Enzymes?! What are they?

Enzymes are a big BUZZ word at the moment in the beauty industry. Well, they have been around forever but you guys are really only just becoming aware of their absolute awesomeness.

The meaning of an enzyme:

A substance produced by a living organism which acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction.

In real language that means:

Enzymes are molecules that help exfoliate the skin by dissolving the redundant cells on the very top layer of the skin.

The enzymes used in the salon are a fruit derivative.



*Mango and


All these types of enzymes happily munch up old tired redundant cells, while being perfectly safe and natural for the skin.

Why do we love them so much?

Because they are natural and safe for all skin types! Sometimes microdermabrasion is to abrasive or harsh for sensitive skins and can do more damage than good. Have you ever been really like REALLY red after a microdermabrasion or your skin feels sensitive to touch for a few days later? Micro is good for thicken built up tough skin – but not for the more fragile thinner skins.
They are also great to use at home. Some beads/grains no matter how fine the texture can be all too much rolling around the skin again causing more inflammation and little micro tears than exfoliating.
Enzymes in homecare can gentle but still effectively remove your redundant cells and INSTANTLY brighten your complexion.

Enzymes are a great first treatment in the salon if you have never had a treatment before as the gentle and yet still very effective. They are broken down and dissolve all the redundant cells which do 2 major things for your skin

1. Instantly brighten your complexion – Think even skin tone, reduce redness, glowing skin.

2. When your skin exfoliates it sends a message down to the basal layer to start creating more cells. When the basal layer is pumping out new cells it creates a plump skin. Fine lines and wrinkles become less apparent.

So if you feel like your skin needs a pick me up – or you have never had a treatment before and want to start taking care of your skin – this is the treatment you need to try and see why WE LOVE ENZYMES so much.
