Prickly Pear AHA + HA Peel [Back Bar]
1-2x / week
PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY. NOT FOR RESALE.
Glowing skin is right around the corner with this luscious, mid-strength AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) 20% peel. Packed with powerful fruit enzymes, it plumps, tightens and brightens, while lightly resurfacing the top layer of your epidermis to reveal a more radiant complexion and let your favorite serums and moisturizers soak right in. HA (hyaluronic acid) plumps fine lines and wrinkles by boosting your skin's hydration from within.
This professional strength peel is twice as strong as our 10% retail formula. If your client has sensitive skin, you may want to opt for using the retail version. For especially sensitive skin, try our Coconut Lactic Peel.
- Softens fine lines and wrinkles to reduce signs of aging
- Increases collagen production to promote firmness
- Lightens and brightens skin tone
DIRECTIONS: Apply a nickel-sized dollop in a thin layer to clean skin. Wait 10 minutes, rinse.
TIPS: You may feel a slight prickling sensation, which is normal. If you are new to using AHA peels, do a small patch test first. If you feel discomfort or a burning sensation, rinse well and pat dry. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. Do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. [Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.]
For double exfoliation, follow immediately with our Triple Action Cleansing Grains or Brighten Up Cucumber Face Polish.
Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin.
Prickly pear fruit nectar, a unique super food, is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, helping reverse sun and environmental damage and lightening age spots. Our friends in Arizona lovingly grow and hand-process each fruit, juicing it fresh for us.
AHA fruit acid blend sheds off the outermost layer of skin cells (corneocytes), induces the renewal of a skin cell layer and increases the moisturizing level of skin which improves the flexibility of the upper skin layer.
Hyaluronic acid serves as a water reservoir for the cells. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. As we age, the loss of hyaluronic acid results in sagging, thin, wrinkly skin. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin helps hydrate the skin’s intercellular reservoir, raising the moisture level, plumping the skin and smoothing fine lines.
