Pyruvic acid

Pyruvic Acid is a colourless liquid organic acid and is a metabolite of glycolosis found naturally in the skin. It is a peeling agent for actinically damaged skin. Pyruvic acid breaks down corneodesmosome bonds, improving skin texture.

Continued treatment with P.A. helps to re-establish a superficial microcirculation, reducing sallowness and restoring a healthier, more youthful skin tone. Improvement of fine lines and pigmentation has also been noted.
