Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy 50ml
With a unique Hydroxy formulation, Alpha and the Beta Hydroxy Acids have been blended to have a cosmetic resurfacing effect so dramatic that with regular use, it has even been likened to a chemical peel.
This precise combination of Hydroxy acids has been carefully balanced so that the beautiful, smoothing effect happens cumulatively - over a number of weeks - without excessively harsh irritation to the skin.
- Thoroughly clean your face and pat dry.
- Smooth a thin, even layer of Gamma Hydroxy cream over your face, neck, hands or anywhere you wish to improve the appearance of your skin.
- You may feel a slight tingling - any more severe sensation and you should discontinue use.
- Follow with daily or nightly moisturiser
Glycolic acid – an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), commonly known as a ‘fruit acid’ occurs naturally in sugar cane juice. It is considered to be the most effective AHA because it has a small molecular structure allowing it to penetrate the surface of the skin more readily.
Lactic Acid - another AHA, derived from sour milk and grain.
Salicylic Acid - a Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), encourages the sloughing of dead skin cells but also has the ability to penetrate into the pore. This advantage makes it very effective for improving blemishes, by breaking down blackheads and whiteheads, and clearing clogged pores.

Belongs to the class Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), commonly known as fruit acids and occurs naturally in sugar cane juice. It is considered to be the most effective AHA because it has a small molecular structure allowing it to penetrate the surface of the skin more readily.
Also a type of AHA and is derived from sour milk and grain. Its benefits to the skin have been well documented for centuries even Cleopatra's beautiful skin is attributed to her bathing in milk.
Both Glycolic and Lactic Acids work by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. Through this microscopic exfoliation activity, these AHAs smooth the skins texture problems including acne, fine wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin expressions. They also have the fantastic benefit of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating collagen and skin growth cycle.
Classed as Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), this type of acids can be a little milder than AHAs, but this doesnt mean they are less potent. In fact, while BHAs essentially work the same as AHAs, they have certain talents that AHAs dont have. Salicylic Acid encourages the sloughing of dead skin cells as AHAs do, but it also has the ability to penetrate into the pore, while AHAs do not. This advantage makes it very effective for improving blemishes, by breaking down blackheads and whiteheads, and clearing clogged pores.
