Salicylic Acid belongs to the Beat-Hydroxy Acid (BHAs) group and in a oil-soluble ingredient so it is able to penetrate through the lipid barrier of your skin, giving a deeper exfoliation as compared to the AHA group of acids. It works by dissolving the bonds of skin debris that clogs pores and causes breakouts. Due to its effectiveness as an exfoliator, it not only is a great acne busting ingredient, but it also transforms skin from dull and tired, to bright and glowing.
