FAQ's Salicylic Acid Cleanser

CAN I USE SALICYLIC ACID CLEANSER ON MY BODY? 

You can absolutely use this cleanser on parts of your body with breakouts, such as arms, chest, back. 


CAN I USE THIS CLEANSER IN MY DOUBLE CLEANSE ROUTINE? 

We recommend using our Oat Cleansing Balm as a first step in double cleansing and Salicylic Acid after. 


CAN I USE EXFOLIATING ACIDS / RETINOLS / VITAMIN C AFTER USING SALICYLIC ACID CLEANSER? 

You can layer your usual skincare routine after washing your face with Salicylic Acid Cleanser. It is a very gentle, yet effective cleanser that stays on your skin for a short amount of time and then gets completely washed off with water. Thanks to this you can safely layer other active ingredients. 


CAN I USE SALICYLIC ACID CLEANSER IF MY SKIN IS NOT OILY BUT IS STILL BLEMISH PRONE? 

You can use this cleanser if your skin is not oily but you're experiencing breakouts or your skin is blemish prone. We would recommend to use Salicylic Acid Cleanser 2-3 times per week to gently exfoliate and declog your pores and alternate it with our other cleansers.


IS THIS CLEANSER ENOUGH OR DO I NEED TO FOLLOW UP WITH A SEPARATE CLEANSER?

The cleanser is perfectly fine on its own so it does not need a follow up however you can also pair this with another cleanser for a double cleanse. 


IS IT OKAY TO BE USED DAILY AM ad PM?

Yes! it is perfectly fine for daily use AM and PM or at a frequency you prefer 


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Products using retinol can take up to six weeks to show results. This is how long it takes for your skin cells to turnover. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don\'t overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.


IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?

Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.

PH LEVEL: 4.5-5.0

It is working!

This product really seems to be working. It has improved the condition of my adult acne. Since I started using this, I stopped breaking out on my cheeks and forehead as much. Probably will buy again after I finish my first bottle.

Excellent cleaner for my mixt acneic skin.

I love this cleanser! Strong enough for a nice ultra clean feeling and acne control, but delicate enough to avoid the common dryness after anti-acne product use.

Unfortunately, this cleanser made me even more oily than I am already . Not what I expect a salicylic acid cleanser to do .

Hey Josee! Thank you for your feedback! With Salicylic, it removes any excess oils. However, you need to keep your hydrated to ensure your skin isn't actually producing excess oils because it is dry. Try following with a hydrating moisturiser, and maybe even an oil such as Squalane, to help provide hydration but also balance out those excess oils 🖤

Clean & Soft

I’m loving this cleanser. I use it at night and it leaves my skin feeling so clean and soft. I don’t feel dry and tight after, which is fantastic. A little goes a long way.
