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.

Favorite am wash
Helps lighten hyperpigmentation spots, gentle exfoliation and reduce acne outbreaks. I do not use this wash at night because of potential retinol deactivation.
I use this on my back and chest to treat acne. It’s not bad but exercising can exacerbate the acne. Also I use on my arms for keratosis pilaris (chicken skin) and it works great. Not too drying or abrasive. Defintely recommend
I have tried so many lighteners and brighteners. So many of them caused irritation, requiring me to apply less frequently and thus I haven't achieved desired results with so many products out there. I was pleasantly surprised that with this Glytone product it caused little to no irritation, and it was actually effective. I'm happy and sticking with this product for now.
