Alpha hydroxy acids - what happened?

Gina_WJuly 8, 2003

They were everywhere at one point but looks like all the makers have moved on to other ingredients to market.

Problem is, I liked AHA. It kept my skin smooth. Now everything has the highly comedogenic oxy-cinnamate type ingredient. They create the little hard white comedones on my skin. Anyone know of a good, light AHA cream still available besides the $70 Estee Lauder Fruition?

Walgreen drug stores still have AH creams.

I haven't looked lately but CVS Drug (used to be Rexall) had it 6 months ago. I like their brand because it's 8% AH.

Well, I bought Neutrogena Healthy Skin with sunscreen and AHAs. It explicitly says non-comedogenic, so keeping my fingers crossed.

Kiss My Face makes two AHA products that I know of: Peaches & Creme Moisturizer in the 16 oz. pump, and an 8% version in a 4 oz. pump. I use the latter about once a week, and the bottle lasts a long time.

Just curious----is 8% the highest amount you can get without a prescription? Thanks.

I just did a "Google" search for "Alpha Hydroxy Acid Treatment Opinions" and came up with a site whose address is http://www.scar-wrinkle.com/overallscore_wrinkle_scar.htm
(sorry I don't know how to do a link). Anyway that particular site lists quite a few products and where to get them along with a scoring system as which are the top rated. Seems like a product called Complex-C by DAK comes out the winner.

Big Lots usually has it, too.

A report on Neutrogena Healthy Skin with sunscreen and AHA: it's done absolutely nothing for my skin. I'll look for something else this weekend and report back.

I bought Kiss My Face peaches-and-cream lotion with AHA and have used it for 2 weeks now. I like it so far. First of all it smells heavenly - they capture the smell of a fresh peach amazingly well - it almost makes you drool! My skin feels smoother, no more new comedones and the older ones are coming up by themselves. And the lotion is so cheap and the bottle so big I've been using it on my legs, elbows and feet too. I think I'll get a couple more bottles.
