A deep pore cleansing and exfoliating treatment can work wonders.
For oily, problematic skin, this is a necessary step towards balancing sebum levels. Using an oil-soluble active significantly improves exfoliation, a pivotal step in helping problematic skin. This BHA Leave-On Exfoliating Lotion is a special oil-free, water-based, gel moisturizer that takes advantage of the oil-soluble properties of Salicylic Acid, providing an exceptional deep cleaning and skin exfoliating experience. Salicylic Acid is a chemical exfoliating agent and powerful Beta Hydroxy Acid that dislodges dead and damaged skin cells. It also lifts excess oil from clogged and infected skin pores. Formulated in a soothing, moisturizing, and protective Seaweed Extract, this incredible ingredient provides hydrating, conditioning, and smoothing benefits to equalize the exfoliation process. This engaging lotion can be left on the skin to work its wonders all day long to reduce sebum and keep pores clean.

HOW IT WORKS
Beta Hydroxy Acids are organic compounds with a molecular structure that contributes to its chemical exfoliation strength. Its oil-soluble property creates a natural affinity with human skin oils (sebum), allowing for better assimilation into clogged and excessively oily skin pores. Salicylic Acid is a biosynthesized Beta Hydroxy Acid that opens clogged pores, preventing pores from clogging up again. Usually, exfoliating agents can leave the skin dry, exposed and sensitive, so we have added a nourishing Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract to the lotion. Derived from Red Sea Algae, its elemental composition provides wholesome moisturizing and protective qualities. This natural ingredient delivers restorative moisturization to the skin. It also improves the natural skin barrier to lock in moisture and help protect the skin from environmental exposure.
Formulated as a comfortable and blanketing lotion, this BHA leave-on can be applied and left on the skin all day long to improve pore penetration and degree of exfoliation. A quick and easy application lets the Beta Hydroxy Acid work its oil neutralizing benefits while the seaweed extract restores hydration and improves the protective layer. This results in a more balanced complexion and revitalized, skin-clearing process.
