Topicals and Glycation

Answered on January 27, 2013

Does anyone know if using glycation-causing molecules topically can damage the skin? I'm using pure glycerin (a sugar alcohol) regularly, and was wondering if this might be harmful. While I get different opinions when it comes to the glycation potential of sugar alcohols, I'm still curious, regardless, as to whether topical agents can be damaging.

ps* It kinda reminds me of the article I just read about someone actually taking the time to list and discuss the fat content of celery leaves. Seriously...

I hope you will not take offense to this. But as I know from experience (trust me extreme worrier and obsessive researcher here) when you get to the point where you are worrying about this kind of stuff you need to just stop. Take a break from ph or whatever. Just stop thinking about it and just live for awhile. NO judgement here just recognition.

Interesting question, I don't have an answer but an opposite question. Do supposedly topical antiglycation products like creams with r or alpha lipoic acid in them really have any effect?
