Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle: Look at the label

Post image for Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle: Look at the label

This concentrated AHA product is a beauty best seller on Amazon.com. Is it really as concentrated as it says? Let’s look at the label…

Based on the info provided by Amazon.com, it’s unclear how much glycolic acid (the AHA) is really in the product “After 100% pure AHA crystals are liquified for cosmetic use, percentage of AHA is based on a 70% solution.” The label copy also makes reference to the “the 12% AHA solution” in the product. So does this souffle contain 12% glycolic acid, or does it contain 12% of a 70% solution which is really 8.4% glycolic acid?

While glycolic acid products for professional use can be sold at strengths up to 70% (if administered by a physician), products sold to consumers are typically about three to 10%. So it’s important to know if this product is 12% or 8%.

Water, glycolic acid, ammonium hydroxide, cetyl alcohol, propylene glycol, dicaprylyl carbonate, stearic acid, PEG-40 stearate, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, polysorbate 60, steareth 2, hydrolyzed lupine protein (peptides), green tea extract, panthenol (vitamin B5), tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), xanthan gum, PVM/MA decadiene crosspolymer, diazolidinyl urea, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, BHT.
