This powerful non-abrasive enzyme peel is the same one I use on clients who come to my holistic skin care studio for organic facials. It is a must-have for acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and helping to clear stubborn breakouts. The powder formulation means you’ll always have a fresh peel on hand and gives this product a long shelf life. One caveat- it smells a bit strong. Papain and while willow bark both have distinctive scents so don’t be concerned when you open the jar. It’s just the naturally occurring scent of the ingredients.
This product is appropriate for all skin types. However, check with your dermatologist first if using prescription peeling products. Do not use if allergic to papaya, papain, aspirin or salicylic acid.

Mix 1 teaspoon of peel with 1/2 teaspoon of liquid* to make a creamy paste, adjusting liquid to your preferred consistency for application. Using a fan brush or your hands, apply to clean, dry skin, avoiding eyes.
Sensitive skin- leave on for 5 minutes the first time, then gradually work up to 10 minutes with subsequent uses**
Normal skin- leave on for up to 20 minutes**
Remove with warm washcloth or rinse with warm water. Most skins will be noticeably flushed immediately after use but this effect subsides within 10 to 60 minutes in most cases. Use 1-2 times weekly, followed by Ablutions Lotus & Coconut Milk Balancing Treatment Mask, and/or your regular skin care regimen.
* Water or herbal tea; or try buttermilk for enhanced treatment of hyperpigmentation.
** If you have sensitive skin or have never used an enzyme peel, start with 5 minutes of peel time upon first use. If your skin responds well, increase the time by 1 or 2 minutes each time until you’re able to comfortably use the peel for 10-20 minutes. Do not peel for more than 20 minutes. Common Sense Caution: Do not use on broken skin. Do not use immediately before or after sun exposure. Avoid if allergic to papain, aspirin or willow bark. Discontinue use if strong irritation develops. Do not use in the same 24 hour period with another physical or chemical exfoliant as this could over-exfoliate and irritate the skin.
