A combination of Alpha-hydroxy acids, Beta-hydroxy-acids and Poly-hydroxy acids has become popular for treating acne vulgaris in last few years. The main objective of this research study is to evaluate the efficacy & safety of combination of these acids in the treatment of acne vulgaris. The study was conducted on 12 volunteers having mild to moderate to severe acne. They were divided into 3 groups according to the severity of their facial acne. Members of each group were treated with a series of 30% AHA, 2% BHA and 7% PHA. The improvement in their acne condition as well as skin texture was assessed over a period of 6 weeks.
