A-Hydroxy Acid Test

α-hydroxy acids (AHAs) constitute a category of organic acids distinguished by the presence of a hydroxyl group on a carbon atom adjacent to a carboxylic acid group. These compounds possess the ability to effectively stimulate skin cells, which is why they are favored in cosmetics.

Cosmetics containing AHAs offer a multitude of benefits, including the reduction of fine lines and superficial wrinkles, enhancements in skin texture and tone, the unclogging of pores, and overall improvements in skin condition.

Some common AHAs

However, it's noted that cosmetic products containing AHAs for topical application can render the skin more sensitive to sunlight during usage and for a period of up to one week after discontinuation. This heightened sensitivity makes individuals more prone to sunburn.

Moreover, AHAs may induce allergic reactions for some people, resulting in symptoms like redness, swelling, itching, or other allergic responses.
