Product Ingredients, Signs of Aging, Melasma, and Acne Scars: From Our Mail Bag

posted in: Ingredient Spotlight, Q&A

Q: Hi I am new to chemical peels so I’m trying to educate myself. I am 39 and during the last 6 months have seen my face age very rapidly (dryness and wrinkles) and develop dark melasma on my cheeks below my eyes, under my chin and around my mouth. I also have stubborn post acne scarring on my cheeks below my cheekbones. I want to treat my melasma areas aggressively for now what do you recommend? I would love to try samples and trials of anything as I am also looking for a new skin care line.



A: I think you’d see great improvements in the problem areas you describe with our Fruit Acid 15% Gel Peel with Kojic Acid. The 3 alpha-hydroxy acids work together to peel away dry skin, but then also allows the new skin to better retain moisture, as well as stimulate your skin to produce more collagen – which plumps fine lines from the inside-out. The Kojic acid also reduces melanin in skin cells and fades hyper-pigmented areas (spots, scars, etc).

I don’t currently have any sample sizes – although it’s on my list of things we need for this year. Honestly, I would say try it – if you give it a fair try and still don’t like it (and by fair try – I mean, use it more than twice), I’ll refund your money. I’m in my thirties as well, and get no time to myself, forget about beauty treatments (and this, literally, is my job/life), but if I can squeeze 5 minutes to apply this 2-3 times a week, my skin looks so much better for it.
Q: Hi! I just got my fruit acid 15% gel peel kojic acid peel in the mail today & I was just wondering if not only can I use for my face and neck area, can I apply the peel on the outer upper part of my arms to diminish the horrible sun damaged & uneven skin tone on my arms to make it match my natural skin color on the inside part of my arms??
A: Yes, the Fruit Acid Peel can definitely be used on the arms and body – and you can even leave it on for longer than on your face (since body skin is thicker and usually less sensitive). Hope that helps!
Q: Hello, before ordering ultimate fruit acid peel kit, I’d like to know what ingredients are in rose glow cleanser and restore hyaluronic moisturizing cream? Also does the salicylic acid 2% peel contain alcohol?
A: Yes, the Salicylic Acid 2% Daily Peel does contain alcohol. Also, the ingredients can also be found on the product pages on our website under the “additional information” tab, but I’ve also pasted them below:
