The role in daily chemical cleaning
Glycolic Acid Cream has a good dissolving ability for alkaline earth metal scales, and has a strong effect on compounds such as calcium and magnesium, and the solubility of calcium glycolate and magnesium in water is relatively high, so glycolic acid is suitable for cleaning calcium and magnesium salt scales. It can also react with iron corrosion products. If the scale accounts for a large proportion, a mixed acid with a mass fraction of 2% glycolic acid + 1% formic acid can be used instead. Since glycolic acid is an organic acid, it has very low corrosion to materials, and there is no precipitation of organic acid iron and no chloride ions during cleaning. It is also suitable for cleaning austenitic steel materials, and because its formation is volatile, a small amount of residue remains It is also harmless in the equipment. Therefore, chemical cleaning with glycolic acid is less dangerous and more convenient to operate. In addition, glycolic acid can also be used for cleaning wells, dairy equipment, and masonry materials. It can also be used as a cleaning agent for printed circuit boards, and used to enhance the luster of copper utensils, etc.
Synthetic Biodegradable New Materials
Glycolic Acid Cream can be used to produce polylactic-glycolic acid. Polylactic acid-glycolic acid (PLGA) is an important biodegradable material with unique properties such as non-toxic, biocompatible, and degradable in vivo and in vitro. It is widely used in suture reinforcement materials, surgical sutures, and drug sustained release carriers. , tissue engineering and other medical polymer fields. At present, there are many researches on this material at home and abroad. Glycolic acid, the raw material for organic synthesis, can be used as raw material to synthesize some important chemical products, such as hydrogenation to ethylene glycol and glyoxylic acid.
Applications in Dermatology
Glycolic Acid Cream is the simplest of α-hydroxy acids, it only contains two carbon atoms, it can easily penetrate into the skin, and it is very beneficial for the treatment of skin diseases. Glycolic acid has a good effect on acne, age spots, warts, and eliminating wrinkles.
Glycolic Acid Cream has a small molecular weight, strong penetrating power, and stable absorption, so it has the best effect. Currently, it is most commonly used in skin care and skin peeling to moisturize, moisturize the skin, and promote epidermal renewal. It can effectively penetrate skin pores and solve skin aging, wrinkles, dark spots, acne and other problems in a short time.
Glycolic Acid Cream can remove accumulated keratin, unblock the pilosebaceous glands, accelerate skin renewal, and promote the proliferation of elastic fibers, collagen, mucopolysaccharides, and hyaluronic acid in the dermis. It also has the effect of improving pigmentation, scars, and pores, so Suitable for the treatment of acne erythema scars.
But we should pay attention to:
After using Glycolic Acid Cream, the skin will feel tingling and red. Therefore, sunscreen care is required after the dandruff peels off. We often think of glycolic acid as a topic acid, which means it doesn’t usually cause allergic reactions. But redness, swelling, and extreme dryness can also occur.
