For more than 40 years, glycolic acid has been predominately produced by either the carbonylation of formaldehyde or with glycolonitrile as a starting material. Both processes leave residual traces of formaldehyde in the finished commercial product.
Consistent with today's cleaner chemistry tenets, CrossChem's GlyAcid® is produced using a proprietary acid saponification and purification process that does not use formaldehyde while delivering a high purity glycolic acid in 70% solution and 99% crystalline.
