Intense Mini-Peel - 30% Glycolic Acid
Our Intense Mini-Peel 30% Glycolic acid will smooth and even out your skin tone within the first few applications. This 30% Glycolic with a pH of 2.3 provides the safest method of at-home high exfoliation while avoiding the problems of redness and peeling associated with higher levels of glycolic acid. There will be a reduction in pore size and an evening out of the skin tone with continual use. Glycolic acid also reduces the amount of surface skin oil, which aids in the removal of blackheads and other impurities and may help stimulate collagen production within the dermis, the layer of the skin located below the epidermis. * not for mid-dark skin tones (could lead to hyperpigmentation. Instead use the Lactic acid).
Distilled Water, Glycolic acid, Glycerin, Sodium Citrate, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose and Sodium Hydroxide. pH 2.3
The peeling is gradual and you will not actually see the peeling process. If you enjoy sun tanning, do not use this peel, instead use the Lactic Peel. This is a stronger peel and if you do not use a sunscreen hyperpigmentation may occur.
