Glycolic acid works as an exfoliating agent because of its high acidity but easy solubility. When placed on the skin as part of an exfoliating cream, gel or cleanser, glycolic acid goes under the damaged upper layers of skin and destroys the ‘glue’, which holds dead skin to the surface. As this dead skin is chemically burned off, the other ingredients carry the individual flakes away and a water rinse neutralizes the remaining acid. The result is a much-smoother skin surface and a more youthful appearance.
A secondary benefit is glycolic acid’s ability to draw moisturizers into the newly exfoliated skin surface.
One study showed that topical treatment twice a day for 3 months with 5% glycolic acid cream at pH 2.8 affected surface and epidermal changes, while the same treatment, but with a 12% cream reached deeper and influenced both the epidermis and the deeper dermis layer, and resulted in increased epidermal and dermal firmness and thickness. Both showed clinical improvement in skin smoothness and in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Another study showed that AHAs might thin the outer stratum corneum but actually, end up increasing the overall thickness of the epidermis. This thickening is accompanied by increased synthesis of collagen. It is apparent that alpha-hydroxy acids may do more than just increase exfoliation and skin cell turnover.

Product Reviews (verified purchases)
I’ve used many expensive products, such as MD Forte…I truly believe this product works better for my skin & without the higher cost! Great bang for the buck. I will definetly buy this again
This is honestly the best glycolic cleanser I’ve ever tried, and it’s a great value for the price! I’ve been using it for a few years now; I use it about three times per week as an exfoliate. I let it sit on my skin for a few minutes before I rinse it off – my skin starts to tingle and I can tell it’s working. I have large pores and very oily skin, and I get great results. I use it before bed, and my skin looks great in the morning.
I don’t care if the packaging is rough, this product WORKS. I have oily skin and live in a humid climate and this cleaner really helps control my breakouts. I was using MD Forte facial cleanser which is no longer available and then I switched to DermaDoctor Wrinkle Revenge 3. which is also discontinued. Hopefully, this will continue to be sold! Great product, really delivers.
