What is Glycolic Acid Cream?

Glycolic acid, additionally called glycolic acid in addition to glycolic acid, is likewise an essential all-natural synthesis intermediate as well as also chemical item, extensively used in organic synthesis, cleansing, electroplating, fabric, leather, sanitation and also other industries. Over the last few years, scientific research has discovered that glycolic acid polymers are naturally degradable, which solves the issue of challenging degradation of standard plastic products and also can be extensively utilized in medicine, product packaging as well as numerous various other areas.

Glycolic Acid Cream Application

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.

Cosmetic application
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.

Glycolic Acid Cream Uses

1. Chemical cleaning: 70% glycolic acid choice is typically taken advantage of as a cleaner, 2% glycolic acid along with 1% formic acid combined acid is a cleaner with high performance and likewise cost-effective, and also can be used as air conditioning system, central heating boiler, power plant pipe, condensers, warm exchangers, and so on as the key cleaning basic materials.

2. Environment-friendly products: commonly utilized in the preparation of implanted sustained-release drug systems, implanted fixing solution gadgets, bioabsorbable clinical stitches, synthetic bone and additionally organ items, and so forth, and have superb development prospects. Polylactic acid and also polyglycolic acid have actually come to be the focus of development in the field of brand-new materials.

3. Bactericide: Since glycolic acid contains an one-of-a-kind structure of hydroxyl as well as carboxyl groups, it can create a hydrophilic chelate with metal cations via a sychronisation bond, so it has a considerable repressive effect on the growth of iron-oxidizing germs and also can be used as a fungicide. It can likewise be utilized as an inhibitor in various ore flotation security.

4. Daily-use chemicals: 99% glycolic acid is a reliable representative for removing dead skin and fine hair. It can be made use of to manufacture anti-aging and whitening cosmetic raw material fruit acids, which can attain the outcomes of moistening, moisturizing the skin in addition to advertising skin renewal. The molecular weight of Glycolic Acid Lotion is truly small, it can properly pass through the skin pores, as well as additionally fix skin aging, wrinkles, dark locations, acne and also different other concerns quickly, so it is with one voice applauded by the clinical appeal industry.

5. Electroplating surface area therapy: Glycolic Acid Lotion can furthermore be made use of in the electroplating industry. Glycolic acid sodium salt as well as also potassium salt can be made use of as electroplating active ingredients, together with environment-friendly chemical basic materials for electroplating grinding, steel pickling, natural leather dyeing along with tanning agents. Glycolic acid is also a complexing agent for electroless nickel plating. It has the advantages of corrosion resistance, fast action as well as superb coating. It is one of the most efficient sources for boosting the quality of electroless nickel plating.

On top of that, Glycolic Acid Cream can be utilized in the textile market as a crosslinking combining representative for dyeing in addition to finishing woollen fibers along with cellulose products or as a crosslinking catalyst for carboxyl-containing fiber textiles; it can additionally be utilized as a glue, petroleum demulsifier, welding agent and also layer Active active ingredients as well as synthesis of different medications, chemicals as well as chemical ingredients, and more.

Glycolic Acid Cream Preparation

A kind of technique of producing glycolic acid by methyl glycolate, comprises the steps:
1) Add methyl glycolate and water to the rectification tower with a molar ratio of 1:5-30, and under the action of a resin-based solid acid catalyst, vacuumize to 10-101kPaA, and heat until the liquid in the tower and kettle boils. The boiling temperature is 80-85°C. Reactive distillation is carried out. During the reaction process, the boiling temperature of the liquid in the tower and kettle is kept constant, and the methanol condensate is continuously recovered from the top of the tower. After 10-30 minutes of total reflux, the reflux ratio is adjusted to 0.5-3. The reaction time is 2 to 6 hours, and the glycolic acid aqueous solution is extracted from the tower kettle;
2) evaporating and concentrating the glycolic acid aqueous solution obtained in step 1), and increasing the mass content of glycolic acid in the glycolic acid aqueous solution to 70-90wt%;
3) decolorized to colorless;
4) crystallize the product obtained in step 3), precipitate crystalline glycolic acid, filter and separate glycolic acid crystals, rinse, and vacuum dry to obtain finished glycolic acid crystals;
5) Concentrate the filtrate in step 4) directly or mix it with the glycolic acid aqueous solution obtained in step 1), and then concentrate, repeat steps 2) to 4), and recycle.
