Tools of the Trade: Chemical Exfoliants

Trendsetters give insight on the chemical exfoliants
they recommend for professional skin care.

Epionce CEO

Dr. Carl R. Thornfeldt, F.A.A.D.

“When it comes to a pick-me-up for the skin, it is hard to beat a chemical peel treatment, which is why I like Epionce Lite Peel: Refresh. The blend of malic and salicylic acids is a fast and effective way to clear pores of congestion and dullness for smooth, radiant skin. Because it is an aesthetician-strength lunch-time peel, it requires no downtime, so patients will see results and can go right back to their normal routine.”




GlyMed Plus National Education Administrator

Sarah Robbin, L.M.E.

“This incredible exfoliator is one that I couldn’t live without! The Intense Antioxidant Professional Exfoliator contains an exclusive blend of lactic acid, pumpkin and pomegranate enzymes, in addition to powerful antioxidants that help to nourish, smooth, and brighten dull, tired skin for a stunning, healthy glow! It is a must have.”

“I love the RapidRenew™ Skin Perfecting
 – I use it to safely exfoliate my face, neck, and décolleté a few times a week before I go to sleep. The formula contains vitamins A, C, and E, and is also high in alpha hydroxy acids providing chemical exfoliation, as well as mechanical exfoliation. It even doubles as a body scrub – I like to use it in the shower to give my skin an all-over exfoliation treatment without any irritation!”




Skin Script Skin Care Owner and Founder

Lisa VanBockern

“I love the Cherry Enzyme! It is the perfect anti-aging facial for brightening normal or combination skin. The Cherry Enzyme contains five percent lactic acid, five percent mandelic acid, one percent arbutin, and one percent kojic acid. The cherry puree provides antioxidants, while lactic promotes hydration and lightening.”
