    Key Ingredients

    Salicylic Acid 2%

    This multifunctional ingredient addresses many of the systemic causes of acne. For decades dermatologists have been prescribing salicylic acid as a gentle exfoliant and anti-inflammatory. Salicylic acid’s antimicrobial properties make it extremely effective at treating breakouts. It has the ability to penetrate into the pore lining and exfoliate inside the pore as well as on the surface of skin, which makes it effective for reducing breakouts, including blackheads and whiteheads. It is also well documented salicylic acid can improve skin thickness, barrier function, and collagen production.


    Chamomile has a soothing effect on the skin and its anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce redness in acne prone skin. Chamomile has excellent healing abilities and can block irritants to reduce skin damage and slow the skin’s aging process.

    Excellent Acne and Dandruff Treatment

    I had my doubts whether Salicylic Acid 2% Serum would actually make any difference to my skin, but it did! It reduced the oil on my skin, and there's such an improvement I can't even say I have issues with my t-zone any longer. I used it on my face and neck for three weeks and took a week's break before adding it back to my morning routine.

    I then started using it on my scalp, and the oil production and dandruff issues I am having is slowly going away. I've used it on my scalp (mostly my hairline and front of my hair), and it is helping to such a degree that I now wash my hair once or twice a week instead of daily as I used to.

    The absolute best for pimples
