Benefits: We have combined 1.5 % pure willow bark extract with 5% Gluconolactone to create a gentle exfoliating product to help address blemishes, blackheads (open comedones), excessive oil production, inflammation, pigmentation and rough skin texture. Salicylic acid could be both preventative and corrective treatment for congestion, blemishes and blackheads.
Gluconolactone is an antioxidant (free radical scavenger) polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that has the ability to deliver superior hydration as well as gentle exfoliation without sun sensitivity.
Suitable for: This powerful duo is especially beneficial for pigmented and congested skin.
Directions: Apply with a cotton pad avoiding lip and eye area. To avoid over-exfoliation, use up to three times a week, day or night. 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.
This is NOT a pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly product.
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 important to seek medical help and book an appointment with your GP or dermatologist for prescription strength products.
