The soft creamy foam of the powder-form enzyme peel absorbs any excess sebum and gently loosens any dead skin cells. These are then washed away automatically after a short, gentle massage.
Ideal for sensitive, very dry or blemished skin!
Unlike with a rubbing-based exfoliation where peeling particles (e.g. apricot kernels, bamboo, lactic acid spheres) are used to mechanically rub off any dead skin cells, with an enzyme peel the dead skin cells are removed following an enzymatic reaction, without the need for rubbing.
Once or twice a week, add a teaspoon of the enzyme peeling powder to your palm and work it into a lather with a little water before distributing the lather across your face. Massage into the skin of the face for around 2 to 3 minutes using gentle circular movements. Avoid the delicate eye area. Then rinse off the enzyme peel with lots of warm water and refresh the skin with Tender Tonifying Lotion.
Enzymes suspended in water-soluble maltodextrin
Different enzyme types are needed to ensure the extra-gentle removal of loose dead skin cells. Lipases are capable of breaking down fatty acids and ‘digesting’ fats. Proteases loosen protein compounds and break the keratin present in loose skin cells down into smaller parts which can then be gently removed. Both enzymes together loosen dead cells at the surface of the skin’s horny layer and these are then washed away.
Mild cleansing agents
Cleansing agents are extracted from coconut fatty acids so as to wash away the loosened dead skin cells. The skin is left feeling fresh and cleansed.
