Salicylic Acid Moisturisers
- Absorbs other products. When used in combination with other treatments, salicylic acid enhances the absorption of active ingredients into the skin.
- Clears pores. This mild acid breaks down blackheads and whiteheads by peeling the top layer of skin and clearing blocked pores.
- Exfoliates and cleanses. Salicylic acid is a keratolytic agent, which means that it has both exfoliating and antiseptic properties. It also assists in shedding dead skin cells that can cause acne when mixed with dirt and sebum.
- Combats dryness. Salicylic acid softens keratin, a skin-forming protein and helps break down dry skin.
