What do Enzymes do?

What are Enzymes? And what do they do? These questions are thrown around quite a lot in the beauty world, especially here at Eden Spa!

Enzymes work by helping to speed up the chemical reactions in our bodies. They bind to molecules and alter them in specific ways. They are essential for respiration, digesting food, muscle and nerve function, among thousands of other roles, like breaking down toxins!

The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead skin cells, containing keratin protein. Enzymes work by specifically breaking down the keratin protein, resulting in smoother skin.


  • Smoother skin texture
  • Removal of dead skin cells
  • Enhances skin radiance
  • Brightens the skins complexion

Here at Eden Spa, we have the choice in all of our facials to incorporate an Enzyme Exfoliant. 

Our Organic Rituals Enzyme Buff works by breaking down protein to help remove dead skill cells from the surface of the skin, for a smoother and brighter complexion. ⁠

Containing natural ingredients like pineapple, Kaolin Clay, Coconut Milk Powder & Oats. ⁠Our Enzyme buff is a great exfoliant that is applied to the skin for 5 to 10 minutes and is most effective when applied under the steam.⁠
