When most of us think about chemical peels, we often think about high percentage actives that can do a ton of good, but if used incorrectly, can do a ton of bad as well. The Kiehl’s team wanted to take the iconic chemical peel and give it a little bit of a lift. The result was the Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro Peel Concentrate. This product combines a number of key active ingredients that were designed to resurface the skin without unnecessarily stripping or drying out the skin. That being said, you won’t find the traditional trio of exfoliating acids including lactic, glycolic and salicylic in this product. Instead, the Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro Peel Concentrate utilizes sustainably sourced quinoa husk extract, cactus extract and phytic acid. Quinoa husk extract and phytic acid act as the main exfoliants in this formula, which work to remove dead skin cells and brighten up the overall complexion. Cactus fruit extract on the other hand is packed with antioxidants which help to protect and reinforce the skin against environmental stressors.
