How does the acne body wash work?

What are the key ingredients in the acne body wash?

Our key ingredient is salicylic acid (aka BHA, or beta hydroxy acid), which is great at dislodging the dead skin cells that accumulate in your pores, encouraging exfoliation and preventing the buildup of sebum and debris that can trigger acne breakouts. Our perfectly calibrated 2% formula does the job without tending to irritate healthy skin. Another benefit of salicylic acid is that it also helps decrease inflammation!
