A gel-like, water-binding ingredient found naturally in the skin, Hyaluronic Acid decreases with age.

Glycolic Acid
A high-profile member of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family, Glycolic Acid is a great multi-tasker; not only is it a water-binding agent but an effective exfoliant.

Glycolic Acid fast tracks cellular turnover, helps to clear congestion from the build-up of those dead-skin cells, reboots radiance, and leaves skin smoother and more even. Like we said, a true multi-tasker.
