Offering powerful, concentrated treatment - at a surprisingly tiny price - The Ordinary's Salicylic Acid 2% Solution is ideal for oily, congested skin. Supercharged with salicylic acid, the pH-balanced formula penetrates the interior walls of pores to unclog and eliminate blemish-causing impurities and balance excess sebum production. The welcome addition of witch hazel helps to reduce redness and alleviate discomfort, leaving your complexion clearer and calmer, with a more even and refined texture.
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. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.)
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. Effective medicine exists to fight acne successfully, including retinoic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
