Chemical peels are divided into three groups.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids – Glycolic Acid , Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid, Citric Acid, Malic Acid etc
Beta Hydroxy Acids – Salicylic Acid
Poly Hydroxy Acids – Lactobionic Acid, Gluconolactone Acid
Sr-Skincare Biphasic peels combine all the benefits of alpha and hydroxy acids by blending Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Salicylic Acid (via Natural Willowbark Extract) into one peel solution. Alpha hydroxy acids provide similar benefits and work in the same ways but they do have individual and specific benefits.
Salicylic Acid as a beta hydroxy acid works in a slighly different way to an alpha hydroxy acid by being able to operate within the follicles as well as providing a surface peeling action. By combining all these acids into one we are able to provide you with a well rounded peel solution that, whilst operating primarily as a surface exfoliator, also provides a range of additional benefits.
Please note that each peel is composed of equal parts of each consitutuent acid.
