While reading the labels and ingredients of skincare products, have we ever come across some terms we do not know? For example, AHA, BHA, and PHA: what are they and what is the difference?
In the formulation of skincare products there are often different types of acids that have different functions and act differently on the skin. Let’s see in detail what acids we are talking about and their benefits on the face.
Our skin is made up of several layers, the most external is the corneum, where dead cells are found, and it is continually renewed by eliminating these cells from the surface. This process usually happens every 30 days.
However, starting from the age of 25 when hormonal decay begins, this process slows down more and more, and wrinkles begin to appear, tone and firmness are lost, and the skin appears duller and rougher.
This is why acids come into play to increase the renewal mechanism, eliminating dead cells from the surface, obtaining a more uniform, smooth, and revitalized face. Basically, it is an exfoliation thanks to the action of these acids: AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids), BHA (beta-hydroxy acids), and PHA (polyhydroxy acids).
It is essential to know more about the ingredients that make up the skincare products we use, in order to know their effects and their benefits on the skin.
Some of the AHA, BHA, and PHA acids are present in our products, such as hyaluronic acid with a moisturizing and anti-aging effect, and lactic acid with a smoothing, exfoliating, astringent, pH regulator, emollient, and humectant action present in Hyper Moisturizing Serum by Lagalene.
On the other hand, in the Multi-sense Treatment Complex, there is citric acid present in citrus fruits, in particular in lemon juice, which has a smoothing action on the skin.
Last but not least, the latest generation reticular type hyaluronic acid with a very low molecular weight, the Hyalomatrix, contained in the Ultra Intensive Care Treatment, with a plumping and moisturizing effect that gives an immediate 3D effect on the skin.
Let’s be very clear about the content of skincare products, our face is our business card and we must take care of it in the best way, to have healthy, luminous, toned, and compact skin!
Now that we know better what they are and what is the difference between AHA, BHA, and PHA acids, let’s make the right choices and select the best of our skincare products for our beauty routine!
