Perricone MD, a cosmeceuticals brand founded by Dr. Nicholas Perricone in 1997, has recently launched a daily no-peel peel product and it is the new BLUE PLASMA. This non-acidic daily peel for brightening and radiance, is scientifically formulated to deliver the benefits of a more traditional peel, without the side effects.
For years, Dr. Perricone has warned against the use of harsh chemical peels and abrasive exfoliators as methods to unveil new skin surface. Whether administered in spas, doctor’s offices, or purchased over the counter, their effects are not potentially damaging short term, but can impact skin’s long-term health. In addition, traditional peels can be acidic and work by “assaulting” the skin surface to get results. They essentially burn the skin off, attacking both dead and healthy skin cells, that often leads to redness, irritation and sensitivity. Scrub-like exfoliators create micro-tears on the surface, making skin more thin or fragile over time.
Upon spending years researching alternatives that deliver the same surface benefits without causing damage or irritation to the skin, Dr. Perricone created BLUE PLASMA.
Through bio-specific technology, BLUE PLASMA performs three synergistic modes of action :
First, with bio-specific accuracy, it peels only dead skin cells, accelerating cell renewal and turnover that naturally slows down as we age. Second, it micro-extracts surface debris with deep action and purifies the skin of build-up and pollutants. Third, it hydro-fuses the skin with nutrient-rich water.
BLUE PLASMA is claimed to see results including :
- Resurfacing of the skin
- Luxurious luminosity, radiance & clarity
- Improved light reflectivity with increased brightness and glow
- Unparalleled softness and smoothness
- Plumpness of lines & wrinkles and reduction in pore size
The Power of NO :
- No skin damage
- No micro-tears or abrasions
- No dryness, no flaking
- No environmental sensitivity
- No downtime
The Key Ingredients include :
- Salmon Egg Enzyme - Big-specific peeling agent that tackles only dead skin cells
- L-Carnitine - Extracts, unclogs, purifies and promotes cell-turnover, embodies natural hydrating qualities
- Pterostilbene - Historically found in blueberries, antioxidant-rich; delivers radiance and brightening benefits
- Honokiol & Magnolol - Extracts of magnolia bark; powerful anti-inflammatory and very soothing
- Copper - Helps repair and promote skin health; naturally contributes to the gorgeous blue color of Blue Plasma
BLUE PLASMA is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and synthetic fragrances. Urea (3rd ingredient) and gluconolactone (6th ingredient) act as a leave-on exfoliant. Not comfortable about two ingredients – the last ingredient “Blue 1 (CI 42090)”, a coloring agent and menthyl lactate, a potential skin irritant.
BLUE PLASMA is claimed to be ideal for all skin types and skin conditions, including sensitive skin.
BLUE PLASMA has a light blue fluid texture that absorbs into the skin easily.
I’m glad to receive a full bottle to try it out. Many thanks to Luxasia Singapore.
Dr. Perricone recommends applying BLUE PLASMA daily after proper cleansing. It can be applied during the day or night. Begin by cleansing the skin then follow with BLUE PLASMA and your recommended treatment. No rinsing is required.
