Salicylic Acid Peel

A Salicylic Acid Peel is an antiseptic exfoliant that deeply cleanses pores. It provides excellent treatment for acne and aids in overall skin rejuvenation. Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid (BHA), is a highly effective peeling agent and is one of the most effective ingredients to battle oily skin. Although it is ideal for oily/acneic skin, clogged pores and seborrheic dermatitis, it is also beneficial for dehydrated/dry and sensitive skin, sun damaged, dull and uneven skin.

Active Ingredients:


  • Salicylic Acid – keratolytic BHA that smoothes skin and improves texture with anti-acne and anti-irritant properties
  • Totarol – a natural anti-oxidant botanical with antibacterial and anti-microbal properties
  • Cranberry Extract – antioxidant with anti-bacterial properties
  • BioAstin (Astaxanthin) – powerful carotenoid antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that is derived from a Hawaiian microalgae

How Salicylic Acid Peels work

Salicylic acid acts as a peeling agent dissolving the upper most top layer of the epidermis and resurfacing the skin, resulting in a smoother and healthier complexion.
