Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution helps exfoliate the inside walls of pores to fight the appearance of blemishes and for better visible skin clarity with continued use.
Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions.
Note: This product is not medicine. If you are fighting extensive or persistent acne, please consult a physician.
While exfoliating acids can result in quick visible benefits, The Ordinary generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD Non-Acid Acid Precursor.
Size: 30 ml
Use in the morning and evening. Apply a small dot directly on spots for visible improvement or apply a small amount over the face to maintain visible clarity with continued use. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes. Do not rinse off.
Continue with additional skin treatments as needed. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician.
