Abstractα-Hydroxy acid (AHA) peels and home regimens have recently been recognized as important adjunctive therapy in a variety of conditions including photodamage, actinic damage, melasma, hyperpigmentation disorders, acne, and rosacea. Overall in our experience and in the literature, AHAs have a proven level of safety and efficacy in a variety of skin types. Although their exact mechanism of action is unknown, it has been demonstrated that AHAs improve these disorders by thinning the stratum… Expand

pH-Dependent Antibacterial Activity of Glycolic Acid: Implications for Anti-Acne Formulations
TLDR
The findings support the potential of developing anti-acne formulations with glycolic acid concentrations as low as 0.2% and with pH conditions that are suitable for over-the-counter applications, and identify that the nonionic form of gly colic acid is more active than the anionic form. Expand
Transdermal Penetration of Topical Drugs Used in the Treatment of Acne
