Details Ingredients & Additional Information
For Licensed Professional Use Only
This is 70% pure Glycolic Acid.
It must be diluted to appropriate concentrations
for skin care application by a licensed professional.
Concentrations in products greater than 10%
with a pH of 3.5 or less are considered
professional strength and are intended to be sold
and used only by licensed professionals.

FDA recommends that the labeling of a cosmetic product that contains an AHA as an ingredient and that is topically applied to the skin or mucous membrane, such as the lips, bear a statement that conveys the following information:
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
Based on industry-sponsored studies, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel — the industry's self-regulatory body for reviewing the safety of cosmetic ingredients concluded that products containing the AHAs glycolic are safe for use by consumers only if:
The AHA concentration is 10 percent or less.
The final product has a pH of 3.5 or greater.
The final product is formulated in such a way that it protects the skin from increased sun sensitivity or its package directions tell consumers to use daily protection from the sun.
The challenge of a subjective response from customers related to the "feel" and "sensitivity" associated with using any product, is that it is difficult to narrow this down to one variable that may be altering their perception or altering its effect.

Variables that may influence this include:
1. The pH of the skin can change slightly or dramatically over the course of a week, month or year.
2. The amount of oil on the skin can affect acid penetration and absorption.
3. The use of other products on the skin, including make up, soap and moisturizers can alter absorption.
3. The amount and frequency of use can alter perception of activity.
3. The health of the customer and any medical conditions they may have, can alter absorption and perception.
4. Drugs and medications can interact with skin applications and alter their effect.
5. Slight variations in natural formulations (<1%), as well as in the amount applied on the skin may affect the "feel" the customer reports.
6. Repeated and continuous use can create a desensitization to the "feel" of the product on the skin.
(This is exactly why professional peels can be done in increasing increments, because the patient builds up a sensation tolerance.)

All these variables may affect the client's subjective perception of the products performance.
This perception information is not an accurate means of checking effectiveness of the product, nor is it reliable.
Base on the above variables, obviously we can not guarantee that you will "feel as if the product is working".
We can only guarantee that the product we ship out to you will have a pH that is 0.2 - 0.5, which is per the formulation standards set for this product and that the product has been tested and meets all QA criteria for the formulation.

Additional facts about Glycolic Acid
Glycolic Acid does not create or become a new or different molecule over time. So, it does not change into something else as it ages. It can only degrade over a long period of time (several years), losing its effectiveness when exposed to atmospheric changes. (Temps greater than 140 F and lower then 68 F)
Glycolic acid is stable and will not degrade when stored in an unopened container in ambient temps up to 140 F.
Glycolic acid may precipitate when stored below 68 F. However, the material will fall back into solution when heated to 104 F with agitation. This will not affect performance or pH.
Glycolic Acid may create a dimer (glycolide) when heated/stored above 140 F. If the dimer is created, the material will lose acidity affecting the pH.
Although all products are required to list a shelf life, Glycolic acid does not really have a defined shelf life and can maintain its pH indefinitely if stored properly.
This is a natural sourced product and the color and odor will vary with each lot.
The effect of this product varies based on the final product thickness, pH and concentration. The pH, thickness and time since last exposure of the skin to which it is being applied along with contact time and frequency.
