Why is it Non-Neutralized?

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.

Why Glycolic?

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 “Trustworthy Tingle” refers to the sensation some consumers first experience after applying Non-Neutralized Glycolic Acid products. This potent ingredient may cause skin to tingle due to the active compound working to generate cell turnover. This natural response is normal and safe.
