The skin is the largest organ of the human body because under a microscope it has been shown to regenerate itself on a daily basis. Its main function is to protect the human body from the outside world and it is a barrier. Therefore is very important to exfoliate the outer layer in order for vitamins and nutrients to enter this barrier.

Mechanism of action of Glycolic Acid at the cellular level. Glycolic Acid is the smallest alpha hydroxy acid at a molecular level, and as such, it can penetrate the skin most easily. It causes desquamation as a result of diminished corneocyte cohesion just above the granular cell layer. Dermal effects include increased collagen and glycosaminoglycan production.
Dosage & Administration: In the evening, cleanse skin and pat dry. Apply a few minutes after cleansing ones skin is completely dry. On first use, rinse off after approximately 5 min. If tolerated, contact time may be gradually increased to 30 min. Apply a thin film to a freshly cleansed face and the back of the hands. Apply once weekly, preferably a few days before any engagement. Follow with Cocco Clinique MD LA MicroPumice a day or two days later to polish sloughing.
