What is Glycolic acid 70% cas 79-14-1?

Glycolic acid is a natural ingredient derived from sugar cane, though it is now often made synthetically. Glycolic acid has cosmetic grade and pharmaceutical Grade.

It falls into the set of ingredients called AHA’s, or alpha hydroxy acids. There are five ingredients that fall into the AHA category, Mr Bruce Guide to Dermatology explains as: glycolic (sugar cane), lactic (milk), citric (oranges and lemons), malic (apples and pears) and tartaric acids (grapes).

  1. Glycolic acid applicationin pharmaceutical grade:

1>from inside to outside nourish skin, make it smooth and elastic, remove wrinkles.

2>”Natural” shock absorbers reduce inflammation, pain; make each joint, parts of the body more resilient, flexible activities freely.
3> Provide a natural barrier to cells, prevent the bacteria and viruses.

  1. Glycolic acid applicationin cosmetic field grade  

Glycolic acid, because of the small size of its molecules, can easily penetrate the skin. It helps loosen the bonds that hold skin cells together, allowing dead skin cells to slough off more effectively. The skin feels softer and smoother, and its overall appearance is enhanced.

>It can remove the dead cells on the skin and can also be used as depilatory.

2>.Moisturizing skin care.
3> Prevent and repair of skin cell damage.
4>Good lubricity and smooth the skin.

5> Can used for cosmetic material alpha hydroxy acid production.

6> Nourish skin, delay skin aging.


Glycolic Acid’s high water solubility and small molecular size allow it to penetrate deep inside concrete residues and reactfrom within. Because of its less corrosive nature Glycolic Acid can be used on most surfaces and equipment without concerns for etching and damage. In addition, readily biodegradable

Glycolic Acid is easier to dispose of than other cleaning agents such as phosphoric acid or HCl.

Glycolic acid 70% Corrosivity

Solutions at 10% (100% basis) concentrations of Glycolic Acid, phosphoric acid and HCl were tested for corrosion on 1018 carbon steel, 1100 aluminum, 304, and 316 stainless steel.The tests were performed, in triplicate, at 23°C (73°F) for 48 hours with no agitation. The results are the average of the percent weight loss.
