Neostrata Salicylic Gel Plus 15% AHA for Acne-Prone Skin…
Neostrata Salicylic Gel Plus 15% AHA is a cell renewing gel with a high concentration of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA). This light-textured gel was developed for oily, acne-prone skin. However, due to the high concentration of AHAs, it is indicated for skins experienced in the use of formulations with acids.
With a gel texture, it is particularly interesting to treat areas with a large extent of acne imperfections, such as the back, and chest! However, it can also be applied to the face, especially in the beard area!
Clarify Salicylic Gel Plus combines 2% Salicylic Acid with 15% Glycolic Acid. The presence of the first, Salicylic Acid, allows a smoothing of the rough texture of the skin, often characteristic of oily skin. It, therefore, has a keratolytic action. Thus, it offers uniformity of skin texture and tone, presenting a huge advantage in the treatment of acne marks and blemishes.
On the other hand, Glycolic Acid is an ingredient responsible for normalizing the skin’s renewal process. Aims to refine the complexion’s appearance and pore size, while retexturizing the skin.
Clarify Salicylic Gel Plus, despite the high concentration of AHA’s, can be used on oily skin, in hot and humid climates. As well as on the face and body.
Finally, it should be noted that thanks to its peeling effect, this gel has the ability to prevent ingrown hairs either on the chest or on the face, especially in thicker beards (pseudofolliculitis, folliculitis, and pillar keratoses).
How to use Neostrata Salicylic Gel Plus 15% AHA for Acne-Prone Skin?
Suitable for oily skin prone to acne. Clarify Salicylic Gel Plus, given its high concentration of AHAs, is especially recommended for skin that is not sensitive to Glycolic Acid.
