alpha lipoic acid in skincare

Alpha lipoic acid, a.k.a. ALA, is an important micronutrient with powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Its anti-oxidative properties are so wide-reaching that it's often referred to as the "universal antioxidant." It works in both oil and water environments, unlike many other antioxidants. And, when other antioxidants such as vitamin C or CoQ10 lose their antioxidant capabilities, alpha lipoic acid can recycle and regenerate them.
