gluco peel

70 ml

 

Mid-superficial anti-ageing peel for oily and combination skin types. A professional gel peel with high content of gluconolactone, sodium lactate, hyaluronic acid. The effect is very similar to that of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids or fruit acids like glycolic or lactic acid), but as a type of polyhydroxyacid gluconolactone is more beneficial. Containing five hydroxyl groups, it has more hydrating properties compared to alpha hydroxy acid with only one hydroxyl group. Since it is a larger molecule, gluconolactone penetrates the skin slowly without burning sensation compare to AHA.
Gluconolactone has also interesting purifying properties to reduce imperfections, acne, rosacea or seborrhoea.
