Why use a pharmacy form of thiogamma?
Indeed, if there is cosmetics with this substance, then why
use a variant from the pharmacy? There are several reasons.
First, it seems to many women that once a product is sold
in the pharmacy, it means that it is more useful and has the best effect. But deal

Why overpay? However, not everything is simple and above all
because this form of acid is intended for intravenous
use, but not for external topical use.
The fact is that the molecules of this chemical compound are very
capricious. They do not like light, water, air, glucose, metals, or
just do not like, and quickly destroyed under their influence. So,
the pharmaceutical form of the substance when applied to the skin will contact with
