The “story” behind the fruit acids
AHAs efficiently remove dead cells from the skin thereby stimulating a more rapid growth of new skin cells. Dead cells actually clog our pores and prevent normal perspiration of the skin, which can lead to serious skin inflammation like acne or skin can lose its natural glow and beauty while wrinkles become more visible with age. Fruit acids, as the name itself suggests, are mostly obtained from fruit, but some lactic acids belong here as well. Some of the most prominent AHA acids come from citrus fruits, apples, wine and sour milk. Interestingly, what was revolutionary in the 90s, was in fact very familiar to the ancient Egyptians. It is common knowledge that Cleopatra took baths in ass milk in order to preserve the beauty of her skin. What she didn’t know was that her skin was soft and elastic thanks to AHA acids. Modern technology, however, used this fruit essence to launch a number of products that could help you get that vibrant skin, so why not use their power?
