Dr. Sivak's Notes:

Pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) proteases hydrolyze proteins, exfoliating dead skin cells and impurities while delivering vitamins and nutrients to the skin.

This enzymatic peel product is a natural, gentle enzyme "peel” that leaves the skin cleansed and silky smooth.

• Try this in our Exfoliation Set for 25% below the cost of items purchased separately.

 

First, test the peel on the inside of your arm. If the pure peel is too strong for your skin, dilute with our Sea Kelp Coral until you find a strength that is suitable for you.

 

Avoiding the eyes and lips, apply a thin layer of Pumpkin Enzyme Peel to clean, non-irritated skin once or twice weekly and let sit for 3-10 minutes (depending on skin sensitivity). Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

 

Follow with your favorite nutritive cream, Sea Kelp Coral or Rosehip Seed Oil.

Pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) Enzyme.

Exfoliation will help keep your pores open and reduce blackheads. It will also help reveal younger looking skin that is waiting under the dead upper layers.

 

There are three ways of exfoliating your skin: physical exfoliation (crystals or organic material used in micro exfoliation), chemical peels, and enzymatic peels.

 

Chemical peels are acid solutions that will break down the proteins in the most external layers of the skin if used with caution, the skin can be burned if you are not careful.

 

Proteases are proteins with enzymatic “peeling” activity. They will break down very specific bonds linking amino acids in proteins, breaking down those proteins. They will not penetrate very far at all, so they are very safe. This is the type of exfoliation our Pumpkin Enzyme Peel provides.

    Best product ever. A clear liquid and one drop goes a long way. I have a very high tolerance for glycolic acid so this may not help other people. Definitely not for everyone to use other than a peel. But for me it keeps acne at bay if I use it daily after moisturizer and don't wash off. I even bike to work and the sweat usually causes trouble even though I wash face immediately afterwards. But not any more. After washing I apply moisturizer then a Pumpkin Enzyme drop smoothed on each side of face. I used benzoyl peroxide (I know, gasp, horrible) but before the Pumpkin Enzyme it was the only thing that prevented deep breakouts, even with your wonderful White Willow Bark Salicylic Acid keeping 90% of acne away. Glad I haven't had to use benzoyl peroxide for a month now. It would leave brown burns. Good riddance to that stuff. I love THIS so much better.

    This has been my bestfriend for the past 2 months since I had a massive hormonal pimple breakout....It has help lighten all the black spot in my face...now if I can only find some from skin actives that would totally get rid of the marks....i would be completely satisfied.

    Very effective yet gentle peel. One of the best I've tried!

    Used this with the exfoliation powder. Love it! Very gentle, and easier to use than a mask. My combination skin and mild rosacea had no problem with this. My face was clean, soft and ready for serums!

    I used to think exfoliation had to be physical. I fell in love with an exfoliator that used both acid and jojoba beads, but it was $75/jar and I just couldn't justify the expense. Never mind, Pumpkin Enzyme Peel exists and is even more perfect (and inexpensive)! I have sensitive, fair, dry skin and this works beautifully for me. I spread a few pumps over my face and relax in the tub (it doesn't really feel like anything is happening, but don't worry!). Halfway through I rinse it then spread some Sea Kelp Ultramarine and Rosehip Seed Oil... gorgeous! My skin is like satin afterwards. Definitely definitely definitely try this.

    This enzyme peel is just fabulous. So refreshing, gentle, and easy to use. I just leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing and it feels really great.
