Partial neutralization creates a reservoir of glycolic acid molecules that permits both first- and second-phase penetration. Because the glycolic acid is released over an extended period of time, higher concentrations of acid can be used to achieve maximum results. Importantly, partial neutralization also raises the product pH closer to the pH of normal skin, further reducing irritation potential to provide maximum efficacy, minimum irritation, and beautiful results.
