Malic Acid

157 results

Malic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that the cells of your body make naturally every day. It's also found in fruits and vegetables (most notably in apples). Malic acid is credited with boosting the immune system, improving oral health and balancing internal pH levels. Malic acid is also known for a host of skin benefits, such as improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

That's because malic acid promotes the shedding of the outer layer of skin cells, exfoliating away buildup and pore-clogging impurities. Alpha hydroxy acids also penetrate the skin to support collagen production, restoring skin vitality, suppleness and elasticity. Malic acid improves hyperpigmentation by decreasing the production of melanin. For these reasons, malic acid is a popular ingredient in many anti-aging skin care products.

Dermstore's curated collection of physician-strength skin care products include many cleansers, creams, lotions, serums and masks that feature malic and other alpha hydroxy acids.
