- 30% Protease Enzyme: YOUTH Firm Complex: Proprietary ingredient, exclusive to GlyMed Plus. Includes a 30% Protease enzyme (Mucor Meihei Extract) which mimics the Cathepsin-D enzyme found naturally in our skin and is therefore readily recognized. This enzyme is responsible for the orderly and specific manner of shedding and digestion of cells after cellular death and under certain abnormal conditions which provides for a healthy epidermis at a rate that is balanced by the mitoic development of NEW cells in the basal layer.
- Mucor Meihei Extract: Mucor Meihei Extract (Japanese Mushroom) A newly discovered cosmetic breakthrough that has been proven in clinical studies to improve the appearance of fine lines and increase hydration. This patented mushroom extract4 is said to be an efficient enzyme producing enzymes that mimic the skins own natural ability to exfoliate. In research laboratories it was discovered that this enzyme produces peptides that bring balance to the skin.
- Citric Acid9: Citric acid is a normal component of human cells that is metabolized, degraded, and eliminated from the body. Citric acid acts like an antioxidant and assists in regeneration of skin tissue and slowing down the aging process.
After cleansing, apply YOUTH Firm Age Defying Peel to warm, damp skin for 3-7 minutes then apply a warm, damp facial cloth to facial area for 30 seconds, remove. Rinse with tepid water. Follow with your GlyMed Plus skin care regimen.
