The creators of the original glycolic acid peel are excited to unveil another, chemical peel safe for at-home use - the Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10. This one-step, leave-on daily peel is formulated to exfoliate and deliver potent antioxidant protection for everyday defense against aging. 10% Citric Acid, a well known antioxidant and anti-ager found in citrus fruits, exfoliates and prepares skin for moisturizer absorption and smooth makeup application without downtime. The antioxidant power of Citric Acid neutralizes damaging free radicals brought on by daily environmental exposure to help prevent signs of aging. Easy one-step pad does not require rinsing or neutralizing. Fragrance-Free, Dye-Free, Paba-Free.
Size: 36 pads (including 1 test pad) + peel solution, 1.9 fl oz
When should the Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 be used vs. Performance Peel AP25? Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 should be used twice weekly to diminish the existing visible signs of aging, and Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 should be used for daily exfoliation and to help prevent future signs of aging.
"The skin is constantly shedding and renewing itself. Failure of old cells to slough off leads to a dull, more aged appearance to the skin. This peel is an innovative way to incorporate gentle exfoliation and antioxidant protection into your daily routine with one easy swipe. It's formulated by the dermatologists who created the original glycolic peel, and utilizes 10% Citric Acid to scavenge damaging free radicals brought on by environmental exposure and help prevent future signs of aging. I recommend using it between office visits to help refine texture, smooth fine lines, even skin discoloration, and help diminish the appearance of acne scars and environmental damage." -Dr. Julie K. Karen, board certified dermatologist in NYC.
Key Ingredients: Citric Acid, Arginine
For Sensitive Skin: We suggest using the test peel on a small, inconspicuous part of your face OR on the sides of the nose (nasolabial folds) where stinging is most likely to occur to determine your sensitivity to this product. With all acid peels, a slight tingling or tightness is expected, but if you notice bothersome stinging we recommend using this peel every other day or less frequently, as tolerated. If your skin feels uncomfortable at any time, the peel can be rinsed off. Apply a gentle PHA or bionic cream over it such as Exuviance Ultra Restorative Creme, Exuviance Evening Restorative Cream or Exuviance Multi-Protective Day Creme.
For Non-Sensitive Skin: These pads are super-saturated, so after you apply to your face we suggest using the excess on your hands and chest to deliver a daily antioxidant boost to these age-prone areas also.
For Retinol / Retin-A Users: For best results, we recommend using Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 in the morning and your retinol products at night time as tolerated. If your retinol product has SPF in it for daytime use, we suggest using Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 at night before bed. For Retin-A users, use Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 2 times per week and increase to daily use as tolerated.

Can Citric Acid over-exfoliate the skin? No. In a clinical study with even higher concentrations, CA did not result in thinning of the stratum corneum.
