Acidic and basic are two extremes that describe chemicals, just like hot and cold are two extremes that describe temperature. Mixing acids and bases can
cancel out their extreme effects, much like mixing hot and cold water can even out water temperature. A substance that is neither acidic nor basic is
The pH scale measures how acidic or basic a substance is. It ranges from 0 to 14. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH greater than 7
Pure water is neutral, with a pH of 7.0. When chemicals are mixed with water, the mixture can become either acidic or basic. Vinegar and lemon juice are
acidic substances, while laundry detergents and bar soaps are basic or alkaline.
Sanitas recognizes pH manipulation as a fundamental strategy for stimulating skin biochemistry. Skin care products need to be below the skin’s pH of 4.5

pH is potential hydrogen on the scale. Acid solutions are primarily hydrogen ions. Alkaline
solutions are primarily hydroxyl ions (loss of hydrogen). Pure water ions are equal.
More about Toner
• Traditional toners consist of moisturizers, oils and
extracts that help soothe your skin.
• Astringents, which are generally alcohol-based,
tighten the skin and pores and remove oil.
• Fresheners work similarly to astringents by
tightening the skin, but they are made of
ingredients like caffeine and green tea instead of
• Toners work to balance the skin, particularly after
using a cleanser that can throw off pH balance.
1. Cleanse with Glycolic Citrus Cleanser.
2. Apply the Tri-Peel Pretreatment directly from the bottle onto a 2” gauze square. Using firm
pressure, apply to the face and neck. Beginning with the forehead work your way down the
face, ending with the neck and chest. On affected areas of hyperpigmentation, use a more
vigorous scrubbing movement. Allow the Tri-Peel Pretreatment to dry completely, do not rinse
off the solution.
3. Saturate a gauze square with TCA 10% . Using vertical strokes and firm pressure, begin applying
TCA 10% at the eyebrows and move up to the hairline. Repeat the forehead application process
horizontally. Use horizontal and vertical strokes to apply TCA 10% to the rest of the face,
neck and décolleté. Saturate the gauze square with peel solution as necessary to ensure an even
application of the product. (Chemical peels are technique sensitive so method of application will
affect the depth of the peel). Wait 7 to 10 minutes between each layer.
4. Apply a second layer of the TCA 10% . *Dependent upon skin type.
5. Apply a third layer of TCA 10% to the areas of hyperpigmentation only. Do not exceed three
layers. *Dependent upon skin type.
6. Protect with a layer of Solar Block.
7. Appropriate Sanítas Post Peel Kit – For best results it is important to use this kit after the peel
and between peels in the series for best results.
Estheticians: It may be more comfortable for the client to have a fan held near the face during
application of multiple layers.
*Applying a second and third layer will be dependent upon the erythema and the blanching level
of the skin. For clients that are higher Fitzpatrick or prone to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation,
begin by applying only one layer, (step 3) and add additional layers only to the hyperpigmented
areas of the face, neck and décolleté.

Sanítas offers a unique approach to sun protection. Many sun
care products feature toxic chemicals that do not offer full
spectrum protection from the sun and can actually accelerate the
aging process. At Sanítas we do not formulate our products using
toxic sunscreen chemicals or drugs. We feature topically
delivered sun protection nutrients that respect the skin and
enhance its inherent ability to protect itself. In addition to
providing full protection from UVA, UVB and UVC rays, Sanítas

Zinc Oxide in Sunscreen
• Provides an excellent barrier to the sun and other irritants.
• Somewhat astringent, antiseptic and antibacterial
• UVA and UVB protection and can contribute to or increase SPF.
• At the appropriate particle size, zinc oxide is transparent in the visible
light spectrum but opaque in the UVC Ranges, thereby avoiding a
whitening effect when incorporated into sunscreen preparations.
• FDA approved sunscreen chemical.
• Synergistic effect when combined with organic sunscreens.
• It is also used when a white color is desired for a product.
• It is obtained from zinc ore, a commonly found mineral and is
• In 1938, Franz Greiter first invented commercially available sunscreen, Glacier Cream.
The active component consisted of zinc oxide. Zinc oxide acts as a physical barrier that
sits on the surface of your skin; it offers the same protection as wearing a long sleeve
• Zinc oxide has been approved by the FDA and has been shown to be photo-stable
against both UV-A and UV-B sun-rays. Because it is not absorbed into the skin, it is
nonirritating, non-allergenic, and non-comedogenic (does not cause acne).
• Today’s Micronized zinc oxide has the safety profile of traditional zinc oxide sunscreen
and is as aesthetically appealing as modern day sunscreens.
• What is Micronized Zinc Oxide: Micronized zinc oxide has been treated to reduce the
average size of its particles, producing an ultra-fine powder. Various terms like ultra-
fine, nano-sized, and micronized are used interchangeably. Nano-particles of zinc
oxide will not penetrate healthy human skin below the stratum corneum.
• When micronized zinc oxide is applied in the form of a lotion it is not absorbed into the
body, does not enter the bloodstream and has no dangerous side effects unless it is
• The biggest concern with nano-particles in cosmetics is the threat of inhalation when
they are used in powders and sprays.
• Today’s common chemical sunscreens are of molecular size cable of penetrating
beyond the skin’s stratum corneum and possibly into the bloodstream.
• The Environmental Working Group recommends the use of nano-sized mineral
sunscreens over chemical sunscreens.
Zinc Oxide, a physical sun screen,
yesterday and today
• A water soluble from of melanin that can be
formulated into a product as a free-radical
scavenger. Melanin can be naturally extracted
from cuttlefish ink or synthetically produced.
• Research indicates that when employed as a
sunscreen, melanin provides better UVA
protection and requires lower usage
concentrations that other available sunscreens.
• It’s safety is supported through studies
conducted with radioactive melanin, which
showed no penetration through human skin.
About Melanin in skincare products
• Over 350 Articles found on Medline
• Potential uses include:
– Anti-Melanoma Therapy
• Melanin’s biological functions include:
– Photoreceptor shielding
• Sanitas Skincare is a company that believes true cosmetic beauty
comes from overall wellbeing-which is fitting considering that
Sanitas is Latin for 'good health.’
• Their philosophy is that each ingredient should work in harmony
with the body's own biochemistry rather than fight against it. That
is why they employ biogenic ingredients that are found naturally in
our bodies-because our skin, when properly nourished, is able to
heal and regenerate itself naturally.
• By avoiding waxes, emulsifying agents and other synthetic fillers,
Sanitas carefully formulates all of their products to utilize only a few
active ingredients to help nourish and stimulate skin to bring it back
to its normal, healthy state.
