How It Works
Loosen the bonds between old acned skin from the young skin underneath. Peel away the old skin. New skin emerges.
Unclog pores and kills bacteria inside that causes skin issues.
Brighten your complexion by exfoliating away dead, dull surface skin.
Enhances the absorption of moisturizers so your skin looks smoother and more supple.
Promotes circulation, leading to an improvement in skin texture and elasticity.
"Lunch Time Peel", easy to use for 60 seconds per peel
Medium Concentration Glycolic Acid
Suitable for all skin types
Slight peeling and flaking after 2 days
Easy to use
If you have acne, your acne MAY get worse before it gets better.
As glycolic acid clears and cleanses pores, acne may initially appear to be slightly more active. As glycolic acid fights bacteria in your pores, bacterias as they are living organisms fight back.
But as the pores are cleared, your skin should show marked improvement in 6-10 peels. But you should see some improvement in 3-4 peels.
Skin Peel is the process of replacing old skin with new skin. During this process, glycolic acid also prevents future acne formation through killing off bacterias in your pores.
Just keep in mind, this is NOT a one-week solution but an excellent long term regiment for your long term skincare. Please be patient.

What Acid Strength Should I Use?
30% is a very light strength and applicable to almost all users. This should apply to most first time peelers.
If you are slightly more adventurous, 40% will deliver stronger punch and gives you faster result. However, we highly recommend you to start with 30% if you are not fully familiar with 30% glycolic acid
If you have damaged skin and you are familiar with Glycolic acid, then 60% is for you
When Will I See Results?
Depend on the objective and frequency of the peel, significant improvement is not expected until you complete a series of peels, generally at least 6 peels.
You can see signs of improved skin typically in 3-4 peels with 30% acid.
15% Acid would take twice as many peels as 30% acid due to its weak nature
For seasoned peelers with stronger acid such as 40% or 60%, you can see results in less peels. We do not recommend inexperienced peelers to use 40% or 60% from the get-go.
You could have improved brand new radiant skin in 12 peels.
Individual Results may vary
How Often Should I Peel?
- We recommend 1-2 Peels per week.
Not every acid formulation is the same.
Because it depends on the strength of the acid and the pH that is buffered at. Each acid has an “intrinsic acidity”, known to chemists as “pKa”. If the formulation is buffered at a pH higher than the pKa, the acid is no longer an effective acid. Buffering to a pH below the acid’s pKa makes the acid stronger. Glycolic acid has a pKa of 3.83. Many formulations buffer their pH higher than 3.83, meaning that the glycolic acid is essentially unable to act as an acid. All of our acids are buffered to a pH below 2.0, which makes our glycolic formulations the strongest on the market.
Glycolic acid is the naturally occurring, non-toxic alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) originally found in sugar cane. Glycolic acid is ideal for cosmetic use because of its small molecular size. It penetrates and exfoliates the upper layers of the epidermis in a more direct and easy way than other AHA's.
AHA's work by loosening and dissolving the glue-like substance that binds skin cells together. The higher the percentage of AHA in a solution, the deeper through the skin's levels the AHA's will penetrate and the quicker the loosening of the skin cells will occur. This loosening process helps to exfoliate the buildup of dead skin cells of the epidermis exposing fresh, brilliant skin.
Unlike mechanical exfoliation (scrubs), the skin is not damaged by abrasives or by the physical manipulation of the scrubbing process. Sensitive skin in particular cannot deal well with harsh scrubs and exfoliators. This is the reason AHA's have become so popular. They produce much better results than scrubs. By 'ungluing' the skin at a much deeper level than cosmetic scrubs, AHA's produce a deeper exfoliation process.
The AHA exfoliation process exposes fresher, newer skin cells giving the appearance of a fresher, more youthful looking skin. Removing the top layer of the epidermis greatly improves the texture and coloration of the skin and unclogs pores. Studies have documented that glycolic acid helps produce natural collagen and elastin in the skin's cells improving elasticity! This leads to the promotion of a proper moisture balance after the exfoliation process.
Hyaluronic Acid -- has been extensively used to promote cellular water retention and cellular rejuvenation of skin cells in severe burn victims. Hyaluronic acid increases the moisture retention level on the skin's surface by more than 1,000%.
Hyaluronic Acid, used in our creams, is able to absorb up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water. It acts like a molecular sponge. This fabulous 'molecular sponge' helps the skin by enhancing the process of cellular growth. Hyaluronic Acid adds suppleness -- which is essential for younger looking skin. This sponge-like quality gives the skin its youthful, firm appearance.
When skin ages, the Hyaluronic Acid content of the dermis decreases over time. This lower content results in a loss of elasticity.
Each of our three rich moisturizers contain Hyaluronic Acid. Enjoy the results!
2oz Glycolic Acid Peels contain 10-15 applications, or 2 months of weekly peels. You should not do more than 1 application per week.
The 40% Glycolic Acid Peel is a professional **Medium concentration** Glycolic acid peel and is suitable for all skin types; beginning and experienced peelers.
There may be some slight redness right after the peel, but generally there is not much if any visible peeling.
You can resume the exfoliation process after 1 week.
As with all products, it should be used only as directed and a patch test is always recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel.
BEFORE 1st USE
Before applying the Exfoliator (Glycolic acid for ex.), perform a “patch test” on a dime-sized area of the inside of your arm. As with any product, there is the chance that you may be highly sensitive to the glycolic acid. If you are highly sensitive you will experience burning and immediate redness. Immediately neutralize the area with soap and do not continue with the process.
KEY THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE APPLYING ACID EXFOLIATION
a. Keep the Exfoliator at least a quarter inch away from the eyes.
b. Do not apply to irritated, sensitive skin or open wounds.
c. If the product is applied to a small cut or abrasion and discomfort occurs, apply a small amount of Post Peel Neutralizer to the affected area to neutralize the Exfoliator.
d. Do not apply the acid to skin that has been waxed within 24 hours.
e. Do not apply the acid to skin that has been shaved within 24 hours
KEY THINGS TO REMEMBER POST-PEEL
a. Please DON'T apply any products or moisturizers (i.e. Alpha Balance Moisturizer) containing alpha hydroxy acids for 24 hours after applying the Exfoliator. Use of too many layers of glycolic acid may cause skin irritation.
b. Please use sunscreen and DON'T overly-expose your face to the sun for 24 hours after applying the glycolic exfoliator.
c. Please DON'T wax the skin for 24 hours after applying the exfoliator.
d. Please DON'T shave directly after application of the exfoliator

Facts about Mineral Oil - Mineral Oil is a clear, odorless oil that is derived from petroleum. As a known, naturally occurring antioxidant, Mineral Oil keeps air off the skin allowing it to breathe properly. Moreover, it is widely used in the cosmetics industry because it rarely causes allergic reactions and does not clog pores. Cosmetic-grade mineral oil is considered one of the safest, non-irritating, and moisturizing ingredients ever found.
I've used the product 3 times, 4th time will be today and haven't noticed any results. Very little peel has happened.
so far it seem to be doing the job but its only been 3 application
Love this product!
I purchased the recommended 30% glycolic acid and I am very pleased with the results. I’m using it to two times a week and I look forward to keep using the system. I have seen a marked improvement in my complexion
So far I've been using the 30% glycolic peel for 2 1/2 weeks (I've used it 5 times in that time period, as my skin is on the thicker side). I gave it four stars because I haven't fully seen the total benefits of using it continuously, but so far after 5 uses, I am beginning to see a positive change in my skin, i noticed yesterday that it definitely seems brighter and smoother. Can't wait to see the results after a few more uses!
