Hello,

It depends upon what you are talking about: purity or concentration. Cosmetic grade solutions are over 99% pure. Different solutions are restricted to physicians by concentration and these vary per state. Different acids have differing strengths and are restricted at differing concentrations.

Interesting question to think about. I think each state has their own rules and regulations on the level of skin therapy allowed. Check with your states medical board. My guess in Florida 20% is the limit for non doctors.
