The acid scrub in Turkey & Istanbul is based on methods practised in dermatology, it attacks the dead cells of the epidermis through acidic agents. Among the acids are fruit acids or organic compounds. The choice of these acids is related to the type of skin to avoid the risk of irritation.

Glycolic acid (Alpha Hydroxy Acid or AHA) : It is found in sugar cane, but can be synthesized. This acid is intended for mature skin. It is the anti-aging fruit acid that penetrates deeply into the skin, therefore, it is better to dose to avoid complications.
- Lactic acid (Alpha Hydroxy Acid or AHA) : It originates from the fermentation of milk and it is also found in several fruits or synthesized. It is used by skins lacking luster. It acts mainly on dead cells and surface skin defects.
- Salicylic acid (Beta Hydroxy Acid or BHA) : It originates from the willow but can also be synthesized. It is Intended primarily for oily and imperfect skin. Its main effect is skin cleansing.
