Proliferation

Purge

Pustule

Panthenol

On the skin surface, acts as a humectant and moisturizes.  A small molecule, it easily penetrates the skin and is converted into pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) which is found in every living cell and is a normal constituent of healthy skin.  It promotes normal keratinization and is known for its exceptional healing property.

Peppermint Oil

Antibacterial, cooling, refreshing properties.  Stimulates micro-circulation.

Papain

Enzyme from papaya that dissolves and digests dead skin cells.  Softens impactions and gently lifts unwanted pigment from the skin’s surface.

Pyridoxine Dipalmitate

(Vitamin B6)  acts as a sebo-regulating agent that reduces sebum and inhibits the enzyme DHT that is responsible for excess sebum.  Prevents the formation of comedones.

Pineapple

Enzymatic action helps dissolve surface dead skin cells.

Petrolatum

Accelerates the recovery of skin surface lipids as it permeates throughout the Corneum layer, allowing normal barrier recovery despite its occlusive properties.  Increases the rate of tissue healing.

Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 

Peptides composed of amino acids that act as “feedback peptides,” selected natural messengers that act specifically on the cells of the dermis, signaling them to synthesize connective tissue composed of collagen I, III, IV, Hyaluronic Acid and Glucosaminoglycans.  Firms the skin and decreases lines and wrinkles.
