2% Salicylic Acid + 1% Zinc
Spots and blemishes can appear on all skin types due to the presence of bacteria in the sebaceous glands. Typology use high concentrations of salicylic acid – a powerful anti-bacterial agent – to correct this concern.
- Salicylic Acid (2%): Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA). Its keratolytic (peeling) and exfoliating effects help promote desquamation – the elimination of dead skin. This makes it ideal for oily skin, acne-prone skin, skin with imperfections, as well as smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic acid is also known to limit the development of harmful microorganisms, making it an effective ingredient for cleaning and purifying the surface layers of the skin. It also helps prevent the appearance of blackheads and the clogging of pores.
- Zinc (1%): Derived from beetroot, zinc is ideal for oily skin and significantly reduces sebum (oil) secretion. Coupled with L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid, zinc promotes cell differentiation and strengthens the skin's barrier function to protect from future flare-ups. A trace element naturally present in the body, zinc is an essential part of many of the body's enzymatic mechanisms from the metabolism of food, supporting our natural defences and the renewal of tissues. Finally, zinc is also known to limit the development of microorganisms that cause many skin imbalances.
