural ingredient Glycolic Acid, derived from sugar cane. A time-tested treatment in the medical community, Glycolic Acid is commonly used for a dermatology office chemical peel. Glycolic Acid (AHA) is also popularly known as the natural substitute and #1 OTC competitor to Retin-A (Retinoic Acid). A powerful and highly effective ingredient, Glycolic Acid is used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by eliminating lifeless and damaged skin cells to reveal a healthy new complexion.
The Non-Neutralized Difference. This is real Glycolic.
Not all glycolic acid is created equal. Neutralized glycolic cancels out the full benefits that glycolic is supposed to bring to the skin: glowy and clear complexion and reduced fine lines and acne. The good news is DermChoice uses only non-neutralized glycolic acid so you get all the effective benefits.
