"...Awesome stuff!!!This is such a wonderful product and worth it for the price because you don't use very much on a daily (if used daily) basis.

I put a drop with my rose water every day and it keeps my skin clear and fresh looking. I've really seen a better appearance in my skin (blackheads less visible) from using this skin shot regularly."



Salicylic – derived from acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA). It is oil (lipid) soluble – which AHA are not.  This allows the BHA to penetrate oily pores and help to exfoliate the pore itself. It breaks down the ‘glue’ that causes breakouts and oily, uneven skins. It helps the cell to let go of the excess sebum that oily skins like to hold on to.

Like AHAs, beta hydroxy acid (BHA) also acts as an exfoliant increasing the shedding of dead skin cells. BHA is extremely useful for treating breakouts and helps manage keratosis pilaris and other conditions that involve blocked or clogged pores.


Softens the contents of clogged pores: The oil-soluble ingredient is able to penetrate the pores, loosen the "glue" that causes the skin cells to stick together, and remove the contents of clogged pores that lead to superficial acne, like whiteheads, blackheads, and small red pimples.

Removes excess oil: Salicylic acid is oil-soluble, it can penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to clean out excess sebum from the pores and reduce oiliness. This can, in turn, also lead to an improvement in the appearance of pores.

Prevents whiteheads and blackheads: Not only does salicylic acid treat existing breakouts, because salicylic acid targets whiteheads and blackheads directly, it prevents them from returning to the surface level of your skin.

Combats acne: Because it is lipophilic, salicylic acid can penetrate deep into pores to prevent acne from forming in the future.

Minimizes pores: As an astringent product, salicylic acid can tighten the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of pores.

Reduces inflammation: Salicylic acid belongs to the same class of drugs as aspirin (salicylates). Because of salicylic acid's anti-inflammatory properties, it helps to address irritation and redness related to breakouts.

Its also a great ingredient to help combat Fungal Acne !
