Use and Action
Renewal Complex 4 is our product of choice for a deep yet very gentle exfoliation for sensitive skin. It is the product to prefer during summer months since the active ingredients do not react with light and sun protection is not needed after treatment. After exfoliation with Renewal Complex 4, the practitioner proceeds directly to infusion, without the need to wash off the product. The active ingredients in this formula remain active and continue their gentle exfoliating activity in the hours following the session.
Main active ingredients
With Mandelic Acid as a main ingredient, Renewal Complex 4 is highly recommended for patients with sensitive skin who tend to suffer from irritation. In some cases, irritation can stimulate pigment-producing cells to produce more melanin, especially amongst those with a darker complexion. This is not likely to occur with mandelic acid. Because of its gentle properties, mandelic acid is the most recommended exfoliant for patients suffering from rosacea. Its antibacterial properties are also very helpful in treating acne as it regulates sebum production.
This multifunctional ingredient addresses many of the systemic causes of acne. Salicylic acid’s primary beneficial use is as an exfoliant helping to shed the unhealthy build-up of dead skin due to sun damage, aging, and the abnormal build-up of oil and dead surface cells for those with acne, congested pores, and oily skin. Salicylic acid exfoliates in a natural, gentle manner similar to how skin is able to exfoliate in a young person. It also helps unclog pores to resolve and prevent lesions.
Malic Acid is a preferred ingredient in facial skincare products because it has balanced humectant and skin penetration properties. It removes dead cells revealing a fresh, new layer. Suitable for use with sensitive skin types and darker skin tones, as it causes less irritation than glycolic acid while yielding similar results. In addition, malic acid is an antioxidant that helps protect from free radicals and premature aging. It significantly reduces symptoms of rosacea and improves melasma. It causes substantial reduction of acne breakouts and it is a potential acne scars improver.
Renewal Complex 4 formula also contains other important ingredients such as betaine, orange fruit extract, malva sylvestris leaf extract, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, sugar maple extract, oxidoreductases, soybean protein, lemon fruit extract, chamomilla recutita flower extract, andrice bran protein.
