Salicylic Acid is a beta-hydroxyl acid (BHA) which penetrates into skin and works to dissolve dead skin cells which clog your pores. This miracle acid helps to effectively exfoliate dull, dead skin cells and ensures they are cleared to reveal fresh, new skin. With the dead skin cells removed other products, such as moisturisers or serums, can be absorbed more efficiently as well. Salicylic Acid is commonly used in acne treatments or for more oily skin types as its exfoliating qualities clear trapped dirt, oil and excess sebum. Overtime it works to keep excess oil, grime and dead skin cells at bay, and its natural antibacterial hygiene properties ensure bacteria germs aren’t trapped beneath the skin’s surface.
