Mandelic Peel 22 - 40+


Product Description

CERTIFIED Mandelic Acid Peel

Free Acid Value = 22 or 40 *Learn about FAV here

This mandelic acid face peel is of the buffered variety. Buffering raises the pH level of the acid so that it does not react too quickly to be dangerous. Mandelic is excellent for all skin types including Rosacea (at 22%). A large molecule equals less irritation. All skin types. Excellent for Fine lines, Acne-Rosacea, Pigmentation and ACNE! Antibacterial and antiseptic. Prepare your skin with exfoliating products (Retinol/RetinA/Glycolic Serum) for at least 2-3 weeks prior to beginning your regimen.

Choose from one of two available percentages:

  • Level 1 Mandelic & Azelaic 22% (2.5pH) - Excellent for teens, sensitive skin, those with Rosacea and anyone looking to improve their skin.
  • Level 2 Mandelic 40%+ (2.5pH)  - Looking for more results than the 22. Expect more flaking.

**Fact! - Mandelic has a very large molecule which gives it is low irritation factor - but it has a stronger pk level than glycolic acid - and that gives it great "action". Mandelic is derived from an extract of bitter almonds, but will not cause allergic issues.

Chemical peels are great for use as:

  • Anti aging treatments
  • Acne treatments>
  • Scar treatments
  • Refreshening of the skin.

If you are searching for these general types of skin improvements, then Mandelic is the acid choice for you. It is great for:

  • Rosacea treatment (*Only the 22, not the 40) due to its ability to reduce inflammation.
  • Stubborn acne. Many patients can control their acne with Mandelic acid without the need for antibiotics or excessively irritating products.
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Dramatic improvement (as with a glycolic treatment) but without the irritation or post-inflammatory pigmentation often seen with other AHA acids.
  • Rapidly improve skin texture and sustain the effect over several months.
  • Reducing pigmentation, brown spots and large freckles.
  • Treating mild to moderate acne (both comedonal and inflammatory).
  • Antibacterial acne treatment which works by stopping growth of skin bacteria that causes acne and by keeping the pore follicles clear.
  • Skin pigmentation treatment including Melasma and post-inflammatory pigmentation - particularly those with darker skin types.
  • Alternative to hydroquinone due to its Tyrosinase inhibition properties (reducing melanin production).

Once your skin has acclimated to the 40% you may want to try TCA 13 for more visible peeling.

PSC has transformed my skin. I look better at 46 than I did in my 20's. More toned, greater clarity, a general vibrance in my skin that gets compliments often. I recently added this peel to my protocol, using it once per week with fantastic results. I am a fan of the glycolic, TCA, and salicylic peels, but this new peel produces super results with no redness or peeling. I highly recommend this peel!

Anna, Verified Buyer 03/21/14

LOVE THIS STUFF I have tried other products with Mandelic Azelaic and it was just ehhh. This stuff however works fantastic with my skin. I get super oily in the summer months and I just HATE my skin. We have already had some warm days and this has really helped with the oil production and is keeping my pores small. I will never be without this stuff. I know I am only to use this once a week... but I have used it several w/o any negative issues.. all I know it's keeping my face clearer than it's ever been and I love it!

GREAT PEEL FOR OILY SKIN LOVE LOVE LOVE This peel it has help me be acne free! I highly recommened it! AMAZING!!!!!! Thank you Platinum Skin Care.

KIMBERLY C., Verified Buyer 01/30/15

First time I ever used this, And have finished second peel. I left it on a little longer and two days later I am starting to peel. Definetly exfoliates and I'll need much more time to see if this addresses hyper-pigmentation issues. So far, I think I like it better than the Glycolic.

CHRISTINE C., Verified Buyer 01/17/15

I love this product! When I use it my skin looks 5 years younger and people around me notice!!

  1. My skin has never looked better! 5 5 Stars

    Posted by on

    I have mild rosacea and very sensitive skin, so I was hesitant to try an at-home peel. The Mandelic Azelaic 22 was recommended for skin with rosacea, so I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad I did! The peel burns just a little after it sits a few minutes but is totally bearable. My skin is slightly redder on the day I use the peel, but by the next day is smooth, flake-free, and my little red bumps are diminished by at least half. I'm so happy with the peel that I'm finally going to try your cleanser and moisturizer as well. :-)

  3. Love the peel! 5 5 Stars

    I have only used this peel once a week for three weeks now, but I can tell a difference in the fine lines on my forehead. They are already softer and will hopefully continue to improve as I use it weekly. The great thing about this peel is that you can use it weekly and there is very little irritation, unlike the Glycolic peel, but the results are the same.

  8. I Love Platinum Skincare - Best Peels you can buy! 5 5 Stars

    Posted by on

    I have used the Mandelic 22 and 40. Both work great. I flake with the 22 and same with the 40 but more intense and obvious flake with the 40. No irritation or discomfort at all. In fact, I have slight milk allergies and react to lactic acid peels with sporadic but painful inflamed hives. The Mandelic 40 has lactic acid in it yet I had zero reaction, no irritation, not one hive. That REALLY speaks to the lack of irritation that exists with Paltinum Skincare's Madelic 40 pro peel. Like every other acid available through Platinum Skincare, this peel rocks. I have even started to give my husband peels because he was jealous of my constantly improving skin texture.

  9. Fantastic peel. Gentle yet very 5 5 Stars

    Posted by on

    Fantastic peel. Gentle yet very effective. I mix 5 or 6 drops into a Lactic/Salycilic acid cream and apply to face and neck and go to sleep. I do not rinse it off. No redness or burn. Just getting a nice glow and a mild flaky skin(peel) after 3 days of use. Then stop for 1 week and start again. It's definitely keeping my skin looking young and smooth

  10. Started with Mandelic Peel 22 3 5 Stars

    Posted by on

    I started with the Mandelic peel 22% and it was working, but I had to apply more frequently to see results. At almost 50 years old, I still get acne, on the chin area, but it's not cystic. I switched to the 40% and only needed to apply once a week/once every 2 weeks. The Mandelic 40% caused skin dryness and slight peeling, so I only used it as a spot treatment for my blemishes. It still caused some dryness, but it was isolated. Just recently went back to the Mandelic 22% and it works on my acne as well as smoothing my skin and wrinkles. I think the Mandelic 40% worked a little better on my skin, but I didn't care for the flaking skin.
