Clinical Data

The Difference Between Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acid

There is only one beta hydroxyl acid Ė salicylic acid. The main difference between alpha hydroxyl acids and beta hydroxyl acid is their lipid (oil) solubility. Alpha hydroxyl acids are water soluble only, while beta hydroxyl acid is lipid (oil) soluble. This means that beta hydroxyl acid is able to penetrate into the pore. Because of this difference in properties, beta hydroxyl acid is better used on oily skin with blackheads and whiteheads. Alpha hydroxyl acids are better used on thickened, sun-damaged skin where breakouts are not a problem. Alpha hydroxyl acids work best in a concentration of 5% to 8% and at a pH of 3 to 4.

Vitamin E

One of the most important benefits of vitamin E is the prevention of skin cancer. This occurs because of its sun protection quality and of course its powerful antioxidant properties, which help reduce or prevent sun damage.

Other benefits

There are a variety of other benefits of vitamin E for skin care:

  • vitamin E products help reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • vitamin E can help reduce the appearance of age spots
  • it helps maintain the skinís oil balance during the cleansing process
  • it reduces transepidermal water loss from skin and strengthens the skinís barrier function

Overall for skin care, more benefit is obtained from topical application of vitamin E through creams or lotions rather than taking vitamin E orally. Skin is able to absorb natural vitamin E effectively. However, taking vitamin E orally is important for the good health of other areas of the body.
