Shop BHAs/Salicylic Acid


Worried about acne? Get yourself some salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is a powerhouse skincare ingredient and the most common form of BHA (or beta hydroxy acid) available. Beta hydroxy acids are so great at treating acne and breakouts because they work inside the pores, where all breakouts begin. They are also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which is also key for treating breakouts.

How does cosmeceutical salicylic acid work?

BHAs are attracted to oils which make them able to target the oil-producing glands within the skin. They are therefore able to help unclog pores by dissolving debris and clearing oil.

Benefits of BHAs/salicylic acid:

BHAs are known to work deeper into the pore compared to other exfoliating ingredients, and can help unclog and decongest over time. Once unclogged, pores will become visibly smaller. Salicylic acid’s ability to exfoliate skin at the surface level also helps to refine the appearance of the skin. The surface exfoliation of this BHA fades discolorations to reveal an even and more radiant complexion.


Salicylic acid can help:

  • brighten skin
  • unclog pores
  • heal and prevent acne &
  • balance your skin’s oil production

 

Who should use cosmeceutical salicylic acid/BHAs?

Salicylic acid is best used on skin that is oily and acne-prone. But there are also milder salicylic acid formulations that are more suited to all skin types.

 

Please note: for those who are creating their own professional grade skincare routine at home, it is best to avoid layering multiple forms of BHAs. This is because while your skin may be able to handle something like a 10% AHA serum, if you're also using an AHA, BHA or retinol moisturiser you may run the risk of sensitising your skin.
