Enzymatic and mechanical scrub with Silk 5 Peel

Skin care in recent years has become one of the most examined topics: millions of articles, expert interviews, reels, stories, and more to explain in great detail what Gen Z calls a “Skincare Routine”. This is because to have flawless skin, both on the face and body, one cannot neglect a proper Skincare Routine that includes several steps, one of which is the exfoliation of the skin’s most superficial layer through scrubbing.
Exfoliation should be a regular appointment if your goal is to have brighter, softer, and younger-looking skin.

Enzymatic and Mechanical Scrub: the differences

The scrub is a fundamental step in every Beauty Routine and completes the cleansing step by promoting the removal of dead cells and further impurities. There are two different types of scrubs: enzymatic or mechanical.

In the mechanical scrub, there are micro granules that, when applied to the skin with circular movements, are able – thanks to their “mechanical action” of rubbing – to eliminate dead skin cells. A real boon (benefit) that promotes cellular turnover, giving the skin a new brightness and softness.
In the case of the enzymatic scrub, the exfoliation action is mediated by specific enzymes capable of binding with the cells in the shedding phase, promoting their elimination.
The enzymes in question can be either alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or beta hydroxy acids (BHA) and are mostly of natural origin, they are also known as “fruit acids”.
Their function is to perform a gentle scrub capable of exfoliating the skin and stimulating the production of new cells and collagen at the same time. Thanks to the exfoliating process, they promote the reduction of skin spots and also have beneficial effects on acne.

Enzymatic and Mechanical Scrub: the functions

As we have just seen, enzymatic and mechanical scrubs are not synonymous, but the result in both cases is the same: to revitalize dull, dry skin with uneven color.
Exfoliation through both enzymatic and mechanical scrubbing is a necessary step to oxygenate the tissues and restore the brightness and softness to the skin that are progressively lost due to the passage of time, external and/or genetic factors.
The process of cellular regeneration is a natural process that slows down over time, and it is therefore necessary to stimulate it, to obtain younger-looking and healthier skin.
 Among these numerous benefits, one cannot overlook the function of both types of scrubs in facilitating the absorption of the active ingredients of subsequent treatments into the deeper layers of the epidermis.

Silk 5 Peel: 2 in 1 Scrub

Considering the importance of a good exfoliation, SurgicTouch has formulated a new 2 in 1 smoothing and cleansing cream scrub.

But let’s get into the details.

The enzymatic and mechanical scrub SILK 5 PEEL combines the action of 5 acids with exfoliating properties (enzymatic action) with that of vegetable micro granules (mechanical action) and is perfect for use on both, face and body.
 Its creamy formula, more delicate and emollient, is also ideal for the most sensitive skin and in general for all thickened, dry skin that has partially lost its softness and elasticity.

Last but not least: its compact format of only 100 ml is perfect to be taken on trips and follow you throughout the summer!
