RATIONALE Enzyme Reactivators are a collection of professional strength Organic Hydroxy Acids designed to target particular skin concerns and recalibrate skin pH to a more healthy acidic level.

Powerfully active, these Enzyme Reactivators are carefully selected after thorough skin analysis and tailored to suit the barrier function of the skin as it presents on the day. These skin identical formulas ensure maximum efficacy and minimal irritancy when customised conservatively to achieve optimal radiance with no downtime. The result is a strong, healthy barrier and a youthful luminous complexion.


Three types of Hydroxy Acids

Pyruvic Acid
• Alpha-Keto Hydroxy Acid (AKHA) targeting sensitivity, redness, solar damage, dullness, inflamed acne and pigmentation
• Generally, the mildest of the clinical-strength Enzyme Reactivators in the RATIONALE Professional Range; usually prescribed for clients beginning their treatment plan
• Typically induces either a warmth, a coolness or a mild ‘tingling’ sensation

Lactic Acid
• Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) targeting solar ageing, hyperpigmentation, dryness and dehydration
• Generally, the strongest and more cautiously prescribed clinical-strength Enzyme Reactivator in the RATIONALE Professional Range
• Typically induces a stronger ’tingling’ or ‘itching’ sensation

Salicylic Acid
• Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) targeting acne, congestion, excessive sebum production and inflammatory conditions
• Generally, used for the more specific treatment of acne and sebaceous skin conditions; either to spot treat or patch treat particular areas where oil or inflammation is of concern
• Typically induces a sharper ‘prickling’ or ‘spicy’ sensation

About the treatment

RATIONALE PreActivator is applied prior, which is a gentle preparatory gel complex designed to amplify and enhance the results of Enzyme Reactivation during professional RATIONALE treatments. Lactic and Amino Acids work synergistically to gently reactivate skin enzymes and optimise barrier function while skin minerals such as Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium regulate the skin’s moisture gradient and boost intercellular communication.

20 Minute LED Light Therapy is included in all of our RATIONALE Enzyme Treatments.

*Clients should be using an exfoliation serum for 1-2 weeks’ minimum as a prep for the use of any RATIONALE Enzyme Reactivator strength higher than a 2% Pyruvic Acid. Exceptions to this rule may be made upon therapist discretion whereby skin has been thoroughly assessed and deemed exceptionally resilient due to the preparation of the skin with cosmeceutical actives prior to the treatment.
