Glycolic acid 15% / Phytic acid 2% / B5
Glycolic acid 15% is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid (or AHA) that’s derived from sugar cane. It’s unique. Of the AHAs, glycolic is the simplest in structure and the smallest; it has the lowest molecular weight. That small molecular weight means it’s easy for it to penetrate your skin and be super effective.
First and foremost, glycolic acid is an exfoliant. It helps shed dead skin cells and reveal the newer, brighter layers underneath by acting on the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin). Normal, intact stratum corneum consists of tightly packed layers of dead skin cells that are tightly bonded together, Glycolic acid loosens these bonds. With their glue dissolved by glycolic acid, those tough, rough layers of dead skin cells can more easily slough away. Because glycolic acid is so small, it can get deeper into your skin too, where it does some serious work. Glycolic acid stimulates fibroblasts in the dermis to produce increased amounts of collagen, by stimulating collagen production, it helps skin feel firmer and minimises fine lines and wrinkles. Between the superficial action on your stratum corneum and the work it does below, your skin will feel smoother and look more radiant and even-toned.
Glycolic acid is a great choice for acne-prone skin. It works by un-gluing dead skin cells from each other, which clears out your pores, it’s great for not only treating, but also preventing most types of acne like blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples, since the root cause is a build-up of oil. However, approach with caution if you have dry skin, sensitivity, or cystic acne. If you have a mild to moderate cases of acne, you can use it and simply avoid it over areas that are already sensitive. If you have moderate to advanced acne or are looking to lighten hyperpigmentation and scarring, Glyco Peel Mask will help achieve skin goals.
Phytic Acid 2% Used in many medical office peelings to treat pigmentation disorders. Phytic acid or IP6 (chemical formula C6H18O24P6) is found mostly in any cereal grains (oats, wheat, rye) and vegetable seeds. It is very widely used in anti-blemish peeling and has tyrosinase inhibiting activity (the enzyme involved in melanogenesis), it is also an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. It is particularly useful in treating. hyperpigmentation
Provitamin B5 or Panthenol Renowned as a skin repairer and regulator of water balance, it regenerates the skin hydration barrier. It triggers the synthesis of a precursor of fatty acids and sphingolipids which are essential for the formation of the lipid bilayer in the stratum corneum. Through this it contributes to repairing the skin barrier, improving hydration, reducing roughness and indirectly reducing inflammation. Its potent hygroscopic properties make it the reference hydrating agent.
Polysaccharide obtained by bacterial fermentation with a branched sugar sequence rich in rhamnose (I, III, VI), galactose (II, V) and glucuronic acid (IV).A glyco-messenger, this skin inflammation attenuator binds specifically to keratinocyte receptors to inhibit cellular adhesion and as a result inhibit the propagation of the inflammatory reaction following aggression of the skin
Allantoin Promotes and accelerates cell proliferation improves the epithelialisation (regeneration of the skin) and the condition of the skin that has suffered from the surface damage. Stimulates the epidermis, particularly the granular epithelial area in which new cells are generated to replace those that are damaged or aged. Reduces the healing time and thus promotes the regeneration of the skin. Calming and moisturizing effect: It reduces the sensation of pain because it acts as a mild anesthetic.
Using your fingers or a clean brush, apply to face, neck and décolletage. Leave for at least 20 minutes and rinse, with warm water. Can be used once a week or alternate weeks to Exfoliating Cream.
