How Does Salicylic Acid Work?

Salicylic acid is such an amazing ingredient and quite unique in how it works. Salicylic acid is oil soluble, which means that when applied it works within the pore, with regular use the dirt, dead skin, bacteria and oil causing the blockage will reduce, the pore will reduce in size and the oil that was once blocked will be able to flow through the pore, this is important as our skin's natural oil (sebum) keeps our skin nourished, healthy and supple.

Salicylic acid is suitable for oily skin with complaints such as acne, breakouts, whiteheads, blackheads, blocked pores and redness/inflammation (as long as the skin isn't broken or irritated).

Salicylic acid isn't suitable for everyone, because of it's oil soluble properties it can be too irritating for dry or sensitive skin, meaning it should be used less or avoided completely. Because of it's anti-inflammatory properties, it can help with mild cases of rosacea.

Salicylic acid should be used at a maximum strength of 2% when used at home, our simple 2% solution is easy to use, gives great results and is only £9.59.
