Soft scrubbing exfoliating gel, 95 g
Principle of the effect
Peeling carefully scrubs the skin and provides deep cleansing. Exfoliating gel action is similar to eraser: it picks up keratinized cells of the epidermis and immediately smoothes the skin surface. Innovative complex of the elements, identical to the structural skin components, vitamins and antioxidants, stimulates the cell regeneration necessary to sustain the skin vitality and youth.
- Peeling gently exfoliates the skin and smoothes its texture.
- Brings back the natural skin shining, improves skin oxygen supply.
- Evens out skin complexion, fights against grayish and ashy skin tone.
- Stimulates regeneration process in the skin cells.
- Narrows cutaneous pores.
- Lightens pigmentation, post-acne and spots after skin damage.
- Relieves face contour swelling.
- Immediately softens the skin and makes it silky.
- Protects the skin by restoring its lipid barrier.
Peeling is hypoallergic, does not contain perfume additives, colorants, mechanical scrubbing particles, acids, alkalis and other components aggressive towards the skin. Fit for sensitive skin, does not dry the skin and does not raise its sensitivity towards UV-light.
Barm extract is a combination of flavanoids, sugars, vitamins and amino acids. Due to the high concentration of B groups vitamins, it serves as a stimulator for cell energy and facilitates skin oxygen supply. It possesses strong antioxidant properties, significantly lowers negative effects of free radicals to the cells. It stimulates the synthesis of glycosaminoglycan, helps to accumulate and hold moisture in the skin, and increases elasticity factors. It evens the face complexion, removes ashy skin tone. Regulates the lipids and proteins exchange by monitoring the level of greasiness and dryness, helps to stimulate fibroblasts activity: these cells take part in synthesis of collagen and elastin. Barm extract mostly functions as a rejuvenating component that allows quick regeneration of the skin cells.
Bitter orange flowers extract is a plant-extracted product rich with flavanoids. It stimulates lipolysis (breakdown of fats) in subcutaneous fat, activates metabolism, provides anti-swelling effect, stimulates the generation of collagen and regulates the work of adipose glands. Orange flowers extract helps to soften dry and withering skin, relieve inflammation and protect the face from adverse effect of the environment.
Retinyl palmitat is a stabilized form of retinol (vitamin А). In combination with vitamins Е and С, it softens and improves the skin texture, prevents the appearance of pigmented spots, prevents wrinkles by helping to synthesize collagen and glycosaminoglycan that maintain elasticity and the necessary skin moisture content.
Vitamin Е protects retinol against destructive effect of UV-light, also works as an antioxidant and protects the cells against damage caused by free radicals.
Pantenol (Provitamin B5) moisturizes, keeps moisture, and softens the skin.
As one of the peeling components, peptide complex provides lifting effect stimulating intercellular exchange and skin tone. It influences the most important proteins of dermoepidermal junction (junction of derma and epidermis). Damage of this junction leads to skin sagginess, flagging and laxity. Peptide combination facilitates the strengthening of skin structural integrity and retaining of its elasticity.
Dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate is a peptide with low molecular mass. It prevents the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles and relaxes them. It suppresses the transmission of nerve impulses to receptor cells of facial muscles under the skin and creates cosmetic effect similar to Botox, thus helping to reduce mimic wrinkles.
Palmitoil dipeptide-5 diaminobutyroil hydroxytreonin and Palmitoil dipeptide-5 diamino hydroxybutyrate is a functional complex of two types of peptides. It influences the most important proteins of dermoepidermal junction that provide the «adhesion» of derma and epidermis.
Hydrolyzed collagen is a low-molecular form of collagen split down to small particles capable of penetrating into the skin. The use of cosmetics with low-molecular collagen and elastin compounds helps to reduce the loss of moisture and facilitates the restoration of the skin elasticity.
Gel ingredients similar to the natural skin components restore its protective lipid barrier. This is very important after the peeling procedure.
Squalane is a lipid that serves as a component of the protective barrier. Adipose glands generate squalane near the skin surface and maintain its barrier function. The generation of squalane keeps on increasing until the age of 23, and later begins to drop. By the age of 50, the amount of squalane in sebum does not usually exceed 5%. In Shiawasedo laboratory products, plant-based squalane extracted from olive is used. Squalane is a component compatible to the maximum. It immediately penetrates the skin, providing softness and moisture. It is particularly fit for dry, cracked and scurfy skin. Squalane also helps to prevent pigmentation (including senile) and skin damage done by UV-light.
Hydrolyzed lecithin is another structural component of the skin cells within the peeling. Professional description of lecithin is phosphotide; it is a cell membrane component. The integrity of cell membrane is essential for functioning of derma and epidermis cells. In the course of aging, the number of phosphotides decreases, cells lose their shape and the skin is no longer elastic and unable to resist aggressive environmental factors. In the end, massive damage to cell membranes facilitates aging because the skin cannot fight against the pressure of toxins and free radicals. Hydrolyzed lecithin stimulates lipid exchange, helps to restore skin protective function, and transfers other nutritive ingredients to the cells.
Ceramides 2 (Ceramides NG) in liposomal form possess improved penetrability and intensive moisturizing effect. As they are considered to be the crucial structural components of the skin protective layer, their content in cosmetic products enables to restore and maintain epidermis protective functions. They are essential for cell membranes and serve as signal molecules. The number and composition of ceramides influence directly on the processes of the cell division, growth, aging and dying. Besides, ceramides function as the natural protection from dangerous bacteria and contamination. With age, the number of ceramides in the skin decreases. This is one of the reasons for the increasing of skin dryness with age. In addition, skin dryness is also caused by aggressive cleansing products that disturb lipid balance, as well as by medicines for the decrease of cholesterol levels. These medicines are supposed to decrease the number of lipids only in blood but in fact, they also have a negative effect on the skin.
Peeling works like an eraser: polymers as components of the exfoliating gel capture and remove keratinized cells of the epidermis and contamination, immediately smoothing the skin texture. Freedom from chemical impact on skin using acids and alkali makes the product gentle towards the skin to the utmost and enables its usage even on the most sensitive skin areas. At the same time, the absence of mechanical exfoliating particles completely precludes the risk of skin damage during the procedure. Peeling perfectly evens the epidermis texture without touching its lower layer and does not irritate the skin.
Complex of the innovative antioxidants and extracts enables the peeling to fight against oxidizing skin stress.
Edelweiss extract is a plant-extracted product possessing the strong protective qualities that help the flower to survive in the severe climate of the Alpine highlands under aggressive mountain sun with high UV-light level, under sudden and frequent temperature drops, strong winds, snow storms, low atmospheric pressure. It is a powerful antioxidant, protects the skin from free radicals and their action, one of the main causes of the aging process.
Extract of alpine scullcap flowers, leaves, stems is a product extracted from a rare plant growing on the slopes of the Alps. It is rich with oenotein-B that prevents the secretion of excessive skin fat (sebum) and contains a large number of flavanoids that has intensive anti-inflammatory effect. It stimulates the synthesis of beta-endorphin that helps to protect the skin from stress.
Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitat is vitamin C in liposomal form. It is easily absorbed in the skin, protects Retinol and Vitamin Е (as well as other antioxidants) from oxidation, protects the skin from UV-light, and reduces the aging process.
Due to moisturizing components, peeling gel is the all-in-one product for your care that can be used independently, without any other products of the line.
Stem cells extract from alpine rose leaves is the cultivated stem cells extract taken from the leaves of Alpine rose that grow in uplands of the Swiss Alps. It stimulates the skin stem cells, protects against the loss of moisture, UV-light exposure, and other negative environmental factors.
Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer (3D-hyaluronic acid) is a modified form of hyaluronic acid that provides long-term moisturizing. Molecules of common hyaluronic acid connected in linear chains are quick to be released and spent. 3D intermolecular structure of sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer holds molecules better and gradually releases them. As a result, molecules of hyaluronic acid remain whole (not split) on the skin surface longer, thus binding and holding moisture for a longer time.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the most important structural elements of skin. Its main function is to bound and hold moisture. One molecule of hyaluronic acid is capable of holding up to 1000 molecules of water. Hyaluronic acid also contributes greatly to providing optimal conditions for cells functioning (it serves as a system for interstellar supply of many active components necessary for the skin health, stimulates the synthesis of collagen and plays an important part in the process of epidermis renewal, as well as protects cells against damage caused by free radicals).
The young skin continuously provides synthesis of hyaluronic acid. However, age-specific changes (they start to show around the age of 22) and skin damage by UV-light lead to the steady decrease of hyaluronic acid synthesis. As a result, the skin looses moisture, elasticity, and deteriorates. In order to stop the loss of moisture and fight against the aging process, it is advised to additionally saturate the face skin with moisture. Skin hydration can be carried out using low-molecular compounds of hyaluronic acid.
Common molecule of hyaluronic acid is too large and is not capable of penetrating through small intercellular spaces of the surface skin layer. That’s why, when the common form of hyaluronic acid is applied, it remains only on the skin surface, forming a light film that tends to be removed during washing.
Shiawasedo Laboratory uses hydrolyzed or low-molecular hyaluronic acid*. This type of hyaluronic acid not only covers the skin surface but also penetrates inside** due to low molecular size. It moisturizes skin from within and on the outside. Unlike common form of hyaluronic acid, molecules of hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid cannot be washed by water as they penetrate the skin deeply and continue working after washing. The applied low-molecular form of hyaluronic acid holds twice as much moisture as common hyaluronic acid***. After the use of low-molecular hyaluronic acid, the actual moisture content of the skin increases****, and skin acquires soft and silky texture*****.
* Low-molecular form of hyaluronic acid is obtained by molecule breakdown (hydrolysis) to smaller particles and called hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid.
** Confirmed by laboratory tests.

Use 2 or 3 times a week. Apply a sufficient amount of peeling (press the pomp 2 or 3 times) onto the cleansed dry skin and scrub with careful massaging motions, avoiding areas around eyes. The procedure takes from 30 seconds up to 1 minute. Wash away the remaining product with warm water; apply lotion and your usual care. Peeling must not get solidified on the skin. If you want to perform the procedure on the neck and/or décolleté areas, the process needs to be divided into stages: peeling of the neck area at first, then the face peeling. The procedure will be less effective if it is performed in a room with high humidity or with wet hands on the wet skin.
Do not use with skin damage, edema, eczema, irritation and other problems. If the product is not suitable for your skin — as well as in case of any discomfort or irritation — stop using it immediately and consult the dermatologist. Make sure to prevent it from getting into your eyes.
If the product has gotten into your eyes, wash it away immediately with enough water. Do not store the product at a very high or low temperature; keep it away from direct sunlight. Store it in places inaccessible for children.

В сентябре 2018-го пилинг-гель выходит под маркой Summus, обновился его состав, а упаковка стала более удобной - 95г можно брать с собой даже в ручную кладь самолета.
До нашего знакомства слово "пилинг" вызывало у меня картинки из фильмов ужасов (красное лицо, непременно с лохмотьями облезающего верхнего слоя кожи, блеск пробирок с кислотами, зловещий хохот косметолога... :) брррр!)
Забудьте об этом!
Легкая и нежная текстура, никаких абразивных частичек, кислот и щелочей, никакого химического запаха, бережный и супер-эффективный уход - все это благодаря передовым разработкам лаборатории Shiawasedo.
О том, за что отвечает каждый элемент в составе пилинга, можно прочитать в описании продукта на сайте компании.
Самое главное о пилинге:
*) его разрешается использовать не только в холодное время года, но и летом - даже обладателям гипоаллергенной или чувствительной кожи
*) достаточно 2 - 3 раз в неделю, не обманитесь мягким воздействием пилинга, в данном случае чаще - не лучше
*) наносить пилинг нужно на сухое чистое лицо (это значит, вы уже сняли косметику и умылись пенкой), достаточно 2 - 3 нажатий помпы - это количество геля покроет лицо ровным плотным слоем
*) можно подождать 10 секунд - гель не должен засохнуть на лице - и потом мягкими движениями, "скатать" его с кожи, как ластик (не нужно тереть кожу с силой), затем умыться теплой водой
*) не стоит одновременно наносить пилинг на лицо и шею - лучше очистить эти зоны поочередно
*) если вы первый раз пользуетесь пилингом, подберите температуру воды опытным путем - она должна быть чуть теплее температуры тела (мой опыт), чуть теплее или чуть холоднее - и частички пилинга могут начать "цепляться" за кожу. Мы ведь хотим наслаждаться эффектом чистоты, а не разочаровываться в отличном продукте, "сварив" его при неправильном применении, правда?
*) после очищения пилингом и умывания на чистую сухую кожу нужно нанести крем для лица или любую из сывороток, которыми вы пользуетесь (стоит ли говорить, что у меня это средство из линейки Summus)
*) секрет Золушки - если нужно срочно привести себя в порядок, сразу после пилинга надеваем маску Summus (я предпочитаю классическую). Эффект будет моментальным!
Только учтите, что это рецепт не для частого использования - ведь и Золушка не каждый день ездила на балы ;)
Мои любимые комбинации для пилинга:
*** классическая маска в рецепте от Золушки
** сыворотка white serum после пилинга для усиления отбеливающего эффекта
* очищающая маска, особенно летом - но не сразу после пилинга, а на следующий день
Подобрать свой вариант можно путем проб и ошибок, а можно воспользоваться одним из календарей ухода - это расписание использования продуктов на каждый день недели/месяца. Варианты календарей доступны в отдельном фотоальбоме на страничке компании в Facebook.
