Get Clear Skin with Ingredients that Work!

There’s a lot of buzz about skin treatments and products containing ingredients like Salicylic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Retinoids, but can they really help us achieve and maintain clear skin?

We take a closer look at these ingredients and see what all the fuss is about.


Salicylic Acid

What is it?

Salicylic Acid is first and foremost an exfoliant that comes from botanical willow bark. It is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid), meaning that it works inside the pore, rather than on the surface of the skin.

How does it work?

Salicylic Acid clears blocked pores and helps remove excess dead skin cells. It also has anti-inflammatory properties.


Glycolic Acid

What is it?

Glycolic acid is another exfoliant, and is derived from sugar cane. It is an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), and works by peeling away layers of dead, rough, and uneven skin.

How does it work?

Glycolic Acid breaks down the top layer of skin, so the dead skin cells are sloughed off. This reveals smoother, younger looking, and more radiant skin.



What are they?

Retinoids are a class of ingredients derived from Vitamin A. They are regularly used topically to treat acne, ageing skin, and hyper-pigmentation.

How do they work?

Retinoids work by normalising cell turnover, so that your dead skin cells don’t bind together and clog pores. Without clogged oil ducts, the pores will not become plugged, and acne should not occur.


So.. there’s a reason for the hype and buzz about these ingredients. They are skin essentials that you absolutely need to have on your bathroom shelf. When choosing your products next time, take a closer look at the ingredients, and give your skin a kickstart to looking clear, rejuvenated, and bright.
