Does AHA helps to control sebum like BHA?

None of these help control sebum production. You may want to use niacinamide instead. AHAs and BHAs are exfoliants. AHAs act on the surface of the skin to prevent whiteheads and can also stimulate collagen production while BHAs act more deeply to clean pores and prevent blackheads. I hope this helps 😊

I think no, as its main function is more to exfoliate the skin like it helps to unclog the pores from sebum or bacteria that can cause acne.
