Glycolic Acid is a natural substance derived from sugar cane. It is a member of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid family (AHA). Some of the well known are Citrus Acid from citrus fruit, Lactic Acid from sour milk, Tartaric Acid from wine and Malic Acid from apples. In times past women have used a variety of AHA's to smooth and soften the skin. Cleopatra's legendary smooth and beautiful skin is thought to have attributed to her penchant for milk baths. Camel milk perhaps?
