Squalane is also an antioxidant, prevents UV damage and the formation of age spots, promotes cell growth and is an antibacterial.
Salicylic Acid - One of the few scientifically backed up ingredients that help with blemishes. Salicylic acid is considered a keratolytic medication, which means that it's perfect for supreme exfoliation. It also can reduce sebum secretion, which is another way it can help reduce acne. Lastly, it's also an anti-inflammatory, which can help calm inflamed, red skin.
