The principal components of BCN PEEL #03 are three alpha hydroxy acid chemical exfoliants:

• Lactic acid which is extracted from milk.

  It breaks the protein bonds between the corneocytes, causing their release and the reduction in the thickness of the hyperkeratotic stratum         corneum. It stimulates the production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, constituents of the dermal matrix. It has a natural hydrating effect         on the skin by attracting water molecules towards the horny layer and stimulating the synthesis of ceramides, improving and modulating the         barrier function. It promotes an even dispersion of melanin, inhibits the action of tyrosinase and blocks melanogenesis. It has an antioxidant           effect.

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.

When the chemical agent comes into contact with an excess of melanin, it causes a controlled chemical burn which results in peeling of the keratinocytes loaded with melanin and initiates the process which improves the appearance of hyperpigmented skin.
