Reveal your beauty! Refining Micro-Peel Pads clear away the years with rejuvenating Mandelic and Lactic Acids – without the irritation usually associated with glycolic and other harsh acids. These high-potency skin smoothers gently penetrate deep into the skin to reveal your true luminescence by increasing and supporting skin’s natural repair and remodeling processes. Convenient pads provide just the right dose of exfoliation to boost cell turnover and stimulate the formation of new, healthy cells for significantly less lines and discoloration and younger looking skin. Free of parabens, artificial fragrance and colorants, phthalates, and formaldehyde releasing preservatives.
This product has a pH of 2.2 for maximum efficacy. The importance of pH in a facial exfoliator is explained in “The Science Behind Exfoliators.”
“I’m not a big fan of facial exfoliators. I suffer from rosacea and most exfoliating products are abrasive and leave my face bright red and stinging. The Refining Micro-Peel Pads were gentle enough to use each evening and left my face feeling smooth. I was surprised that they actually helped clear up some discoloration, such as the dark shadows I have in the inside corners of my eyes.” — Deborah Boland
Mandelic Acid 10%: Derived from bitter almonds, Mandelic Acid is found to visibly help a wide range of skin conditions including hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and acne. Due to its larger molecular structure, this alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) penetrates into the skin at a slower rate than glycolic acid for thorough exfoliation, deep skin remodeling and collagen formation at the dermal level, all with less irritation commonly associated with other AHAs.
Lactic Acid 5%: Derived from sour milk and fermented fruits and vegetables, the benefits of this AHA are three-fold: Lactic Acid gently exfoliates the skin’s surface, penetrates deeply to promote skin remodeling and collagen formation, and further acts as a humectant to increase water content of the epidermis. Together, these actions simultaneously (1) smooth the skin’s surface by exfoliating and initiating cell turnover, (2) create healthy, younger skin through cell differentiation and collagen formation, and (3) plump up the skin’s barrier through increased collage formation for increased hydration and youthful pliability.
Organic Grape Alcohol (Vitis vinifera): Derived from organically grown fermented grapes, organic grape alcohol acts as a natural binding agent to keep ingredients blended and stable, thus eliminating the need for harsh, chemical emulsifiers. Also greatly enhances the absorption of the mandelic and lactic acids while quickly evaporating away to avoid drying the skin.
