SkinCeuticals - GEL PEEL SM dissolves sebum and cellular debris in pores; improves collagen synthesis and elastin fibers in the dermis; encourages cell renewal; and improves the appearance of skin discolorations. Mediterranean fruit vinegar enhances exfoliation while softening skin. Salicylic and mandelic acid work together to exfoliate the skin while decongesting pores and reducing irritation. Mandelic acid is one of the strongest AHAs and its large molecular structure and even penetration help prevent inflammation and irritation that can sometimes occur with AHA use. Salicylic acid is a lipid soluble BHA that penetrates pores to dissolve sebum and cellular debris. By accelerating the cell renewal process, stimulating collagen synthesis, and improving elastin fibers in the dermis, this light chemical peel revitalizes sensitive skin and helps improve the appearance of problematic skin.
