Black willow bark extract – a natural form of salicylic acid
- Exfoliates corneocytes without irritation, helping repair acne and photodamage through anti-inflammation.
- Dissolves sebum in sebaceous glands, removing blockages and comedones.
- Has smoother penetrating action than synthetic salicylic acid.
- Helps regulate sebum production and stabilize skin lipids by impeding lipid oxidation and photodegradation that can cause comedone formation.
- Reduces overpopulation of bacteria.
- Reduces redness and inflammation.
- Helps correct hyperkeratinization.
- Is a highly effective broad-spectrum antioxidant.
Synergistic salicylic acid 2% (medicinal ingredient) and bakuchiol 1% combination
In a clinical study on papulopustular-type acne vulgaris (ages 16 to 30), twice-daily applications with salicylic acid and bakuchiol showed a significantly more powerful antibacterial effect than when using each ingredient independently.
- This combination helps unclog pores, reduce erythema, inflammation and pruritis, and prevent congestion and breakouts. Helps keep skin clear.
- Helps to correct hyperkeratinization and reduction in microcomedones (after two, four and six weeks).
