Enzymes

Enzymes are chemicals that are mainly used in skin care to exfoliate the skin and reduce inflammation. When applied to the skin they work by breaking down the keratin protein of dead cells that linger on the surface of the skin to create a softer, smoother surface texture.

Fruit enzymes are some of the most popular types that are used in skin care and are a gentler alternative to more abrasive exfoliation treatments like microdermabrasion which makes them suitable for even sensitive skins. They can help to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne and lacklustre skin.
