Enzyme Skin Care
Enzymes exfoliate the skin without the use of acids, thus making enzyme products an excellent choice for sensitive skin. Most enzyme products contain papaya (papain) as a primary exfoliating agent. Bromelain (pineapple) and pumpkin enzymes are also exfoliating. Make certain your enzyme product is *not* formulated with an acid (our pumpkin mask contains 5% glycolic acid) if your skin is sensitive.
Enzymes dissolve surface debris from the skin, keeping it soft and smooth. Enzymes are excellent in removing flaky, dry skin including dry skin after a chemical peel. Chemical peels are "controlled burns" and will, to varying degress depending on the strength of the peel, burn-off skin cells.
If you have sensitive skin, an enzyme regime is recommended in lieu of chemical use.
