Colour may vary form batch to batch, or change overtime due to light exposure, however it won't affect performance of this product. 


Benefits: We have combined 1.5% Salicylic acid with 5% Gluconolactone to create a medium strength  exfoliant to help address blemishes, blackheads (aka open comedones), excessive oil production, inflammation, pigmentation and rough skin texture.


Salicylic acid is an oil soluble acid and comedolytic agent, meaning it literally breaks down comedones - perfect for supreme exfoliation. It dissolves and clears excess sebum out of hair follicles unlike any other acids out there. Inside the pores, it helps loosen clogs and allows oil to flow out easier. It is both a preventative and corrective treatment for congestion, blemishes, blackheads.  Salicylic acid is also a powerful pigmentation fighter - not just because of its exfoliating effect but also from its ability to inhibit melanin formation with low risk of irritation.



Suitable for:  This powerful duo of acids is especially beneficial for oily, pigmented and congested skin. A patch test is recommended for ultra-sensitive skin. Not recommended to use on rosacea. If unsure whether you have rosacea best to get an advice from a dermatologist

This is NOT a pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly product



Directions: Apply with a cotton pad avoiding lip and eye area. To avoid over-exfoliation, use only twice a week, always at night. Do not use in the same routine with retinoids. Use a broad spectrum SPF protection in the day. For external use only. If you have broken or swollen skin you should probably avoid acids altogether. Do not use if allergic to aspirin or if pregnant or breastfeeding. Always perform a patch test on your neck before a full face application.

Many people change their routine too quickly without giving products the time they need to work. To see the benefits from comedolytic products (that include retinoids) it can take up to 8-12 weeks. It's a marathon not a race.


NOTE: If you have tried skincare products or over the counter products for several weeks but your skin isn't getting any better, or your spots are becoming much worse and affecting other additional body areas, or starting to scar and affecting your mental health it is actually important to seek medical help and book an appointment with your GP or dermatologist for prescription strength products.
