BCN PEEL #03
Bottle | Depigmentant
Bottle | Anti-aging
BCN Peel #03 CE is characterized by its anti-aging action that restores the elasticity and luminosity of the skin and eliminates fine wrinkles.
BCN Peel #03 CE Depigmentant is a chemo exfoliant that combines three alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs): lactic acid, mandelic acid and glycolic acid. It’s a depigmenting action treatment due to the inhibition of melanin and the elimination of the upper layers of the epidermis.

Lactic acid breaks the protein bonds between the corneocytes, causing their detachment and the reduction of the thickness of the hyperkeratotic stratum corneum. It stimulates the production of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, constituents of the dermal matrix. This has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin by attracting water molecules to the horny layer and stimulating the synthesis of ceramides, improving and modulating the barrier function.
Mandelic acid has a larger molecular structure than other AHAs, so it penetrates the stratum corneum more slowly and requires a longer exposure time. That’s why it doesn’t cause irritation or itching on the skin. This increases the synthesis of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans in the papillary dermis.
Glycolic acid is highly tolerated by the skin and its small molecular size gives it great transepidermal penetration capacity. Its keratolytic activity promotes exfoliation of the superficial layers of the stratum corneum by altering the cohesion of corneocytes. It stimulates cellular regeneration and promotes the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans. It favors the penetration of other acids.
