What is Glycolic Acid 30% + Lactic Acid 20% + Kojic Acid 12% Peel
Glycolic acid 30% is considered the smallest of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), this allows it to effectively penetrate deeper into the skin, providing excellent exfoliating, collagen stimulation, and dermal hydration abilities. Glycolic acids remove dead skin cells that cause dull skin, uneven skin tone, blackheads, and acne. Once dead cells to slough off, you’ll find smoother skin with clear pores. The process also helps stimulate collagen formation under the skin’s surface to plump up the skin from beneath. After just a few short treatments, you’ll find smoother lines and disappearing scars.
Glycolic Acid 30% has long been a first-line product of the finest spas and dermatology offices for improving the skin. For those of you who have heard the term ‘lunchtime peel’, this is the chemical used for it and now you can do these peels at home safely and with fantastic results. Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and is the smallest of the fruit acids. It is able to penetrate the skin effectively, allowing it to effectively dissolve the ‘glue’ that holds dead cells together.
Lactic acid 20% is a milk-based ingredient that is great for hydrating and exfoliating the skin in a gentle manner. The peel also includes two superb lighteners. You can use this product either as a booster for enzymes or on its own as a great lightening peel.
Kojic Acid 12% is made from several different types of fungi. It’s also a byproduct when certain foods ferment, including Japanese sake, soy sauce, and rice wine. Kojic acid inhibits and prevents the formation of tyrosine, which is an amino acid that’s needed to produce melanin. Melanin is the pigment that affects hair, skin, and eye color. Because it inhibits the production of melanin, kojic acid can have a lightening effect.
