PHA+ Bio-Peel Resurfacing Facial Pads

Polyhydroxy acids (PHA): Polyhydroxy acids (PHA) are the next generation of hydroxy acids. They are natural, safe and non-irritating. Zelens uses lactobionic polyhydroxy acid, derived from lactose (milk sugar). Polyhydroxy acids enhance exfoliation of stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) and normalize its thickness. Significant advantage of PHA is the fact that their large molecular size allows slower topical penetration. Thus, this acid can be used for the exfoliation of sensitive skin without side effects. Lactobionic acid has strong hydrating properties. By binding atmospheric water lactobionic acid is forming a natural gel-film that gives hydration, plumpness and smoothness to the skin.
Lactobionic acid also demonstrates excellent antioxidant properties and prevents skin damage caused by free radicals and oxidative stress. It also has a capacity to remove excess dangerous metal molecules.
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.
