5% lactic + collagen is a leave-on, self-neutralizing, mild peel. It is used once per week, after cleansing. Other products may be applied 20 minutes after use.
Key ingredients include
- Soluble Collagen: Supports the resistance and elasticity of the skin
- Lactic Acid: An alpha hydroxy acid that stimulates collagen production, is an exfoliant and anti-microbial
Lactic Acid is derived from sour milk and is much milder on the skin versus glycolic and salicylic peels. Sensitive-skinned individuals tolerate this peel well.
5% lactic + collagen Lactic helps eliminate germs, toxins, and dead cells. The peeling process is very similar to how glycolic acid works.
Stop using Retin A products for at least two weeks before applying the 5% lactic + collagen peel. Retin A makes the skin very sensitive to the sun and other products.
It is important to note that it would not be suggested to combine any strong peel or exfoliating procedure with each other. You may combine PEPTI 5% lactic + collagen with an enzymatic pumpkin peel in a professional setting as the percentage of lactic acid is low.
