The next generation in facial peeling formulated with PHA (polyhydroxy acids) plus alpha and beta hydroxy acids. This resurfacing treatment gently exfoliates the skin while providing antioxidant protection. Multi-functional peel helps refine skin texture, evens out skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores. Skin looks more radiant, smoother, firmer and younger-looking.
• Gently exfoliates the skin without causing irritation or skin dryness
• Helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone
• Reveals healthy, glowing and younger-looking complexion
Use daily, morning and/or evening. After cleansing, wipe the entire face with one pad avoiding direct contact with eyes. Leave on or if you prefer rinse with water after approximately 5 minutes. Follow with moisturiser.
Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA)
The next generation of hydroxy acids. These naturally occurring, low-irritating acids enhance exfoliation of stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin). A significant advantage of PHA is the fact that their large molecular size allows slower topical penetration. Thus, these acids can be used for the exfoliation of sensitive skin without side effects. Zelens uses lactobionic acid which has strong hydrating properties: by binding atmospheric water lactobionic acid is forming a natural gel-film that gives hydration, plumpness and smoothness to the skin. Lactobionic acid demonstrates excellent antioxidant properties and helps prevent skin damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress. It also has chelating capacity to effectively remove excess dangerous metal molecules.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA)
AHA accelerate skin renewal by gentle exfoliation of stratum corneum. Zelens uses lactic acid (produced by fermentation of sugar and citric acid (derived from citrus fruits).
Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA)
Salicylic acid: Gently exfoliates the skin and promotes skin renewal. Effectively clear the pores of debris preventing them from clogging up. Due to its strong anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties salicylic acid is used in the treatment of oily, acneic and/or blemished skin.
