our story

Rooted in Glycolic Acid

In 1943, two pharmacists collaborated with a dermatologist and utilized Glycolic Acid to create new product formulations that would improve the appearance of skin.

By 1984, the benefits of Glycolic Acid in skin care were proven, but the market was primarily comprised of neutralized Glycolic Acid products. This led to the differentiation and innovation of Free Acid Value technology.

The Glytone brand was born in 1992, established with the name inspired by its core founding ingredient, "Glycolic Acid" and its ability to improve the "tone" of skin.

Today, Glytone is a leader in the use of active acids that provide targeted and transforming solutions for skin health.


As a market pioneer in the use of active acids to refine skin, Glytone provides the most comprehensive yet simple systems for creating radiant, beautiful skin.

Transforming skin for over 25 years

With decades of visible results from carefully crafted formulations, Glytone knows just what professionals and their patients need for healthy skin.
