chirally correct ingredients
I'm a licensed esthetician, owner of Gräfin Skin and Beauty, and a huge fan of educating my clients on what is and what isn't going to give them real results in beauty. I keep hearing about chirally correct ingredients, and as I understand this means they are using the left or the right side of a molecule in their formulations. Admittedly, I only had one upper level chemistry course in college (way back in the 90s) and I can't seem to wrap my brain around the idea of a left and right side of a molecule (doesn't that mean they are using one or several of the atoms making up the molecule, because isn't the molecule the smallest form of a compound that can retain the properties of that compound?). Can you explain how this works and can it really change the effects of topical products? If it does, is it changing the electrical charge? What is it actually doing, supposed or actual? Thank you so much, I look forward to a better understanding of this concept. Keep up the good work, the public needs you!!!
