Description: Malic acid (MA), a sort of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) found in fruits and many vegetables, has been commonly used in cosmetics and chemical peeling agents . Malic acid is used for light-damaged or dry skin, and acne. Carnosine has been shown to act as an antioxidant by scavenging free radicals and singlet oxygen, thereby reducing oxidative stress. Carnosine can further reduce oxidative stress by chelating transition metals, such as copper and iron.
