Is It Safe To Mix Serum Containing AHA With Alevero?
Is it OK if aha is mixed with Aloeevera? And what is meant by the aha content of 30% in the serum?
Thank you for the question.
AHA orualpha-hydroxy acids are types of acids that are often used in beauty products such as beauty creams, serums, toners, and peels. AHA can be beracacitric acid, glycolic acid, hydroxycaproic acid, hydroxycaprylic acid, lactic acid, malic acid, maupuntartaric acid. Most of the AHa that is sold is free of glycolic acid or acidic acid. AHAs are usually used for skin exfoliation, and can also be used to increase collagen production, help reduce scars, wrinkles, prevent acne, and brighten the face.
30% AHA content means that there is a 30% AHA concentration in a product. However, the recommended AHA concentration is less than 10-15%, and if above that concentration, it is recommended to be used only occasionally, to prevent side effects such as skin erosion and irritation, as well as eczema. In addition, related to the administration of aloe vera, AHA can be mixed for aloe vera and it is recommended, because the content of aloe vera can moisturize the skin and can reduce the side effects of AHA which can irritate the skin.
Hopefully this information can help.
