Why is this different?

Salicylic acid, an oil soluble exfoliating acid goes deep into the pores and helps clear comedones, while Niacinamide controls oil and sebum production. These ingredients work in collaboration to keep oil, comedones and blackheads in check. This can be easily incorporated into any routine, including sensitive acne prone skin that cannot tolerate leave- on active products.

How Does it Work on the Skin?

  • 0.5% Salicylic acid is a lipophilic acid that can easily penetrate through the skin and unclog the pores. This helps to control oil, clear pores off dirt & dead cells and exfoliate the top layer of the skin revealing softer, more even skin.
  • 1% Niacinamide improves skin’s texture, controls oils, restores skin barrier, and also moisturizes skin. 

How to use?

  • Dampen your face.
  • Take a small amount of salicylic acid face wash, and massage onto your skin for 30-60 seconds.
  • Rinse with water and pat dry. 
  • Use daily, morning and evening.
