BCN PEEL #01 - Acne Prone focuses its action on acneic skins to improve acne which is active or in resolution phase and to reduce the superficial scarring caused by the acne.

BCN PEEL #01, thanks to the combined action of an AHA, the mandelic acid and a BHA, the salicylic acid, performs two different and complementary actions: on the one hand it exfoliates the upper layers of the skin to detach old and damaged cells and with them, to remove the existing acne, as well as comedones, black heads and clogged pores; on the other hand, it has a preventative and curative action thanks to its astringent, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory qualities which prevent possible recurrences.

BCN PEEL #01 is indicated for the treatment of acne on the face, as well on other areas of the body such as the back, chest, arms and buttocks.

• Acne which is active or in resolution

• Comedones, blackheads, clogged pores, etc.

• Folliculitis

• Oily skin

• Enlarged pores

• Superficial acne scarring

• Prevention of new acneic outbreaks

• Improvement in the acne lesions is almost immediate and the inflammatory signs quickly reduce, with the skin appearing softer and less seborrhoeic.

• Eliminates or exfoliates the dead cells of the skin.

• By penetrating the pores, it improves their appearance, removing the fatty material which clogs them and restoring their natural appearance.

• Improves the appearance of blemishes and scars.

• Evens out skin tone making it more uniform.

• The ability of salicylic acid to absorb oil makes it ideal for the problems of oily skin.

• Can be used by people with dark phototypes.

• Effective on all areas of the body susceptible to the appearance of acne, such as the back, chest, shoulders, buttocks and thighs.

The principal components of BCN PEEL #01 are two types of acid chemical exfoliants:

• Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or “fruit acids”, chemical agents from a natural source existing in fruit. BCN PEEL #01 contains mandelic acid which is extracted from bitter almonds.

Its molecular structure, larger than that of other AHAs, means that it penetrates the stratum corneum more slowly and requires longer exposure time to achieve its effect, which explains why it does not create irritation or itching on the skin.

Its main actions are:

• An increase in the synthesis of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans in the papillary dermis.

• Anti-microbial action.

• The beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), such as the salicylic acid contained in BCN PEEL #01, which is extracted from willow leaves, are liposoluble substances which easily penetrate the centre of the sebaceous unit to exfoliate oily areas of the skin. This is why they are called comedolytic agents, improving the general appearance of skin with acne or with a tendency towards oiliness. Salycilic acid also has a keratolytic action, accelerating the elimination of corneocytes. Thus, being able to smooth the stratum corneum, this makes the subsequent removal of comedones easier, so avoiding the spread of bacteria when manipulating them.

Once it has penetrated the skin it is able to reach the papillary dermis where it generates various changes such as vasodilation, stimulation of fibroblast proliferation, increase in the production of glycosaminoglycans, stimulation of collagen synthesis and repair of the elastin fibres.

The salicylic acid also has an astringent, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial action, as it neutralises the micro-organism responsible for infection in acne, propionibacterium acnes, so preventing recurrence.
