What is Cool-Action?
To make this peel more comfortable, we added in a bit of menthol to minimize the 'burning effect' that many people feel while performing peels. This ingenious action allows for a more comfortable peel. You will find it in several of our peel formulas.
Do not use a salicylic peel if you are pregnant. It is in the aspirin family.
Oily skin is prone to blackheads, breakouts, and large pores - especially in the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin areas). Salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid is a highly effective superficial peeling agent and pore cleanser. It loosens and removes aging cells, oil and debris attached to the skin's surface. Stimulates new cell production and increased collagen formation. Is oil soluble and lipophilic, thus it is able to penetrate sebum filled follicles and clean out clogged pores, resulting in marked improvement in acne prone skin.

This series of peels (3%-25% Salicylic) is buffered to a pH of 2.1. The Higher pH level slows down the action of the peel and makes it safer for home usage. Salicylic is a very strong acid though, and even though the pH level is altered, salicylic should be treated as a stronger peel. We suggest this series for acne prone types (3% beginners/TEENS - 15% and 25% advanced).
