Cane + Austin
CANE + AUSTIN began in the upper east side office of board certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist, Dr. Craig Austin. After successfully treating countless patients with glycolic acid - the transformative, yet gentle skin care ingredient found in many of his in office chemical peels, Dr. Austin set out to bring the professional grade results of glycolic acid peels into his patient’s homes without the professional price tag.
Glycolic acid, the star ingredient and inspiration for the brand is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) derived from cane sugar (hence the cane, in CANE + AUSTIN). Glycolic acid contains the smallest molecules of all AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) allowing it to penetrate the skin deeply and easily, breaking down dead skin cells, sebum and other pore-clogging substances. Glycolic acid is effective enough to treat most skin concerns including acne, blackheads, fine lines, oiliness and dullness and gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. With continued use, glycolic acid works to improve skin health over time.
