Enzymes: Inside + Out

One of the many things I adore about nature is its ability to nurture us from the inside-out and outside-in. It is through nature that we have been given the wonderful gift of enzymes.

What is an enzyme? An enzyme is a molecule that acts as a catalyst by speeding up the rate of chemical reactions that take place within a cell.

When we apply enzymes to our skin, this all-natural miracle molecule helps break down the keratin proteins that are found within our dead skin + allows us to unmask the smoothness and glow we've been lacking. 

In our Retrograde Brightening Enzyme Peel you will find two enzymes: papain + bromelain.

Papain, which is found in papaya, aids with:

•fighting wrinkles
•brightening the skin
•hydrating and repairing skin
•healing wounds
•fighting free radicals due to its antioxidant properties

Bromelain, which is found in pineapple, aids with:

•collagen production
•repairing cells + tissue
•brightening + healing the skin


All in all, our mask helps refine pores + rejuvenate the skin, naturally. No harsh chemicals, no potent fragrances. Nothing but pure mother nature, just as intended. 

Be Well.
