The M.D. FORTE® alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) skin care system is based on two decades of glycolic acid research resulting in products with higher AHA levels than similar products, giving you the strength to deliver beautiful results-without irritation.
AHAs shed, or exfoliate, dead cells of the dry outer layer of the epidermis, which results in the appearance of younger, healthier-looking skin. AHAs also limit transepidermal water loss, thereby improving the skin's moisture-binding ability. Skin that retains more water becomes smoother and younger-looking, and diminishes the effects of sun damage.
