Salicylic acid is oil soluble, thus making this acid perfect for oily/acne skin that needs deep pore cleansing and loosening of blackheads.
- Cleans pores
- Removes oily residue from skin
- Helps to clear acne and loosen blackheads
- Because salicylic acid is in the aspirin-family, it's important for clients who are allergic to aspirin to avoid salicylic acid usage.
- If you are pregnant, consult with your OB/GYN before using chemically-based products.
- Always patch-test the skin before using acid-based products. Wait 24-48 hours to see if irritation develops.
- If you experience irritation, rinse-off immediately and discontinue use.
Do not apply to red, irritated skin.
Do not use granular exfoliators, scrubbing pads, nor scrubbing brushes on the day of your peel.
Discontinue other acids, acne products, benzoyl peroxides, drying skin care, and retinoids for 24 hours before the peel and the day *of* the peel.
Chemical peels cause the skin to be photo-sensitive. Per the FDA, always use sunscreen protection after using chemically-based skin care.

FDA December 2, 2002 Posting - Sun Sensitivity
Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal. It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products. The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel.
