Non-abrasive exfoliator meets Chemical Exfoliator
We use papain is an enzyme from the raw fruit of the papaya plant and is an excellent natural remedy for a variety of skin conditions. As an exfoliator, it causes less abrasion than manual scrubs, gently dissolving surface debris to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reveal a noticeably even skin tone.
Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid
Salicylic Acid – Is an excellent for chemical exfoliant because it penetrates the skin. Not only does it help soften the skin, but it works to slough away layers of dead skin cells on the epidermis.
Lactic Acid – Lactic acid is an effective ingredient for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. It is particularly beneficial for treating acne, dry skin, and dull skin. However, you should not use a lactic acid product if you have skin irritation, such as redness, swelling, or open sores.
Things you need to know before trying the Triple Exfoliator
Since lactic acid causes exfoliation of the top layers of skin, you may want to consider discontinuing other exfoliating products (i.e., retinoids, scrubs) when you’re using a lactic acid product to avoid irritation. So, no products with Vitamin A like Acne Spot Treatment, Vitamin A Serum or Complex, or any of the Age Perfects. Also do not use the powders with this exfoliator or afterwards. You want to make sure there is no additional exfoliation for at least a week. In addition, the exfoliating effect of lactic acid can cause your skin to become more prone to sun damage. Thus, it is recommended to use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen like (Protect) daily for the first week after your peel.
You may not peel like most chemical peels. That doesn’t mean this isn’t working. The enzymes in the Triple Exfoliator help slough off dead skin cells so clients see less flaking. Also, the lactic acid helps penetrate deeper into the skin and works on the dermis.
If client reaches a 5 or higher on a scale of 1-10, remove immediately and let then skin cool down. Remove with Hydrating Cleanser, not just water.

Please read below information before using the Triple Exfoliator
Lactic acid is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) while Salicylic acid is a type of beta-hydroxy acid (BHA). Lactic acid and salicylic acid can be used together in your skincare routine. Lactic acid and salicylic acid are considered as a chemical exfoliant that will remove dead skin cells and improve skin texture.
Don’t Mix: AHA/BHA acids with retinol. We strongly caution those also using retinoids for acne or anti-aging as the combination with various acids may cause excessive skin sensitivity, irritation, and redness. In fact, AHA and BHA should not typically be used together with retinoids on the same day and your client should not use these 2-3 days before and after using the Triple Exfoliator. Many skincare companies have these in their products. You might think they are generally mild but mixed together it can magnify the results of each product.
Don’t Mix: Retinol with vitamin C, benzoyl peroxide, and AHA/BHA acids.
AHA and BHA acids are exfoliating, which can dry out skin and cause further irritation if your skincare routine already includes retinol.
As for benzoyl peroxide and retinol, they cancel each other out. “It is not recommended to use benzoyl peroxide and retinoids together as they can literally cancel each other out rendering them less effective.
Finally, because vitamin C protects skin from environmental aggressors and retinol repairs and rebuilds skin, they’re best used at opposite times of the day.
Exfoliating Acids to watch for and to not use on your client
Exfoliating acids help skin to look its best by removing dead skin cells and revealing a fresh complexion.
Below, we have listed the types of exfoliating acids used in Dermaki Skincare and other skincare lines. If your clients’ products contain these ingredients, then have them not use their home care products for 2 to 3 days before and after this treatment.
Glycolic acid is the smallest and most highly soluble of the alpha hydroxy acids making it especially efficacious in exfoliants and chemical peels. It reduces cell adhesion in the uppermost layer of the epidermis, promoting exfoliation of dead skin and cell replacement contributing to a smoother brighter complexion. Glycolic acid is the active ingredient in Dermaki’s Pumpkin Mask.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polymer found in connective, neural, and epithelial tissue in both animals and humans. Hyaluronic acid can hold about 1,000 times its weight in water. Because of its ability to hold water, HA is an easy choice when looking for an ingredient that will hold moisture when applied to the skin.
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid manufactured by fermentation of non-GMO corn derived carbohydrates. Lactic acid is used in the formulation of cleansers, splashes, astringents, and moisturizers to enhance the appearance of dry or mature skin. Lactates are also effective humectants and buffering agents in soaps and wipes due to their excellent ability to attract and hold moisture within the skin.
This beta-hydroxy acid is a powerful and effective exfoliant widely used for face peels and in products for less than perfect skin. Salicylic acid must not be used above 2% in any cosmetic formulas and is considered gentler than alpha-hydroxy acids.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid powder is an organosulfur compound derived from octanoic acid and is naturally made in the human body. Often referred to as the “universal antioxidant”, it rivals vitamin C and E in its antioxidant effects.
Tartaric acid is a fine, white to off-white, crystalline powder derived from grapes. Tartaric acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) group and in skin care products it is often used as an active ingredient in exfoliants and chemical peels
Malic acid is a fine white to off-white, fine granule powder. Malic acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) group and in skin care products it is often used as an active ingredient in exfoliants and chemical peels.
Originally discovered in several varieties of mushrooms, kojic acid is an off-white crystalline powder. A by-product of the fermentation process of malting rice, kojic acid helps as a preservative booster and works to preserve colors in formulations. Kojic acid also helps skin tone appear more even.
Naturally occurring citric acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) group and in skin care products it is often used as an ingredient in exfoliants and chemical peels, such as Essential’s Alpha Hydroxy Liquid Bundle, but most often citric acid is used to adjust the pH in personal care products such as lotions, cremes, shampoos, etc.
Also since the Triple Exfoliator is an enzyme and acid exfoliator have them avoid using all enzymes for one week after this treatment.
