This listing is for 25ml of pure BHA Salicylic Acid 5% Skin Peel.
I am an industrial formulation chemist by trade and have derived a pure grade of 5% Salicylic Acid which uses pharmaceutical grade salicylic acid and pure pharmaceutical grade isopropanol as the only ingredients. There are no chemical preservatives or additives.
Salicylic Acid is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy acid) found naturally deep in the heart of Willow Bark and Sweet Birch trees. It is a highly effective skin peeling agent and an excellent pore cleanser with anti-wrinkle and anti-acne properties. It works by gently removing old cells from the skin allowing it to be replaced with healthy skin;
boosts collagen production and in turn balances oil production (less acne and blemishes)
lessens the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Salicylic Acid also has an anti-inflammatory effect. This acid is able to penetrate the oily material blocking pores and flush it out. A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solutionthat causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. Unlike Glycolic and Lactic Acids which are gradual peels, using a Salicylic peel may cause visible peeling that can last up to 3 days. Please note that Salicylic Acid Peels are not recommended for use during pregnancy or lactation. SalicylicAcid is used for the following conditions:
Acne, Acne Scars, Blackheads/Whiteheads, Dry Skin, Sun-damaged Skin, Blotchy Pigmentation, Fine Wrinkles, Loss of Elasticity,Large Pores, Bumps, Rosacea, Age Spots/Dark Spots, Seborrheic Keratosis, Hyperkeratosis, and Actinic keratosis.
5% Salicylic Acid is a Medium Peel. It is effective in combating excess oil output and cleansing of pores. First time users should begin with the milder 5% Salicylic Acid Peel.
Directions for use
Initially perform a spot skin test before applying the Salicylic acid to the full area. Spot test on the inside of the wrist: Using a cotton pad apply soaked with the Salicylic acid solution apply to the inside of the wrist in a circular motion.
