Although its physical form as a peel would make it appear to be a superficial treatment, Yellow Peel actually works at a deep cellular level, influencing the action of receptors and sensors.
Each of its key ingredients performs a specific set of actions that add up to the overall impact of the Yellow Peel. In totality, it reverses discolouration, blocks melanin production and supports renewal.
Retinoic acid stimulates the proliferation of new skin cells and controls the secretion of sebum. Kojik, phytic and azelaic acids bring to the blend their individual antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Each has its unique way of intervening in enzymatic processes, to effectively block the synthesis of melanin and its transfer to the surface of the skin. Stabilised Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) stimulates the synthesis of neo-collagen while also contributing its anti-oxidising properties. Bisabolol adds anti-inflammatory and antiseptic action.
While the cellular processes seem quite complex, the treatment is surprisingly simple. Yellow Peel treatment starts with another peel – a superficial one – aimed at preparing the outermost layer of dead skin, the stratum corneum on the epidermis.
The Yellow Peel is then applied and left to act on the skin for a period of about 12 hours. This procedure is repeated at a fixed frequency, typically every 2 weeks, up to 8 times in all.
