An enzyme peel is a blend of natural fruit ingredients (enzymes) and is one of the gentlest methods of exfoliation.
Enzyme face peels remove top layers of skin and stimulates skin cells renewal, leading to a fresher, more glowing skin with an evened surface. Enzyme peelings are used all over the world to treat skin surface problems such as wrinkles and lines, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, and sun damage.
Enzyme peels are made with various ferments, mostly fruit-extracted ones. One of the most popular peels – is a papaya based one. Some other fruits and plants, such as pineapples, green apples, aloe and pumpkin are also used.
While acids such as TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and others are often used for chemical peelings, enzyme based ones are less aggressive and can be used on acne prone and sensitive skins without any issues.
