The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution exfoliates skin and penetrates into pores to clarify and decongest for fewer blackheads and breakouts.
Why you need it:
The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution is a water-free product formulated to effectively decongest the skin, and impart a superficial exfoliating effect. This will result in a visible reduction of apparent pore size and textural irregularities, with improved skin tone homogeneity and clarity over time. It exfoliates the surface of skin, clearing away dead skin cells, and penetrates into the inside walls of pores to clear excess oils that can lead to clogging. It helps to reduce the appearance of blemishes and clarifies skin with continued use over time. Salicylic Acid also has anti-inflammatory properties, so helps to tone down redness and inflammation of acne. It can even help to regulate sebum production so skin becomes more balanced over time.
Always use a daytime SPF when using products with BHAs like Salicylic Acid.
Not recommended for anyone allergic to aspirin.
All skin types, especially Oily or Combination.
Water-free, Sulphate-free, Alcohol-free, Oil-free, Silicone-free, Nut-free, Gluten-free, Vegan, Cruelty-Free
