What are AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids)?
AHA’s are naturally occurring acids in foods like citrus fruits, nuts and sour milk. The AHA used by Neoteric Cosmetics, Inc is glycolic acid made from sugarcane. The small molecule size makes it more easily absorbed into the skin.
What are the benefits of using Alpha Hydrox products?
Alpha Hydrox and other AHA products are gentler and less irritating to the skin than scrubs and dermabrasions. This allows consumers the ability to use them more often causing the skin to be in a constant state of renewal.
The generally accepted concentration of Glycolic Acid is above 8% and pH levels of between 4 and 4.5. While cosmetic manufacturers are not required to provide concentration information on the label, having the acid listed as the second ingredient on the list shows it contains the proper concentration to be most effective.
Here are just a few of the proven benefits of using a well-formulated product containing Alpha Hydroxy:
- Exfoliates and removes dead skin cells on the surface allowing new, healthy skin to shine through
- Unclogs pores which help to reduce breakouts and blackheads;
- Increases the water content of the skin, improving elasticity and smoothness
- Continues to show results with use over time
Is it Cost-Effective?
This is a savings blog, so at some point I expect that my Keeping Your Cents readers will want to know about the price of the products featured. The Alpha Hydrox Facial line has individual products ranging from $7-$19 and kits ranging from $29-$46. The 2 oz jar of Advanced Cream I received retails for $10.99. I believe that these prices make it an affordable option for most women to add to their beauty regime. There is also the added benefit of subscribing to the savings and coupon newsletter for subscriber only codes.
“At a fraction of the cost of discount and department store brands that aren’t even close to being as effective, Alpha Hydrox will help your skin look & feel younger, fresher, smoother, softer, clearer, more radiant and healthier.” — Neoteric.com

Because I have sensitive skin, I often hesitate to use new products. I also battle with dry skin, so the products I use must moisturize without making my skin greasy. What convinced me to try the Alpha Hydrox cream was that it is fragrance, oil & paraben-free.
The instructions state that it is normal for first time users or those with sensitive skin to experience a small amount of stinging or tingling. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that you do a patch test on the skin just below the jaw line before using on your entire face. If excessive redness, burning or itching occur, please discontinue use of the product, as this could be a sign of allergic reaction.
The light, creamy texture made application easy and only required a small amount to moisturize my skin. To my surprise and delight, I only experienced minimal stinging or tingling after it was applied to my jaw line. My skin felt very soft to the touch long after I administered the cream.
