Alpha Hydroxy Acids are a group of naturally occurring acids, primarily found in fruits and vegetables. They work by exfoliating the outer layer of skin, revealing newer, younger-looking skin cells underneath. The most commonly used AHAs in skin care products are glycolic acid (from sugar cane), lactic acid (from milk), citric acid (from lemons), and malic acid (from apples).
