Glycolic acid (C2H4O3) is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from plants, such as grapes, sugar beets, and pineapple. It is colorless, odorless, soluble in water, non-volatile, and less flammable. It is widely used as an exfoliant in skincare products, such as cleansers, moisturizers, serums, and face masks, to fight acne, fade hyperpigmentation, remove dead skin cells, and increase the penetration of other ingredients. It is also utilized in leather tanning, fabric dyeing, printing, and textile and metal processing. Besides this, it finds application as an etching agent in oil well operations and a primary ingredient in household cleaning products.
Glycolic acid is used in over-the-counter (OTC) products, such as lotions, sunscreens, and creams, to treat psoriasis, melasma, scarring, skin discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, and seborrheic keratosis. Inflating income levels, the rising influence of social media, and increasing focus on physical appearances are escalating the demand for personal care products worldwide. This represents one of the key factors strengthening the market growth. Apart from this, glycolic acid is employed in the food and beverage (F&B) industry as a preservative, flavoring agent, and adhesive for packaging products. Due to rising environmental concerns, it is also gaining traction in the manufacturing of economic and biodegradable cleaning products for industrial and household applications. Moreover, the leading players are investing in research and development (R&D) activities to enhance product efficacy and effectiveness. This is anticipated to expand the application of glycolic acid in the production of biomedical devices, such as staples, sutures, implants, and meshes.
