I am an industrial formulation chemist by trade andhave derived a pure grade of Glycolic Acid which uses pharmaceutical grade glycolic 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 toimprove and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off.
Glycolic acid is one of the naturally occurring fruitacids derived from sugar cane. These fruit acids are generally called AHA (AlphaHydroxy Acids). It is the smallest member of the AHA family. Glycolic acid is known in the cosmetic industry for its line treatment with blemishing reduction properties. The peel removes the upper epidermis layer of skin, to reveal healthier looking skin. Glycolic acid skin peel can be used for the treatment of;
Acne Areas of Dryness
Rough & Dry Skin
Ageing Skin & Wrinkles
Directions for use
First Timers - It is advised for first time users to begin with alower strength (10%-20%) Glycolic Acid treatment. Initially cleanse the skin with a suitable cleanser / toner. Take a cotton pad and dampen with the solution. Apply the damp cotton pad to a small area of the cheek and wait 1-2minutes, and then wash with plenty of warm water to remove the peel. Then access your skin tolerance for this % of Glycolic Acid skin peel. There should be no redness, burning or formation ofblisters during the treatment. If this is the case discontinue use as your skin type is too sensitive for the Glycolic Acid peel treatment. But, the skin can turn light pink during the peel process, after 48hrs the skin colour will return to normal.
Please Note - 60% & 70% Glycolic Acid Skin Peel should be diluted before use with water.
GeneralProcedure β Wipe a dampened cotton pad over the face with 10-50% Glycolic Acid Skin Peel. Leave for 2 mins then wash off with plenty of warm water. Repeat every week increasing the time periodof the peel on the face by 1 min each time for a period of 6 weeks intotal. After the 6 weeks it is advisedto allow the skin to rejuvenate for at least 2 weeks before beginning a furthertreatment regime. After each treatmentuse 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 andappear flaky after 1-2 days after treatment.This is a part of the treatment removing the dead skin cells. Further information can be found here;
