1 oz Argan Oil


pH 2.0

This is a great mid-level peel for clients who have used glycolic peels in the past.

99+% acid purity - finest pharmaceutical grade available

Our 50% pH 2.0 peel offers the same great benefits as our other acid products:


  • Helps to control acne and blackheads.
  • Deep cleans pores.
  • Provides a smoother skin surface making imperfections less noticeable.
  • Reduces fine lines, stimulates natural collagen production and creates a beautiful, youthful glow to the skin.
  • Evens-out skin tones and hyperpigmentation problems.
  • Helps to revive and reverse the ravages of sun-damaged skin.

Acne Clients:

You are beginning your treatments with pores that are congested/clogged with embedded dirt, dead skin cells and sebum.  As you begin your treatments the sebum just under the surface will likely emerge as blemishes.  This is normal.  Breakouts may seem more pronounced since the acid is cleaning the pores more quickly than with regular cleansing products.  Typically within the first 3 weeks, the skin begins to show improved clarity with very few breakouts.  Please try to be patient during this time.  Deep cleansing and exfoliation is a "process" which takes some time to work.

Included with your purchase:

  • 1 - bottle of glycolic acid, 50% pH 2.0
  • 1 - bottle of pH prep solution
  • Instructions listed above, under corresponding tab.
Extremely oily skin types, consider using our beta serum as your first-step before doing your peel to "cut through" the oil. While it is not a necessity, it will help extremely oily skin clients to realize better results with any of our acid peels.  And, you can use it between peels to help control oil.
Beta Hydroxy Serum
For scar reduction, use our Rosehips Hibiscus Scar Cream....also great for stretch marks.

General Cautions:
  • Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using a peel.
  • Stop Retin A, benzoyl peroxides, acne products and any other drying agents 24 hours before and after using an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy peel.
  • If you are allergic to aspirin products, never use a salicylic acid nor beta hydroxy peel.
  • Never apply a peel without doing a patch-test first and waiting 48 hours for results.
  • Never apply a chemical peel to inflamed skin.
  • Always read product directions in their entirety and don't take shortcuts.
  • Use our BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream for skin that has been chemically over processed.  It contains advanced healing agents that will quickly get your skin back to normal.
  • When in doubt about a caution, please write or call us for more information.

    FDA December 2, 2002 Posting - Sun Sensitivity
    Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal.  It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products.  The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel.

    Favorite Peels
    Glycolic peels are my favorite peels because they give quick results and the results are amazing. I started out with 30%, graduating to 50%. I did give myself a 70% glycolic acid twice, but trust me, it's not a peel I dig too much. It's just too harsh. Then again, I DID leave it on for 5-7 minutes. Just not for me. However, 50% is perfect. Not too strong, yet not weak at all. I LUV the glow and brightening effect glycolic peels give. How good your skin looks with or without makeup. Persistent use ( weekly ) truly give noticeable and positive results. It's also a wonderful pre peel before embarking on stronger peels such as TCA. If you've never used TCA, please try glycolic first. It prepared me for my first TCA peel. Honestly, the 50% glycolic and ESPECIALLY the 70% glycolic kinda shocked my pain threshold more than my 21% TCA peel. By the way, I'm Africa American, about the shade of Kerry Washington from Scandal :)

    Great product!!
    I recently upgraded to the 50% Glycolic acid peel and I love what it does my skin!! It's very important to follow the instructions to get the best results but it is easy and a you will love how your skin looks and feels. I have dry skin with sun damage and some wrinkles between brows- also some breakouts from time to time on chin area. This peel helps with all of these issues.

    Awesome Peel
    This peel is AWESOME. I worked my way up through mandelic and LA, and my skin absolutely loves and responds to Glycolic Acid. I notice less clogged pores, better tone, less blotchiness, etc and the downtime on this peel is close to nothing (aside from a little flaking for a day or so). Highly recommend!

    Game Changer
    This has been a game changer for my skin. After suffering from acne in my teens/twenties/thirties, this is a product that keeps everything in check. I'll continue to use this product forever...

    glycolic is the best thing to happen to my face
    I started out with MUAC 40% glycolic. I worked my way up to five minutes and then continued to use the peel once a week, for five minutes, for around eight weeks. The difference is astounding. My pores are tight and small, my skin tone is even, I've even developed a youthful glow. I started using the 50% a couple weeks ago. I still haven't worked up to the full five minutes, because I like to take it slow and safe. So far, the results have been as wonderful as the 40%, though it seems like it works a little better. Basically exactly what I expected. I'm trying to prep for a TCA peel and I can't wait to try it after these results.

    It has been a long long time since I've been truly impressed with a beauty/skincare product. I tried this for the first time 4 weeks ago just after one application, I felt my skin looked so much more radiant and younger! My skin no longer looks dull and washed out. The very fine lines and weird pigments have vanished. It just looks so incredibly healthy! Seriously am lucky to have tried this product. I almost feel guilty, like I cheated my way to younger skin! A++++++ THANK YOU MUAC!

    Weekly peel
    I use the glycolic acid 50 layered with the mandelic up to twice a week. This might be excessive however I have very tough skin with excessive oil production. I also use epiduo ( retin a+benzoyl peroxide) from my dermatologist. The glycolic/mandelic combo smooths out my skin, decreases oil production, and has assisted with dark spots on my face. I follow up immediately with MUAC aloe gel and Argan oil and have never had peeling or flaking.

    I love this peel! I was paying way too much money in salons to get what this peel does at home! I suffer from cystic acne and I haven't had one since I started getting/using the peels regularly. It appears to clean my pores before a blemish can form!

    Not for me
    Let me start by saying that I LOVE MAC and almost everything I've tried from them. The fade peel is phenomenal and a total game changer for me. This peel left me looking horrific. They warn you that if you are using this for acne, you will experience a pronounced break out. For me, that was a total understatement. My entire face is covered in pimples and I can't begin to imagine how long it will take to correct it. If you tend to break out, don't use this unless you have the patience to see it through!

    Incredible Peel - Skin Looks Flawless
    I love all of MUAC's glycolic acid peels, and have used this one a lot. I started out at a lower level and have been working my way up, now at 60% and sometimes I still use the 50% one. I bought the 70% also, but haven't used it yet. These peels have helped me maintain beautiful, clear and clean - fresh looking skin. The glycolic peels always leave my skin feeling baby-soft and looking incredibly clear, moisturized (I think they help products soak into the skin better) and youthful. I love them! I also use the Glyuronic serum and it has a similar affect as well.

    I'm not sure yet...
    I am not sure what to expect with this one. I used the 18% TCA peel from here which I love, but it was recommended to use this as a maintenance peel. Nothing happens and I left it on for 5 minutes the first time. I used it on my husband as the gunie pig and nothing happened, no flaky or peeling skin, no change in skin tone. The only thing we can both tell you is this stuff itches like CRAZY!! Within a couple minutes of having it on our faces, all I wanted to do is grab my hairbrush and start rubbing it against my face (unsanitary, I know but I don't have nails). I will continue to use this product for the recommended series of peels and then I will update my review after that. I think because I've had several professional peels done and I am used to the effects of the TCA peels, my skin has built up a tolerance I guess. For someone new to peels, this would probably work really well for them. I will end on a positive note and say the customer service is great and shipping was super fast! I will continue to order the TCA peels from this company for years to come.

    I've only used the Glycolic peel twice and already my skin looks and feels better. I had minimal flaking the day following the peel and minimal redness immediately after, neither of which were bothersome. The products arrived much sooner than the estimated date. I was also very pleased to find that there was not excessive and wasteful packaging.

But it do works, i like the consistence it´s like a serum. i will order again, i have to check out how the products that Muac recommended for my problems works and then maybe i have to go back to this.

    There is nothing like MUAC peels to assist in maintaining the perfect complexion we are all seeking. I will always purchase this type of product from MUAC only because I truly trust their skin care line.

    This was a disappointment. I only flaked on my nose, I saw no noticeable difference in my skin. It is not worth clearing my schedule for a week waiting to peel.

    I have used several peels. I always get fast service and like the peels. they are normally lighter and I feel safe using them. I am so glad they put info in because at times we do think more is better. and less is actually more. meaning not peeling too often. 50% Glycolic peel worked very good and left my face nice and glowy. I have worked myself up. my problem is sometimes I get spotty like I didn't put enough on certain area's. I like that I normally peel within the week. so its not too many days down, staying inside.
