Glycolic acid (GA) & salicylic acid (SA) are active ingred. of skin peels & are used in cosmetics to treat photo-aged skin. This is the report on a study of the effects of synthetic solar light on the skin of mice that had been treated with creams containing GA or SA. The greater strengths of light increased the incidences of skin cancers in mice not given a cream or a cream with no acid included. Creams containing GA had no effect on this effect of the simulated solar light. Creams containing SA did decrease the incidence of skin tumors in mice receiving the lower of the 2 light intensities. Therefore, GA did not affect the photocarcinogenesis of simulated solar light, & SA did have some protective effects against the photocarcinogenicity of light at lower intensities. Illus.
