Maximum Strength Salicylic Acid Spot Treatment
This is our version of a very popular, long-time favourite drying lotion in the market.
It has the same active ingredients (minus a skin irritant and colorant) and will behave very similarly in drying out existing or impending pesky zits or pimples.
It is fast acting with anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and sebum-reducing properties.
This formula contains maximum strength* salicylic acid to reduce the severity of papules and pustules (ie zits or pimples). Zinc oxide calms and provides anti-irritation. Tapioca starch mattifies and soothes. The alcohol used is cosmetic grade denatured alcohol. The drying effects of alcohol should not be of big concern as it is only to be used as a spot treatment when necessary. It also acts as an astringent with anti-bacterial properties and is present in a much lower dosage than similar drying spot treatments in the market. Glycerin prevents any potential over-drying effects.
You will get a PDF of the formula as well as instructions on how to make the product and any alternatives to ingredients where applicable.
