A beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that helps exfoliate the skin’s dead cells for smoother skin texture, and helps fight the appearance of blemishes. It’s a great anti-inflammatory agent that can reduce swelling and redness in the skin. As an oil-soluble BHA, salicylic acid can dissolve oil that might otherwise create congestion in the pores. It works best when given some time to penetrate the skin, so it is a good leave on treatment.
Our formulations containing salicylic acid may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun so we recommend always using sunscreen.
