Lactic acid
Organic acid belonging to the category of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), substances that has a keratolytic action able to break the bonds that form between the keratinocytes.
Lactic acid has moisturizing and exfoliating properties higher than other AHA, resulting in an exceptional and lasting hydration. Being a natural component of our body, it is well tolerated, severely limiting all irritative actions that may occur in the treatments.

Salicylic acid
Active ingredient with an high keratolytic activity, as it is able to selectively break the keratin protein chain, abundantly present in the corneocytes. On the skin, salicylic acid decreases the cohesion of the corneocytes forces. In this way is promoted desquamation of hyperpigmented keratinocytes, while stimulating cell renewal. The final effect promoted from salicylic acid is surprising: the “new” keratinocytes, being less rich in melanin pigment, give the skin a smoother look, polished and bright. In addition it is also used for its bacteriostatic properties and soothing. In fact, it is rapidly absorbed in the inflamed lesions by exercising these functions, without causing evident irritation phenomena.
