PHA+ Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads
Helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and uneven tone.
Resurfacing action helps achieve healthy, glowing and more youthful-looking skin.
Zelens PHA+ Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads contains a unique formula combining polyhydroxy acids (PHA) with alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and beta hydroxy acids (BHA). Pre-soaked resurfacing facial pads are infused with four different acids: polyhydroxy acids , lactic acid, citric acid and salicylic acid.
Significant advantage of PHA is the fact that their large molecular size allows slower (gentle) topical penetration. Thus, this acid can be used for the exfoliation of sensitive skin without side effects. Furthermore, this acid has strong humectant properties and it binds atmospheric water to form a a natural gel-film that gives hydration, plumpness and smoothness to the skin.
Contains 50 pads
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA): Zelens uses two bio-available AHA: lactic acid (produced by fermentation of sugar) and citric acid (derived from citrus fruits). AHA promotes exfoliation of the epidermis and formation of a new stratum corneum. However, AHA can also have a deeper dermal effect as they boost production of collagen and thus increase thickness of deeper skin layers. Lactic acid is used in two forms: pure lactic acid and sodium lactate (sodium salt of lactic acid). Sodium lactate acts as an exfoliant but it is also a very effective natural moisturizer that helps adjust the pH of the skin.
Beta hydroxy acids (BHA): Unlike alpha hydroxy acids, there is only one beta hydroxy acid, salicylic acid. Salicylic acid gently exfoliates the skin and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This acid is an effective peeling agent at much lower concentrations compared to AHA (as little as 1/5 of the concentration of glycolic acid). Salicylic acid is able to penetrate the oily material blocking pores and thus effectively clean the pores and reduce their size. Salicylic acid is used in the treatment of acne due to its strong anti-inflammatory properties.
