Did you know that Glycolic Acid is widely considered to be the gold standard for achieving radiant, glowing skin? However, in the past, higher Glycolic Acid concentrations could result in skin irritation making nightly use difficult for many skin types.
SkinCeuticals, renowned as ‘The Antioxidant Authority’, and a leader in advanced skincare technology, have created a nightly corrective cream that delivers a true 10% Glycolic Acid to the skin for a quantifiable glow, without the irritation.
Through formulation expertise, SkinCeuticals has been able to stabilise and deliver a true 10% Glycolic Free Acid value (FAV). FAV describes the actual acid availability in the formula to work on skin based on two factors; acid concentration, and pH. Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight is formulated at a 14.6% acid concentration with a pH of 3.5 to deliver a true 10% active level.
Glycolic Acid is the smallest alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), and its ability to penetrate the skin enables it to promote excellent cellular turnover to reveal newer, more luminous skin. New Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight is formulated with an optimum glycolic acid percentage of 10%, and is scientifically proven to provide a professional grade result, that is also well tolerated by the skin. The results are visible within one week – smoother, younger looking skin that imparts an enviable glow.”

CELLURAL TURNOVER TO BOOST RADIANCE
The smallest molecule of the alpha hydroxy acids, glycolic acid, weakens the bonds that bind dead cells to the skin’s surface. The release of these dead cells promotes cellular turnover, which helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and reveals brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
Research shows that 10% Glycolic Acid is the ideal concentration to promote skin glow while maintaining tolerability for nightly use.
Anti-ageing Benefits While You Sleep
Through extensive research and testing, SkinCeuticals found that Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight’s 10% Glycolic Free Acid blended with additional brightening and skin soothing ingredients, successfully targets fine lines, dullness, and uneven texture.
With continued use, Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight can improve the absorption of other skincare products. As part of a night time regimen, the Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight cream can be paired with other moisturisers in the SkinCeuticals corrective portfolio, to tackle multiple visible skin concerns.
In the morning, use a daytime Vitamin C serum such as CE Ferulic or Phloretin CF and a sunscreen to brighten and protect skin.
