2% Salicylic Acid intensely exfoliates and controls excess oil in the pores. It is a potent ingredient to treat existing pimples and acne and prevent further breakouts. The anti-inflammatory and oil-soluble properties of Salicylic Acid allow it to penetrate deep within the pores to unclog them. It clears out the pores by detaching the dead skin cells & other debris from within the pores, making the skin clearer over time. Free from mineral oil, dye, parabens, and sulfates, this serum for pigmentation and dark spots is a safe & effective formulation that offers a visible difference in 3-6 weeks. Suitable for all skin types, this serum is for anyone seeking a solution for active acne and clogged pores.
