Similar to beta-lipohydroxy acid, lipo hydroxy acid (LHA) is a part of the hydroxy acid family. In the cosmetic industry, LHA is also known as Capryloyl Salicylic Acid. In relation to BHA, LHA’s structure is more lipophilic or fat-dissolving. LHA skin care products allow for gentle exfoliation by weakening bonds between the cells of the surface layer of the stratum corneum. It also possesses astringent properties that further enable better skin protection. Combining its exfoliating and astringent properties, LHA can be commonly found in facial cleansing products for its ability to improve skin clarity.
