Cosmetics that use AHAs and BHAs

What the heck are they???

AHA, also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid, is commonly found in cosmetic products that offer a more youthful appearance to the skin. Glycolic is from sugar and the lactic acid that comes from milk. The two ingredients are used most in AHA skincare products.

A previous FDA study found that a cosmetic-type cream base may cause AHAs to penetrate more deeply into the skin. However, the FDA has seen the potential for increased skin sensitivity to the sun from using cosmetics containing AHAs.

There is a sunburn alert for Alpha Hydroxy products that states there may be an increase in the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Therefore, you should use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit your exposure to the sun while using this product and for weeks afterward.

BHA stands for beta hydroxy acid and is also known as butylated hydroxyanisole. It is closely related to synthetic antioxidants that are used as preservatives in lipstick and moisturizers. They are also commonly used as food preservatives. The most common BHA used in cosmetics is salicylic acid. Sometimes citric acid is also used as a BHA in cosmetics.

Commonly found in serums, cleansers, and masks. BHAs are oil-soluble and will penetrate deeper into the pores. Best used for dealing with skin issues such as acne and blackheads.

They are an excellent exfoliant and will aid in removing dead skin cells. Helpful in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and pores.

  6. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.


  7. Many thanks for this article. I’d personally also like to talk about the fact that it can always be hard if you find yourself in school and simply starting out to initiate a long credit standing. There are many scholars who are just simply trying to make it through and have a long or positive credit history is often a difficult factor to have.
