Exposed daily to the elements and household chemicals, skin can be more susceptible to the aging process than other organs. As the body ages, skin becomes less resilient to infection and disease because it is unable to replace damaged cells as quickly and thoroughly as it once was able. Collagen-inhibiting enzymes greatly increase in number and break down the skin's inter-cellular structure. Over time, skin can lose its even pigmentation and balanced texture. Skin that heals from minor blemishes may never again look the same.

Over the last 30 years, alpha hydroxy's like glycolic acid have been used successfully to induce the regeneration of new skin which would have otherwise not been produced by the body. Derived from sugarcane, glycolic acid's small molecular size allows it to penetrate cell walls where it can interact with cellular processes, stimulate collagen production, and accelerate cell division.

On the skin's surface, a glycolic acid peel's keratolytic properties weaken the bonds that hold together dead skin cells, advancing their natural exfoliation from the surface and leaving behind new layers of clearer, smoother skin.

KAVI glycolic acid peels are derived from a very fine extraction process where trace organic and inorganic impurities have been removed. Our glycolic acid peels are prepared with witch hazel instead of SD alcohol to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin.

To help reduce the risk of burns, our retail line of glycolic acid peels are buffered to a pH of 2.1. Please visit our Physician/HCP Portal for KAVI unbuffered glycolic acid.
