water infusion peel
A professional chemical peel with lactic acid, gluconolactone, hyaluronic acid, sodium lactate, and a buffered pH.
Highly keratolitic and restructuring peel for dry and mature skin. A synergy of lactic acid, gluconolactone and hyaluronic acid. Two types of acids with very different properties and molecular weights. The lactic acid with a low molecular weight will penetrate deeper into the skin and produce an intense keratolysis. The gluconolactone with a high molecular weight will act on the superficial skin layers. This multi-level action will target specifically the improvement of the skin moisture, wrinkles and roughness.
Lactic is naturally found in the skin as part of a metabolic process and helps maintain the pH of the acid mantle between 4.5 and 5.5. It exerts a natural moisturising effect on the skin by attracting water molecules to the stratum cornea and stimulates the synthesis of ceramides, improving and modulating the barrier function. Gluconolactone containing five hydroxyl groups, has also intense hydrating properties.
