(2% Salicylic Acid)
Why is Femicare used for acne treatment?
The main reason salicylic acid is used for acne is because it is a ‘keratolytic’. (Keratolytic therapy is treatment to remove warts and other lesions in which the epidermis produces excess skin) This means it breaks down and exfoliates (چِھلکا اُتارنا ۔ پَرت اُتارنا) dead skin cells. Salicylic acid is particularly good for the blocked pore type of acne because it penetrates the hair follicle and helps keep the pores from getting clogged. Typically for acne, salicylic acid is used in 0.5 – 2% strengths.
Why is Femicare great for skin?
Salicylic acid is great for gently but effectively reducing blocked pore type of acne. It is also great for helping to lighten any discoloration or hyper pigmentation (Hyper pigmentation may be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris) that result from the acne as it heals in ethnic skin. Even sensitive skin can typically tolerate low concentrations of salicylic acid. One way to reap the benefits of salicylic acid while minimizing the irritation is to use salicylic acid as a wash.
