hi..my hands have tanned a little bit..i wondering if i can use aha glow or keracynl as body wash for tan removal?it gently exofoliates right?any suggestions?
Hi Tejupriya, I remember there used to be a glycolic acid AHA body wash from St. Ives. But St. Ives products are no longer available it looks like. Torrent Pharma that makes AHAglow does not list a glycolic acid based body wash in their products.
Another option is Glyaha-Koj soap from Shalaks Pharma. This soap has ingredients to lighten the tan on the skin without using hydroquinone. Its active ingredients include glycolic acid plus lightening agents. If CPP process were to be applied to the body, this would be the soap to go for. It is not advisable to use it for the long term though. Perhaps one bar or just until the tan is gone.
Their Glaha-Koj lotion contains hydroquinone and I don’t think that’s a safe thing to use without consultation with a doctor. The soap looks fine though. Still, checking for any allergic reaction on a skin patch might be better before using it all over.
Also, I don’t see why AHAGlow itself cannot be used all over. Monday’s blog post will be listing more glycolic acid face wash options to choose from.
Glaha-Koj soap ingredients
Active Ingredients: Kojic Acid, Glutathione, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Glycolic Acid
Other Ingredients: Sodium Palmate, Sodium Pal Kernelate, Fragrance, Light liquid Paraffin, Octadecyl Ditbutyl-4-hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Titanium Dioxide, Cocodiethanolamide, Sorbitol, Petroleum Jelly, Citric Acid, Tetrasodium EDTA, BHT, Cl #12740, Purified Wate
AHA based products can cause an itching sensation on the drier parts of the body – just so you know. Moisturizing will be needed.
I will look for st Ives one..I am not gonna use any soap ..I don’t want to irritate skin..my rest part of the body is usually more dry so no risk..i was thinking of trying that vaseline or nivea whitening body lotion..between the user emoticons creative..was this u were talking about yesterday?how did u come up different ones for everybody?
