Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), a type of carbon-based organic compound that naturally occurs in willow bark, fruits, and vegetables. BHAs are lipid/fat soluble and can penetrate into pores to unclog blackheads. Not only does salicylic acid fight bacteria, but it also reduces inflammation and exfoliates the skin. It is an excellent pore-clearing ingredient because it exfoliates the surface of the skin and penetrates into pores to remove oil. This helps to prevent pores from becoming clogged and can help remove clogs that have already formed. As an oil soluble BHA, salicylic acid has the ability to advance deep into your skin and break up the excess oil and dead skin cells. It works successfully by breaking down the “glue” between the cells in the pores and decrease oil secretion. At higher concentrations. It is used to treat warts and other skin growths as it breaks down skin cells. It is a great ingredient for people with oily, and acne-prone skin.

SP Esty Notes:
This blemish treatment product is ideal for anyone that wants to get their breakouts under control, improve the appearance of pores, and reduce oil residue and production. This product was created for a lower price point blemish treatment product that can extend the results of a salicylic peel they would have in the spa. The ingredients are clean and simple, so it is beneficial for those that have sensitivities to glycolic acid. Also, darker skin tones seem to do with salicylic acid straight without other actives as a spot/area treatment.
