Salicylic Acid

581 results

Salicylic acid is legendary for its ability to minimize complexion concerns like acne, psoriasis, keratosis pilaris and rosacea while addressing common concerns like enlarged pores, oiliness and blackheads without drying out your skin. A beta hydroxy acid (BHA) derived from willowbark, salicylic acid works its magic by increasing the cellular turnover rate. This leads to faster skin renewal and fewer clogged pores, which is the primary cause of breakouts, irritations and skin condition flare-ups.

Salicylic acid is often preferred over alpha hydroxy acids by those with more sensitive skin due to the fact that it is less irritating while still being effective in sloughing off dead skin cells. However, doctors strongly recommended using sun protection when using products with salicylic acid as it will increase sensitivity for all skin types. If you're seeking a facial treatment, cleanser, moisturizer or serum or a breakout-busting body cleanser, Dermstore offers a variety of dermatologist-backed skin care options featuring salicylic acid and other BHAs. Shop our collection by your specific skin concerns, such as aging skin, rosacea or enlarged pores, to find the right solution for you.
