PCA Peel (HQ Free)

14% lactic acid | 14% salicylic acid | 3% kojic acid

The PCA Peel (HQ Free) is a Jessner peel suitable for problematic skin prone to acne and breakouts. It helps to unclog pores, brighten discolouration/pigmented scarring, and reduce breakouts. 


Key Ingredients:

Lactic Acid (14%)

An alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA, found naturally in milk. It dissolves the bonds (desmosomes) between skin cells to allow exfoliation of keratinised surface cells, and facilitate the release of moisturising lipids onto the surface of the skin. Lactic acid also helps to lighten discolouration/pigmented scarring. 

Salicylic Acid (14%)

A beta hydroxy acid (or BHA) derived from the willow tree, Salicylic acid is anti-inflammatory and calming to the skin. It is also highly effective in treating breakouts and congestion/blackheads. It works by breaking down blockages within pores, and normalises the abnormal skin cell shedding that occurs within pores, reducing breakouts. 

Kojic Acid (3%)

A detoxifying agent and melanin inhibitor that is naturally found in mushrooms. Kojic acid helps to prevent pigmented scarring from forming in the skin. 

Citric Acid

An AHA, or Alpha Hydroxy Acid found in citrus fruits. This acid helps to exfoliate surface skin cells and brighten and soften the skin.
