Glytone started with 2 pharmacists making topical dermatological skincare products in collaboration with a Dermatologist. The brand was built upon the innovation of Free Glycolic Acid and its benefits to the skin.
The True benefits of Glycolic Acid were proven and demand skyrocketed. Gensis Pharmaceuticals discovered that the market was composed of Neutralized Glycolic Acid products and decided to create Free Glycolic Acid products.
Popularity was evident and in 1992 it was decided the time had come to build a brand around this unique innovation. The name was decided by combining “GLYcolic Acid” and “improve TONE of the skin”.
