This listing is for 200ml of pure 40% AHA Lactic Acid Skin Peel.
Please Note - 40% AHA Lactic Acid Skin Peel is for someone that has already used a peel and does not have sensitive skin. Used for minor skinflaws.
I am an industrial formulation chemist by trade and have derived a pure grade of 40% Lactic Acid which uses food grade lactic acid and pure distilled water as the only ingredients. There are no chemical preservatives or additives.
A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring carboxylic acids, lactic acid is a natural constituent of sour milk and found in tomato juice.
Lactic acid is known in the cosmetic industry for its line treatment with blemishing reduction properties. This makes it the perfect choice of peel for those with oily or combination skin who want the maximum line treatment benefits and blemish reduction properties of an Alpha HydroxyAcid peel. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of;
Acne Areas of Dryness
Rough & Dry Skin
Ageing Skin & Wrinkles
Psoriasis Actinic Keratosis
Directions for use
First Timers - It is advised for first time users to begin with a lower strength 20% Lactic Acid treatment.
Initially cleanse the skin with a suitable cleanser / toner. Take a cotton pad and dampen with thesolution. Apply the damp cotton pad to a small area of the cheek and wait 1-2 minutes, and then wash with plenty of warm water to remove the peel. Then access your skin tolerance for this % of Lactic Acid skin peel. There should be no redness, burning or formation of blisters during the treatment. If this is the case discontinue use as your skin type is too sensitive for the Lactic Acid peel treatment.
But, the skin can turn light pink during the peel process, after 48hrs the skin colour will return to normal.
GeneralProcedure β Wipe a dampened cottonpad over the face with 40% Lactic Acid Skin Peel. Leave for 2 mins then wash off with plenty of warm water. Repeat every week increasing the time period of the peel on the face by 1 min each time for a period of 6 weeks in total. After the 6 weeks it is advised to allow the skin to rejuvenate for at least 2 weeks before beginning a further treatment regime.
After each treatment use moisturizer to ensure the skin does not dry out. During sunny weather wear the appropriate sunscreen to protect the newly exposed skin cells (SPF15 is recommended). During the treatment phase the skin will peel and appear flaky after 1-2 days after treatment. This is a part of the treatment removing the dead skin cells.
