The smaller, the better. That's so not how the saying goes, right? Wrong—when it comes to your skincare, at least.
We'll break it down like this: the smaller a molecule an ingredient is, the more easily it can penetrate the skin. So the smaller a molecule of an ingredient, the better it can reach the deepest layers of any skin problem you find yourself having, and address the problem at its source. Makes sense, right? Well, glycolic is the smallest of all the acids, and thus, produces the most remarkable results. That's why you'll find it in products and anti aging treatments: it gets things done. It doesn't just regenerate collagen (aka the very thing that makes dewy and youthful skin look, well, dewy and youthful), it also thickens your skin and evens skin tone. And yes, skincare junkies: it's even smaller than your beloved lactic acid. We love it so much, we put it right there in the name of our TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum—we shout our ingredients loud and proud.
Do you consider your skin sensitive (we have a whole bunch of thoughts on this topic, BTW http://www.drunkelephant.com/blogs/news/why-you-should-rethink-your-essential-oil-obsession)? Had bad experiences with glycolic and other acids in the past? We've got your back: we formulated our serum with a blend of cactus plant enzymes to reduce irritation. Go glycolic—you'll never want to go back.
