Benefits: We have combined 1.5% Salicylic acid with 5% Gluconolactone to create a medium strength exfoliant to help address blemishes, blackheads, excessive oil production, inflammation, pigmentation and rough skin texture. Salicylic acid is an oil soluble acid - 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 more easily. It is both a preventative and corrective treatment for congestion, blemishes, black and white heads. It is probably the best acne fighting topical ingredient. Lastly, it's 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. 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 have in mind that salicylic acid based products are quite drying, so always use a moisturiser after applicaton. Do not use if allergic to aspirin or if pregnant or breastfeeding. Always perform a patch test on your neck before full face application.
