Today, commercially available exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids and retinoids, are synthetic chemicals that cause adverse reactions. There is a need for natural exfoliants that are effective and non-irritating.
Proteolytic enzymes in the cosmetic industry reduce signs of ageing by improving natural defence systems and by preventing the skin from the ravages of time and environmental attack. These enzymes remove the stratum corneum (upper most layer of the epidermis), enhancing the penetration of active ingredients.
Fruzyme protease’s Bellozyme™ is an excellent natural exfoliant. It helps reduce brown spots, skin ulcers and burn wounds. Bellozyme™ also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and enables skin peeling and soothing. It can also be used in dentistry to remove protein stains like coffee, tobacco and red wine.
