Because of its ability to effectively loosen cells from the outer layer of skin, glycolic acid is a powerful treatment for many types of skin care conditions. From eliminating dark spots on the complexion to decreasing the depth of wrinkles, glycolic acid treatments can produce a number of positive changes that greatly improve the texture and tone of the skin. Unfortunately, many people find that traditional glycolic acid treatments are too harsh for their complexions and suffer from redness, stinging and dryness after using products that contain the natural acid. The Gly Derm skin care collection was developed as an alternative to traditional treatments and can allow you to enjoy the benefits of glycolic acid even if you have delicate skin.

Gly Derm Customer ReviewsThe Best Masque to Clean your Face - 3/24/2013 3:37:26 PM This is a staple skin care product I have used for many years and will not be without. This is such a easy masque and I have found that it is most effective by using it in the following way: 1) Make sure skin has been cleansed and is damp. 2) shake the tube of masque to be sure the masque is mixed well inside the tube. 3) Then squeeze about 1/2" of the masque from the tube and apply a thin layer of the masque to your damp face (it is very important to focus on the T zone but I use it all over my face and upper neck, avoiding the eye area). 4) let masque dry for about 20 min. 5) Stand over your sink and gently RUB the masque off your face and nose and neck (use circular motions) and particles of the masque (along with dead skin cells) will come off into your sink. 6) when you have finished rubbing the masque off your face and neck, wash and tone your face and neck again to be sure all of the masque has been removed -- and then apply a moisturizer or night cream. This is the easiest way to clean, exfoliate and brighten your face and I use this masque 3+ times a week. This masque also helps control blackheads and whiteheads.Best Gentle Ever - 1/29/2013 6:26:46 AM I have use Gly Derm Gentle Wash for Years, I would not use anything else.Love this stuff! - 8/16/2012 8:11:21 AM I don't like spending a lot on things like basic cleansers, but nothing does as good a job of getting the NYC grime off of my face at the end of the day without drying out my skin or leaving it feeling dry AND not quite clean. I have very oily skin, and in the past was a huge fan of scrubs to make my skin feel truly clean. Now I use retinoids, which are great, but also have a tendency to make my skin very sensitive. The glycolic acid in glyderm basically has the same effect as a mild scrub, without the redness/dryness that can come with that. My skin is super soft and clean feeling afterwards, but not dried out and tight. I highly recommend it!- 8/4/2012 10:40:23 AM I have been using Gly Derm Hydrotone & Gentle wash for over 10 years. I would not think of using anything else. I use it morning and evenings. It keeps my skin looking fresh and soft.Super for my mature skin - 2/1/2012 1:54:15 PM As you apply Max you can visibly see the cream on your face for a few seconds....feels like new skin being smoothed over the old skin....stays supple.Better than RetinA - 1/21/2012 11:53:05 AM Doctors recommend glycolics for skin like mine that can't tolerate RA. I haven't been using it for very long, but it does leave my skin less oily, exfoliated and soft. I'm looking forward to even better results in weeks to come. I'm nearing 60 and have pretty good skin, but of course it can use any help I can afford to give it. I like this product very much.This Stuff Works!! - 12/22/2011 8:20:14 AM I'd been going through a series of chemical peels due to roughness & hyperpigmentation that I couldn't get under control myself--the dark spots were DEEP. Even though peels were working they are brutal on the skin, keep you in the house for days at a time & can re-bound even darker on Black skin. I started to think back to when my skin was clear and remembered I used a Gly Derm glycolic years ago but had run out and never got more. Gly Derm's new 12% cream is fantastic. The results are immediate but gentle--it gives you a full layer peel w/ ea use w/o redness or rawness. After 2 wks EO night my skin is pink, glowing, smooth & dark spots are lifting!!! Just get it!!!a good little clean-up - 9/22/2011 9:11:16 AM I like to use this product to boost my Gly Derm gentle cleanser a couple of time a week. I wish the had a stronger one.Best result lotion - 7/31/2011 8:31:57 AM You can see the effect of the lotion. After one month, your skin will break out. It is the effect of the lotion to push your dirt from your skin. Then, your skin will look very smooth, whiten, black head and white head gone. Very very good result. Only one problem is you need to mix with other lotion when you apply for the first month, because the AHA is so strong. After your skin get used to the AHA, you can apply the lotion directly to your skin.great stuff - 4/24/2011 12:35:23 PM I've been using this product for years. I have Rosecea and this product is so gentle that I never experience redness when using it. Also it really cleans well.
Learn More About Gly Derm
Gly Derm products contain glycolic acid that has been esterified, making it less abrasive. In clinical studies, high doses of esterified glycolic acid have been proven to be far less irritating than similar doses of the alpha hydroxy acid in its raw state. As a result, Gly Derm products offer maximum effectiveness with a lower risk of side effects.
Traditionally, dermatologists and plastic surgeons have had to exercise caution when recommending glycolic acid treatments due to the potent nature of the ingredient. Although derived from sugarcane and other natural substances, glycolic acid is very powerful and in raw forms has been known to cause irritation and even scarring in some users. As a result, glycolic acid treatments were once reserved for only a select few people, leaving many to settle for less effective treatments.
Because of the unique esterification process through which Gly Derm products are made, the molecules of glycolic acid present in the formulas are powerful yet extremely gentle at the same time. More than 1.5 million people have used Gly Derm products as a part of their daily regimens, yet there has never been a single reported case of scarring associated with the formulas. Still, over 90 percent of users buy Gly Derm products more than once because of their benefits. It is this perfect combination of safety and effectiveness that has made Gly Derm a leader in skin care and that has prompted more than 2,500 dermatologists, plastic surgeons and estheticians worldwide to offer their glycolic acid products to patients and clients.
Gly Derm offers a complete range of glycolic skincare formulas, providing maximum benefits for the skin. By combining the daily cleansers, toners and moisturizers with the treatments, eye products and masks intended for your concerns, you can address a multitude of imperfections from acne to signs of aging to skin discoloration.
