Traditional peels all fall into the same trap, following the philosophy that “stronger is better.” Formulas are often composed of high percentages of single acids that result in a sunburn-like appearance, leaving clients with itchy, shedding and unsightly skin for days. However, the Bioelements vision has always been to “coax the skin into shape, never assault it.” These values hold true with the creation of their new Glycolic Detox Charcoal Peel Levels 2 and 3.
Joining the brand’s popular Lactic-Plus Peel Level 1, these new, acid-hybrid formulas successfully remove the uppermost layers of the skin at a microscopic level for immediately improved and glowing skin, without flaking. The brand has also launched an acetone-free, alcohol-free Peel Prep Lipid Eraser to accelerate treatment results and allow for maximum penetration. All with zero pain, zero flaking, zero downtime.
“The skin your clients want is under the skin they see. Bioelements new non-ablative, advanced chemical peels target an entire spectrum of concerns, from lines and clogged pores to UV damage and poor elasticity—without redness, flaking, or actual peeling. It’s the ultimate solution for clients who want total skin renewal.” —Teresa Stenzel, director of education, Bioelements

In 1991, Barbara Salomone, the architect of the modern facial and one of the first-ever licensed estheticians in the United States, created the Bioelements skin care line. Her goal was to design a line of products that would transform the way professionals treat the skin, including anti-aging cremes, face masks, sunscreens, acne treatments, cleansers, wrinkle cremes, skin lighteners and more. In order to do so, Salomone assembled a team of cosmetic chemists and expert estheticians to ensure every product contains the most effective, results-oriented ingredients to treat the skin, target complexion concerns and reduce the signs of aging. Unlike ordinary skin care, each Bioelements product is a professionally-created treatment designed to make a major difference in the appearance of the skin.
