Preparation method:
In a bowl or glass add and mix the ingredients of phase A. In case of this composition, the guar gum is added in a single motion and mixed well.
The composition is left to rest for approximately 10 minutes, during which time the gel will form.

Phase C ingredients are added to the formed gel, with thorough mixing after each. The preparation is transferred to the dedicated container.

Note: the optimal pH value of a peeling product is ~ 3.5 and since the pH may vary depending on the batch for most of the ingredients in the recipe, an addition of lactic/citric acid may be needed at the end.

This gel can bring benefits to any skin type and is especially suitable in case of acne, pigmentation spots, skin irregularities, wrinkled, tired, dull skin. 
It has the action of enzymatic peeling (bromelain from pineapple powder) and natural chemical peeling (fruit acids), for a clean, smooth, bright and rejuvenated complexion.


The gel is used as a mask and is applied in the evening, once or twice a week, possibly more often, depending on the established routine. Light tingling may occur when applied. After approximately 10 minutes, rinse the skin with lukewarm water.
More sensitive skin generally does not tolerate fruit acids and low pH products well. It is recommended to test the tolerance of the skin, 24 hours before using the preparation. For more sensitive skin, the gel can be formulated with a lower percentage of AHA, 3-4% and which can gradually increase up to 10% as the skin adjusts.
