THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS

Salicylic  Acid

Salicylic acid (also called beta hydroxy acid or BHA) is a desmolytic ingredient, meaning it's able to exfoliate by dissolving the bonds that hold dead cells to the skin's surface. It's an oil soluble ingredient, and therefore has the ability to penetrate into the pore lining and exfoliate inside the pore.
