The Skin Culture Peels are home skin peeling treatments that help rejuvenate the skin surface. They create an even and controlled shedding of several layers of skin cells. This allows new layers to be exposed and creates a fresh appearance to the skin surface. In addition, new cells and collagen are stimulated, creating a more even skin tone.
During the 6 day application process the exclusive and safe formula of the Skin Culture Peel removes the dead skin. On the first day there is a warm sensation and the skin will become slightly tanned. On the second day the skin will feel tight and on the third day the skin will take on a healthy robust look, will be darker in colour and slightly wrinkled. On the 4th, 5th and 6th day peeling starts around the eyes and mouth areas and then the chin, cheeks and forehead. Peeling may continue beyond the 6 days and the complexion will continue to look better as old skin is replaced by a new skin that is tighter, smoother and younger looking. Thick or toughened skin may flake rather than peel and a second or stronger peeling may be needed.
Since 1937. The formula was originated and developed by a New York doctor and pharmacist. Originally formulated in 1937 as a treatment for acne and spots, it has proven to significantly improve large pores, oily, dry blotchy skin, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and blackheads.
The active ingredients in the Skin Culture Peel are Resorcinol, Salicylic and less than 2% Phenol. While some chemical peels may feature just one of these ingredients alone, our unique formulation allows us to combine all three powerful exfoliators into a multi-acid peeling solution suitable for all skin types and issues. It has been used by hundreds of thousands of men and women of all ages and skin color with excellent, measurable results since 1937.
In addition, the treatmeent contains the oils of Thyme, Eucalyptus and Wintergreen, which have long been recognised in natural healing science as effective holistic healing agents for many skin problems. Those allergic to aspirin or resorcinol should not use this product and a patch test is always recommended prior to the full facial peel.
The Skin Culture Peel has been available for over 78 years and has been safely used by hundreds of thousands of men and women with excellent, measurable results. The treatment will not penetrate below the epidermis so does not cause breaking or blistering of the skin. However, as with all skin care treatments, there is the possibility of reacting to some of the ingredients in the Skin Peel. Very rarely will a client have an allergic reaction to the Skin Culture Peel. The symptoms may include itching, redness, and stinging lasting for a few days. We always advise that you do a patch test for a full 6 days, before doing a full facial treatment. This will help to confirm that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients contained within the product.
Regardless of whether you choose to use a Skin Culture Peel or any other product you should not have a chemical peel if:
- You are pregnant or breast feeding.
- You are currently using Accutane or other dermatological drugs.
- You are using Retin-A, which should be discontinued about 30 days before peeling is administered.
- You have extremely thin or translucent skin.
- You have a history of fever blisters or herpes simplex which can be stimulated by a chemical peel.
- You have a history of medical problems. (e.g. eczema, seborrhea, and extremely sensitive or hyper-allergic skin).
You should see an improvement in your skins appearance with a Peel 2000 treatment. This works to remove some of the thickened outer skin, which contains scaly cell build-up, dirt and cellular debris. When the damaged, aged skin peels away a more clearer, smoother new skin is revealed. Peel 4000 is the maximum strength and provides the deepest peeling. Most people achieve the desired results with a Peel 3000 or Peel 4000 treatment. The ideal candidate for a chemical Peel is someone who is looking for improvement rather than perfection.

Not usually. Those allergic to aspirin or resorcinol should not use this product and a patch test is always recommended prior to the full facial peel. This test should be done under the chin area for the full six days. This will help determine whether you are sensitive to any of the ingredients in the peeling treatment.
The Skin Culture Peel will not stop the ageing process. It will however create a fresher tone and healthier appearance to the skin. For severe problems, the stronger treatments are recommended. But even those can be repeated as often as necessary to improve one's appearance.
The collagen that is present in the face is lying dormant. When you have a skin peel you increase, excite and stimulate the flow of collagen that is present. This helps to bring about a more youthful looking complexion tone. Also, the increase in the flow of collagen will help to improve the appearance of fine red lines on the nose and face.
Yes. Men and women of all ages and skin color (fair to black) can enjoy a fresher, clearer, younger looking complexion with the Skin Culture Peel. The treatment will not make the user lighter or darker than they naturally are, but will help to return the skin to it's natural tone and texture. In addition to beautifying your complexion a Skin Culture Peel will also help improve most skin problems from minor brown spots to sun damaged skin and acne scarring.
There will be a hot stinging sensation lasting for 15-20 minutes after the peeling formula is applied. It is recommended to relax, watch television, listen to the radio or read while doing the treatment. Fanning the face will help to relieve any discomfort felt.
In our 78 year history it has been our experience that the application of our product has never caused the skin to break because it has never peeled beyond the epidermis (top layers) of the skin.
