Benefits :

The mechanism of action of AHA’s is to bind to cell adhesion molecules and reduce the calcium ion concentration thus disrupting cellular adhesion. This results in the desquamation (shedding) of the outermost layer of skin. The reduction of calcium ion levels also promotes cell growth and retardation of cellular differentiation therefore giving rise to younger-looking skin. ABS Apple AHA’s are primarily recommended for exfoliation and cellular renewal applications. ABS Apple AHA’s contain apple extracts, when blended with malic, glycolic, lactic, and citric acids provide a potent combination for the proper exfoliation of dead skin cells, to create a noticeable improvement in the skin’s texture and appearance.

Scarlet O’Hara, Rambo, Malinda, Red Baron, Red Delicious, Jonathan, Golden Earl, Pink lady, Royal Gala and Finkenwerder Herbstprinz. At first glance, this looks like a list of famous and not-so-famous names. Actually, believe it or not, these are the names of some cultivated apple varieties. Most are familiar with common supermarket cultivars such as Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Fiji, and McIntosh. Over the years, more and more people are choosing to adopt healthier lifestyles by including apples as part of their diets, thus supporting the old adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away1.” The numerous apple varieties are as seemingly endless as their uses. The growing popularity of apples has lead to its usage outside of the food industry. Apples are now utilized in cancer prevention research and in cosmetic and personal care applications. The significance of apples in personal care products has been attributed to the presence of an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), malic acid, which promotes the appearance of healthier-looking and smoother-feeling skin.
