AHA and BHA: Definition
AHA stands for Alpha-Hydroxyl Acid and BHA stands for Beta-Hydroxyl Acid.
Both are acids with exfoliating properties that are known to remove dead cells that build up on the surface of the skin. AHAs and BHAs actually help gently remove dead skin cells to make room for new healthy cells.
When the treatment is enriched with AHA or BHA, the solution will work on its own on the surface of the skin upon application, there is no need even for rubbing as there is for exfoliation!
Found in serums, revitalizing lotions, and creams, these powerful active ingredients have an effect on blemishes (goodbye to pimples and blackheads), but also on wrinkles and fine lines. Result: skin becomes brighter and less dull.
• The AHA Soluble in water (in water). They act only on the surface of the skin and are intended to stimulate and maintain skin hydration. Its antioxidant effect helps reduce fine lines and enhance skin radiance. They are essential to help dry, dull skin regain its natural glow.

• The BHA soluble in fats. So it works on the surface of the skin and deep in the pores. The fact that it is fat-soluble helps remove the worst and smoothes the texture of the skin while removing blemishes and blackheads thanks to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action. They are the best allies for combination to oily skin for a clear and healthy complexion.
