Glycolic Acid is the reference exfoliating agent for dry and normal skin. It belongs to the family of the so-called Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA), which have the ability to act on the epidermis, penetrating deep into the skin and deeply cleansing the pores.
In the case of wanting to correct acne or if you have oily / combination skin, the recommended exfoliant in this case would be Salicylic Acid.

· Glycolic Acid
Known as: Glycolic Acid
Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that, once in contact with the skin, reacts with the surface of the epidermis, where it begins to exfoliate dead skin, inducing the peeling of old skin in the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) and revealing the appearance of new skin.
It helps reduce acne, as it has a small molecular weight that capable of penetrating the skin better and reach the small and large pores where it is able to remove any keratinocytes present.
Also, it can help in many skin problems such as hyperpigmentation and age spots due to skin exfoliation.
Known as: Alpha Bisabolol
It is the main constituent of camomile essential oil. It has a soothing effect on the skin and can improve the penetration of other active ingredients.
Principalmente lo utilizaba para los poros y para el acné. Pero depués de informarme vi que tenía muchos mas usos como por ejemplo tratar arrugas y la piel dañada por el sol. En la caja dice que puede ser irritante pero no en mi caso
