You probably know Mederma as the go-to product for diminishing the look of scars.

The line consists of a cleanser, toner, face cream, body cleanser and hand and body lotion, all of which contain glycolic acid as the star ingredient to help exfoliate dead skin cells. As if that wasn’t enough, each piece in the line is hypoallergenic, scent-, soap- and paraben-free, and pH balanced to keep skin irritations to a minimum.
