  • Ingredients

    What are the key ingredients?

    Salicylic Acid/BHA
    Primarily an exfoliant, helping shed dead skin on the surface and inside the pore, therefore effective for reducing breakouts and blackheads. It also has soothing properties.

    Lauric acid
    A fatty acid obtained from coconut oil and other natural fats. Has calming benefits for the skin.

    Zinc Oxide
    Mineral sunscreen, effective in providing protection against sun’s UVA rays in addition to UVB rays. Very gentle and therefore suitable for sensitive skin.

  • Faq

    Good to know before you start:

    It is best to gradually build up use of a BHA product, starting to use it a couple of times a week only. If there is no adverse reaction, this may be increased to every other day at night and then, if you wish, every night. Some people increase use to twice daily (morning and night), but it really all depends on the condition of your skin. You need to experiment a bit to see what suits you best. During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.

    Allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate)? Do not use this product as it contains salicylic acid (BHA).
