AHA Eucerin Renewal Day Lotion

Recommended Posts

I’ve noticed that on some posts people have declared that the Eucerin Renewal Day Lotion contains AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid. When I read the ingredient list for the lotion at Walgreens.com the only acid ingredient I see listed is Lactic Acid.

Are Lactic Acid and AHA the same thing?

Oh, Hey

Answered my own question:

To find out if a cosmetic contains an AHA, look on the list of ingredients all cosmetics must, by law, have on their outer packaging. AHA ingredients may be listed as:

glycolic acid

lactic acid

malic acid

citric acid

glycolic acid + ammonium glycolate

alpha-hydroxyethanoic acid + ammonium alpha-hydroxyethanoate

alpha-hydroxyoctanoic acid

alpha-hydroxycaprylic acid

hydroxycaprylic acid

mixed fruit acid

tri-alpha hydroxy fruit acids

triple fruit acid

sugar cane extract

alpha hydroxy and botanical complex

L-alpha hydroxy acid

glycomer in crosslinked fatty acids alpha nutrium (three AHAs). of these, the most frequently used in cosmetics are glycolic acid and lactic acid.
