Benefits of Glycolic Acid in Hair Care

Cosmetic-Grade Glypure™ Glycolic Acid for Hair Care

As the simplest alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and smallest fruit acid, glycolic acid easily penetrates the cuticle layer of hair shafts. This characteristic allows glycolic acid to attach itself to keratin—a fibrous protein that protects hair from damage and promotes hair growth and length—to further strengthen hair and decrease breakage.

Clinical data supports glycolic acid’s effectiveness in hair care applications that include:

  • Revitalizing shampoos
  • Conditioners
  • Detanglers
  • Hair and scalp masks
