Purifying Face Mask (2% Salicylic Acid)

Purifying Face Mask (2% Salicylic Acid)

Lemon Myrtle, Patchouli & Black Pepper

2% Salicylic Acid + Rosemary Extract

 

Salicylic Acid is a powerful blackhead-fighting ingredient that collaborates with Activated Charcoal to pull impurities from the pores and simultaneously soften the skin.

 

From https://INCIdecoder.com/ingredients/salicylic-acid:

If you have ever struggled with let’s just call it “problem skin” (you know, acne, blackheads, whiteheads, large pores) then most probably you are familiar with salicylic acid (SA). Even if the name does not ring a bell, you have probably used it. Next to benzoyl peroxide, it’s the gold standard ingredient for treating problem skin

SA is lipid soluble and it can go right into the pores and shed the stuck, dead skin cells from there. That’s really good for treating blackheads as well as preventing acne formation. The chemical structure of SA is very similar to aspirin, and it does have a similar anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory effect. That is helpful both for acne and rosacea.  

For at-home use 0.5-2% SA is effective and these products are usually gentle enough for daily use. Oh, and one more thing: studies show that SA (at 2%) does not increase skin’s sun sensitivity, but it has photoprotective effects. Not that we want to tell you not to use sunscreen; because please do!

Bottom line: SA is a great exfoliant and anti-inflammatory and you should definitely try it if you have oily skin, large pores, blackheads or whiteheads.
