Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Alpha Hydroxy Acid is the process of adding water-soluble ingredients to skin care products that promote the rapid shedding of dead cells, delivering a smooth, youthful radiance to the skin.  This seminar includes the history of the process, the chemical composition of all six AHAs, and instruction on skin renewals, exfoliations and more.

AHAs exfoliate the skin and allow products to more deeply penetrate to the lower layers of the skin, deeply nourishing your client’s skin.  They improve the firmness and tone of the skin, while leaving it glowing with vitality and youth.
