When creating the This is Me Enzyme mask there was a very clear mission coming straight from the top (aka Phoebe). Develop a natural and gentle liquid exfoliator that would not only renew, smooth, and brighten but also clear blemishes.
These days using Benzyl Peroxide and Tea tree oil to help clear breakouts and glycolic acid to resurface the skin is like using a computer with Windows 95.
Instead we have carefully curated a range of new and old ingredients to provide the best balance for your skin.

AHA - Alpha Hydroxy acids like glycolic acid and lactic acid have been the mainstay of peels and exfoliators for decades. They are extremely effective but when used incorrectly can damage your skin. As no one wants an acid burn we have included AHA’s from fruit extracts. A combination of Bilberry, Sugar, maple, lemon and orange extracts have naturally occurring glycolic, lactic, tartaric, malic and citric acid which provide a gentle exfoliating and skin renewal action.
