Dermalogica Launches First Chemical Peel: New BioActive™ Peel, For Professionals Only
CARSON, Calif., Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Professional skin therapists now have a new level of service to offer clients in the form of BioActive™ Peel, Dermalogica's first-ever chemical peel, exclusively formulated for use in skin care centers, spas and salons.
This revolutionary new exfoliant system addresses a diverse array of conditions. In addition to reducing skin roughness and the appearance of fine lines, BioActive™ Peel fades hyperpigmentation, treats pseudofolliculitis (razor bumps), and helps to clear acneic inflammation. The four-step program offers the many benefits of traditional chemical peels, but with little to no post-peel redness or downtime – a huge advantage for consumers.
"Today's woman is time-deprived, but still cares greatly about her skin health," comments Tracey Sameyah, General Manager for the U.S. "For nearly 30 years, Dermalogica continues to set the industry standard in terms of responding to the desires of consumers. With this new professional system, BioActive™ Peel will offer professional skin therapists a treatment that will deliver optimum results for their clients with none of the usual disadvantages or downtime associated with other chemical peels available today."
The application process consists of layers of biphasic, enzyme and acid peel solutions which are neutralized in the fourth and final step by using a foaming de-activator. Because of the intensity of the powerful active ingredients, special training and certification are required to use BioActive™ Peel.
Active ingredients including 20% Salicylic Acid, Pumpkin, Papaya and other enzymes, 30% Lactic Acid and 15% Trichloracetic Acid (TCA) stimulate natural collagen production in the skin, for a more robust structure and appearance, deep hydration, and more consistent, integrated skin texture. A final step utilizes Sodium Bicarbonate, Yeast Extract, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Cucumber and other cooling, calming botanicals to neutralize the action of the biphasic peel solution.
BioActive™ Peel will be introduced at three initial locations in September, 2013: the Dermalogica flagship on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, CA; Dermalogica in Soho; and Dermalogica in Scottsdale, AZ. Consumers may expect to find professional skin therapists providing this new treatment in their local spas, skin centers and salons starting in November 2013.
