Pyruvic 40% + Lactic 10%

Pyruvic acid is an α-keto acid present in honey, vinegar, apples and fermented fruits that presents both epidermal and dermal effects.

  • At epidermal level it has keratolytic, antimicrobial and sebostatic properties, being very effective in acne treatment. It diminishes the cohesion of epidermal keratinocytes, facilitating desquamation and preventing from the thickening of the upper layers of the epidermis.
  • At dermal level, it has the ability to stimulate new collagen production and the formation of elastic fibers and glycoproteins, reducing wrinkles, photoaging and hyperpigmentations. A true dermal remodelling is produced, improving skin texture and reducing flaccidity.

Because of its low pka and its small molecular size, it penetrates rapidly and deeply through the skin, producing more powerful effects. 

Pyruvic acid treats effectively skin photodamage, warts, superficial scarring, hyperpigmentations, actinic keratosis, inflammatory acne and acne scars, leading to a smoother, refined and even skin.

It is included in the group of medium-depth peels and its application usually induces intense burning, being the postpeel period characterized by erithema, desquamation and sometimes crusting.

Lactic acid strengthens skin barrier function preventing from water loss and promoting high skin hydration. It allows an exfoliation without high levels of dryness, thanks to the protective film that forms. Lactic acid increases the production of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglicans, especially Hyaluronic acid, improving skin texture, smoothness, appearance of fine lines, sun damage and premature skin aging.
It also contributes to accelerating skin renewal, shedding damaged cells from the corneous layer.
