Glytone was created around a simple concept: provide targeted skin care solutions using the highest levels of free glycolic acid available. The brand began in 1943 as a collaboration between two pharmacists and a dermatologist. Glycolic acid was just beginning to take off as an active ingredient in skin care formulas due to its proven effectiveness. However, most formulations contained a neutralized form of the ingredient, keeping the actual percentages of glycolic acid reaching the skin at a minimum. Glytone adopted free glycolic acid, a truer form that allowed for high, yet safe doses in each formula and even more skin health payoff.
Today, Glytone is known for its glycolic acid-based facial and body care products, as well as its line of quick-acting brightening formulas. Perfect for common conditions like acne, keratosis pilaris, fine lines and dark spots, Glytone products offer maximum results, and the prescription-strength treatments all work synergistically so that customizing the perfect regimen couldn’t be easier. The brand also takes some of the guesswork out of comprehensive care by offering a variety of complete care kits for every need and skin type.

This product is very "active" Although it's not specifically indicated for use on the face. I do use it for once a week face use. It's great on hands and body in particular. I rave about this product for the face because if you use a bit and let it sit for about a minute the improvement in the size of your pores as well as the brightness of your overall skin is truly remarkable. I am now a huge fan of Glytone. Highly recommend.
This is a very "active" product. If you are super sensitive to products this is not the one for you. However, if you want results this is it. I'm over 60 and need to take special care of my hands to reduce spots and smooth my skin - also use in on my heels and feel All I can say is terrific results. I wouldn't recommend using it every day because as I said it works - really works on rough dry skin. I am definitely a believer.
