The Brightening AHA Kojic Peel

Kojic Acid is a powerful skin-brightening agent naturally derived from an array of organic materials (particularly fungus during the fermentation of sake). It is widely advocated as a healthier alternative to harsh bleaching agents, like Hydroquinone, which can ultimately wreck havoc on the skinís delicate pigmentation process.

Additionally, the AHA Kojic Acid Peel contains an extensive range of exfoliating agents such as Glycolic and Lactic Acid that can aid in the recovery of acne conditions.

The Natural Skin Lighten Serum with pure extracts of Bearberry (otherwise known as Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi Leaf Extract) and Licorice is recommended to be used as part of a daily routine post-peel to enhance the peelís overall effectiveness. The powerful combination of skin lightening ingredients provides a clear and even toned complexion without the irritation.

A Gentle Approach to Powerful Results

The AHA Kojic Peel inhibits melanin production (tyrosinase activity) while simultaneously reducing existing pigmentation disorders such as melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The far-reaching lightening effects of Kojic Acid have been compared to the powerful chemical agent hydroquinone (a controversial treatment option for pigmentation disorders). However, unlike hydroquinone, the AHA Kojic Peel's delicate approach to skin clarity poses little to no risk. Due to its mild peeling properties, the AHA Kojic Peel is highly recommended for individuals with sensitive skin.

A sophisticated formula featuring the best of natureís brightening tools without the harsh side effects. This powerful, yet mild chemical peel lightens, brightens and tightens all in one simple step. In addition to its revitalizing powers, Kojic Acid also has anti-microbial properties. Due to its powerful blend of natural skin lighteners, the AHA Kojic Peel can treat even severe hyperpigmentation with repeated use.
