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.
