What is GAHA® Anti-Aging Serum?
GAHA® Anti-Aging Serum is an advanced formulation containing Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic acid, and added Antioxidants to help fight visible blemishes, wrinkles, improve skin texture and radiance for a clear looking and youthful skin. GAHA® Anti-Aging Serum contains high potent HPPA which works as a pigment corrector and helps in skin lightening making this serum ideal for aging skin.
Anti-aging dark spot corrector face serum is dermatologist validated with an optimal concentration of Glycolic Acid for daily use – visibly reduces dark spots in 2 weeks, reduces wrinkles for younger-looking skin. Face serums are highly concentrated, use potent ingredients, and are lightweight for optimal penetration and visible results – this serum is fragrance-free, paraben-free, dye-free, for all skin types
The Action – this lightweight face serum resurfaces dead skin cells away by gently dissolving what holds them together revealing more even skin.
The Difference – unlike products with high levels of Glycolic Acid that can be harsh on sensitive skin, this breakthrough serum is designed for daily use due to its unique formulation with soothing Ferulic Acid.
How To Use – Apply serum every night to the face and neck, after cleansing, and before your moisturizer – to protect skin from sun exposure.
Key components of GAHA® Anti-Aging Serum
Glycolic Acid – When formulated correctly, and at the optimal concentration level, Glycolic Acid products can work as dark spot correctors to visibly even skin tone and reduce wrinkles. GAHA® Anti-Aging Serum was validated by a panel of dermatologists that certified that the product upholds strict formulation standards and reviewed third-party clinical testing and protocols.
Hyaluronic Acid – can bind up to 1000 times its weight in water! In other words, it functions as a humectant and holds water molecules onto the surface of your skin to keep it nice and hydrated.
Anytime we’re talking about skin that’s well-moisturized, we’re mainly referring to skin that has a lot of water content. Perhaps you’ve heard the term transepidermal water loss, or TEWL for short? This is the scientific term for the measurement of how much water is evaporated from the skin.
When a product prevents TEWL, that means it’s keeping your skin hydrated by making sure that water doesn’t escape from your skin’s surface. Hyaluronic acid does exactly that by slowing the rate at which the water evaporates. Apart from being a very effective hydrator, a couple of studies have also found that it’s very good for healing wounds, too!
HPPA – Hydroxyphenoxy propionic acid is a derivative of hydroquinone. The hydroxy acid part is the ingredient that provides an exfoliating benefit. It also helps reduce the amount of melanin being transferred from the melanocytes to the keratinocytes.
HPPA is an ingredient used in many skin-lightening products but in different quantities. The product works but reduces the production of melanin (the stuff that makes you tan) but the acid part is also slightly exfoliating, acids work better at exfoliating as they remove dead skin evenly unlike traditional kernal scrubs.
Ferulic Acid – Ferulic acid has garnered a lot of interest due to its ability to fight free radicals while also boosting the effectiveness of other antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C, and E. While it’s primarily used in skin care, experts are currently working to see if ferulic acid has other benefits, too.
In skin serums, ferulic acid tends to work well with other antioxidant ingredients. Ferulic acid is thought to help stabilize vitamin C while also increasing its photoprotection. Photoprotection refers to something’s ability to minimize sun damage. A 2005 study suggests that ferulic acid has the potential to offer twice the amount of photoprotection when combined with vitamins C and E. The study’s authors also note that such antioxidant combinations could reduce someone’s risk of future photoaging and, possibly, skin cancer.
