1-Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid, this is a chemical compound similar to aspirin that has been used for many years to effectively treat large areas of inflammation. Salicylic Acid is a lipid (oil) soluble molecule which has the ability to penetrate pores filled with sebum, normalizing the lining of the misshapen pores that contribute to acne.

 

2- Lactic Acid?
Lactic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, AHAs are water soluble making them more suitable for thickened and sun-damaged skin. Lactic Acid works by breaking down the ‘glue’ that hold dead skin cells together, exfoliating them away and leaving you with refreshed, glowing skin. Lactic acid is beneficial for sensitive and dry skin due to its ability to increase ceramides (barrier function) and reduce Trans-Epidermal water loss.
Lactic acid swell’s the skin cells with hyaluronic acid helping with all over hydration. Lactic Acid also directly inhibits melanin formation, creating a formidable tool for lightening skin discoloration.

3-Resorcinol?
Resorcinol works by breaking down rough, scaly, or hardened skin. Resorcinol also disinfects the skin to help fight infection. Resorcinol has as an antibacterial, whitening effect.
