Frequently AHAs and BHAs are used for exfoliation. However, they must be used at a highly acidic pH for maximum results and so , they may irritate the skin.

KeratoliteTM is a standard ProtacidTM.
In KeratoliteTM, as a result of the combination with almond proteins, malic acid remains on the surface to better target dead cells without penetrating living layers (ex vivo data ).
