Glycolic peel

Guest Elga

Recommended Posts

Hello: I am a licensed esthetician who has used the murad glycolic 40 percent peel on my face for years and am ready to try your products. Please let me know if you think I am ready for either your 50 or 60 percent peels since I have still some acne scars that have not gone away. Please let me also know if either of those strengths will actually cause my skin to peel off like if I were to do a chemical peel. Thanx!!! Elga

While we are not familiar with Murad's peels, we can tell you our home peels are buffered to a pH of 2.1, 0.1 above the FDA guidelines for OTC cosmetic peels. At a pH of 2.1, KAVI Glycolic Acid can safely be rinsed off with water and will not peel skin in sheaths but in flakes over a 24-72 hour period following treatment. For facial application, we would not recommend a concentration stronger than 50%.


For licensed care practitioners, we offer non-buffered KAVI Glycolic Acid at its naturally-occurring pH of 0.6. KAVI Non-Buffered Glycolic Acid comes in a concentration of 70% and requires a neutralizing agent (e.g., NaCO3).
