Glycolic acid review

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

CTFA is asking the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) to hasten its consideration of the safety of glycolic acid because of FDA's concern regarding alpha hydroxy acids, particularly when used at high concentrations ("The Rose Sheet" April 11, p. 1). CTFA also is requesting that CIR look at the commonly used salts and esters of glycolic acid as well as citric and lactic acids and their salts and esters. CIR would have reviewed glycolic acid beginning in 1995
