The Triple Wonder of Exfoliation: Mechanical, Chemical, and Enzymatic
Our skin never stops working. Every day, our skin cells rejuvenate, allowing the old ones to give way to the new. That's why exfoliation is so crucial to maintain a radiant, healthy glow. But did you know there are three distinct types of exfoliation? Let's delve deeper into this world of skin renewal and discover how the Bio-Barrier Peeling Exfoliant seamlessly blends all three forms for the ultimate skin experience.
1. Physical Exfoliation
This is perhaps the most commonly recognised type of exfoliation, often associated with scrubs containing tiny particles designed to mechanically slough away dead skin cells. In our Bio-Barrier Peeling Exfoliant, this is achieved using Polylactic Acid, derived from corn starch. This ingredient gently sweeps away dry and dead skin cells, paving the way for a refreshed, rejuvenated complexion.
2. Chemical Exfoliation
Chemical exfoliation harnesses the power of acids or enzymes to dissolve the bonds holding dead skin cells together, thereby stimulating cellular renewal. In our splendid peel, we've incorporated both Phytic Acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, and Ferulic Acid. Together, these powerhouses work to brighten the skin and refine its texture and tone. Moreover, Ferulic Acid neutralises free radicals, offering your skin a shield against environmental stressors.
3. Enzymatic Exfoliation
This gentler form of exfoliation relies on natural enzymes to digest and break down dead skin cells. The Lactobacillus ferment, extracted from pomegranate, serves this very purpose. This probiotic ingredient not only aids in balancing the skin's microbiome but also acts as a gentle exfoliant.
Remember: regular exfoliation can leave your skin more susceptible to the sun. Always pair your exfoliation routine with an SPF.
Your Skin, our Commitment!
The beauty of triple exfoliation is its holistic approach to skin renewal. Where mechanical exfoliation targets the skin's surface, chemical and enzymatic exfoliations delve deeper, addressing cellular debris and promoting faster cell turnover. This three-pronged tactic ensures that every layer of the skin, from the visible surface to the deeper layers, benefits from the renewal process.
Furthermore, while the triple exfoliation is hard at work, the infusion of prebiotics and probiotics focuses on maintaining a balanced skin microbiome. A balanced microbiome is essential for preventing breakouts, reducing redness, and ensuring that the skin remains resilient against external stressors.
Ceramides in the formula play a vital role in retaining moisture, ensuring that while the dead skin cells are being shed, the new ones are adequately hydrated. They create a protective barrier, locking in moisture and preventing dryness and irritation.
Botanical extracts introduce a realm of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to the mix. These not only fight against free radicals but also provide the skin with essential nutrients, promoting a radiant and youthful complexion.
In essence, the Bio-Barrier Peeling Exfoliant is not just another exfoliant; it's a comprehensive skin treatment, meticulously designed to cater to all aspects of skin health. It's a testament to the wonders that can be achieved when cutting-edge science meets the treasures of nature!
