The outer layer of our skin, the Stratum Corneum is replaced every 2 weeks. However, this process can slow down due to hormonal changes and aging, making exfoliation an important part of our skin care routine.
The aim of exfoliation is to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, preventing both bacteria and sebum becoming trapped.
When this renewal process slows it can also cause breakouts, dry patches, wrinkles and dullness.
H E R O is formulated with Lactobacillus/Papaya Fruit Ferment Extract + Bakuchiol to encourage effective exfoliation.
The enzyme Papain, found in the Papaya fruit promotes gentle, yet effective exfoliation of dead skin cells.
Papain breaks the bonds holding the dead cells together, gradually revealing fresh looking skin.
