Mediderma Salipeel DS PH 1.5 Chemical Peel (60 mL)
Chemical peel for oily, acne-prone skin and hyperkeratolytic conditions in high phototypes or sensitive skin. Uses the Macrogol (Polyethylenglycol) vehicle which makes it suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive and dark skin. pH 1.0-2.0.
Apply 1-2 coats of Salipeel using a gauze soaked in the solution. Apply quickly and evenly in 10-15 seconds. As the solution dries up, a slight white mask will begin to appear, which indicates the peel’s endpoint. You can fan it or ventilate to relieve the burning sensation and to speed up the solution’s drying process.
If you wish to wash the area, in order to remove the white mask for esthetic reasons, you can do so with gauzes soaked in water. If it is applied on an area that is barely visible (on the scalp, for instance), this step may be avoided.
SA is mainly known for its keratolytic and comedolytic properties. The use of high concentrations of SA causes a white epidermolysis on papules, pustules and comedones a few minutes after the application. The upper part of the pustule frequently breaks, allowing the acid to act from the epithelia of the follicle towards the sebaceous gland.
It has the following properties: soothing, antipruritic, antiseptic, antimicrobial (reduces the population of propionibacterium acnes), astringent, anti-aging (accelerates the elimination of corneocytes) and anti-epidermoplastic.
It is a safe peel without the risk of burns, particularly with products that include an hydroalcoholic vehicle in their formulation, as it evaporates rapidly and, after crystallization or once the product is dry, no further penetration of the active ingredients occurs. Every peel in this family contains 25-30% of salicylic acid and a pH between 0.5 – 2.5.
30% Salicylic acid.
