EXPIRY DATE: 03 / 2023

BCN PEEL #02 - Anti-Ageing has been developed to restore the skin’s elasticity and luminosity, as well as to remove fine wrinkles on the face. The rejuvenating and anti-ageing effect of BCN PEEL #02 is achieved through the combined action of two AHAs, glycolic acid and mandelic acid.

The first, with a high level of penetration, prepares the way, as its keratolytic action promotes exfoliation of the top layers of the stratum corneum, stimulates cell renewal, increases hydration levels of the epidermis and strengthens the natural barrier function of the skin. The second, with the way opened by the reduction of the stratum corneum, reaches the correct place to carry out its action of increasing synthesis of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans in the papillary dermis. This is the anti-ageing peel par excellence and gives great results as a general exfoliant for all areas of the body where the passage of time is more evident: face, cleavage and neck, as well as elbows, knees and feet.

Mandelic acid 20%

Glycolic acid 30%

pH 1,5 – 2,5

• Dry skin with cutaneous photoageing.

• Dull skin lacking radiance.

• Skin prone to wrinkles.

• All types of skin, as an occasional additional treatment to the usual anti-ageing treatments.

• Areas with a special tendency to show ageing: face, cleavage and neck, as well as elbows, knees, feet and other dehydrated areas.

• Improves the appearance of superficial wrinkles caused by exposure to the sun.

• Repairs other damages caused by excessive exposure to the sun.

• Stimulates epidermal renewal and increases the thickness of the deepest layers of the skin.

• Deeply cleanses the pores and removes dead skin cells.

• Normalises keratinisation and softens rough skin.

• Stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin.

• Evens out skin tone making it more uniform.

• Hydrates.

The result is skin which is softer to the touch, with a more even tone, smooth texture, skin granulation is improved and imperfections, especially small wrinkles, disappear giving skin a younger, healthier and more natural appearance.

The principal components of BCN PEEL #02 are two alpha hydroxy acid chemical exfoliants:

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.

Glycolic acid, derived mainly from sugar cane.

   Great power of penetration through the epidermis because of its small molecular size. Its keratolytic action helps exfoliation of the upper layers of    the stratum corneum. It stimulates cell renewal, promotes the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans, increases the moisture levels in the epidermis          and strengthens the natural barrier function of the skin. It improves the penetration of other acids.

The synergy of the two components of BCN PEEL #02, due to the glycolic acid, in the first instance, is able to remove the layer of accumulated dead cells and make it possible for the mandelic acid to act on the deepest layers of the skin, where essentially, it stimulates the synthesis of glycogen and elastin.
