Salicylic Acid

I’m an exfoliant that helps shrink spots, keep skin fresh, and block future breakouts.

Technical Term
Salicylic Acid
Ingredient Class
Hero Ingredients

Essential actives ingredient in some products

I help to heal spots, keep pores clear, and prevent future breakouts.

How I'm made

I'm a trusty synthetic ingredient: I’m made in a lab to be the best at what I do while staying safe for your skin.

How I work

Not to brag, but I’m a pretty well-known, spot-fighting skincare superhero: I help to exfoliate skin and dissolve sebum and oils on the skin. Less oils on the skin make it harder for acne causing bacteria to grow, which equals less blackheads and whiteheads. My anti-inflammatory, redness-reducing powers make me especially good at shrinking and healing pimples, too. I am also used in some products as a safe preservative.
