Enzymes are proteins which perform a specific function. The enzymes used for exfoliation in skincare are protease (or proteolytic) enzymes, which break down other proteins, including those keeping your older, outer layers of skin stuck on.

They increase cell renewal, help smooth skin texture and reduce acne scars and pigmentation.
