Introducing the gentlest acid out there. Neither an AHA nor a BHA, phytic acid -pronounced faytek- is an antioxidant.. When infused into skincare creams, it helps fend off skin-aging culprits and recently it has been added to many creams for its amazing benefits..
What Does Phytic Acid Offer Your Skin?
#1 it’s great for those with sensitive skin or those with rosacea.
#2 Its antioxidant properties fend off skin-aging free radicals.

#5 Lightens pigmentation caused by melasma.
