Phytic Acid was first used clinically in early 1995 as a skin lighting agent. It works by blocking the entrance of iron and copper in the formation of melanin. As well as acting as a melanin formation blocker, Phytic Acid was described by Pugliese (Peter Pugliese, MD. Philadelphia, USA) as an iron specific antioxidant and he demonstrated its chelated action on iron, copper and calcium. This antioxidant action is important to the skin, because oxidation stress is an important factor in the reduction of the inflammatory process, the precursor to post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation lesions.
MUAC PhytX Peel:
Phytic Acid works best when formulated with AHA's. Phytic is the primary acid in our formulation, but it also contains mandelic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, and hyaluronic.
This is a superficial skin peel, and will remove the top layers of the epidermis only.
You will feel a stinging sensation while the peeling serum is on the skin. Look under our instructions tab for specific instructions, but the basics will be to cleanse, apply the PhytX Serum until you feel your skin begin to sting... then wait, let the stinging-sensation subside, then moisturize. No, you will *not* be rinsing the peeling serum from the skin. It will self neutralize. Use it at night, go to bed, and wake up with amazing skin in the morning.
