Salicylic Acid – it is probably best known for its use as a key ingredient in topical anti-acne products. Salicylic acid as a medication is used most commonly to help remove the outer layer of the skin. As such it is used to treat warts, psoriasis, dandruff, acne, ringworm, and ichthyosis. As with other hydroxy acids, salicylic acid is a key ingredient in many skin-care products for the treatment of seborrhoeic dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, calluses, corns, keratosis pilaris, acanthosis nigricans, ichthyosis, and warts.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends the use of sun protection when using skincare products containing salicylic acid (or any other BHA) on sun-exposed skin areas.
Calamine is a skin protectant. It works by soothing and protecting the skin. Calamine is excellent when it comes to healing pimples and preventing acne.
Gardenia Extract has mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which is excellent for skincare products targeting to help refresh, revive, and soothe dry or tired skin.
Sulfur-The natural mineral sulfur is used topically to help treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, or psoriasis. Sulfur is known as a keratolytic. When applied, a keratolytic dries the skin and makes for a thinner epidermis. A pimple occurs when your pore is clogged, trapping oil and bacteria within. Sulfur helps the skin shed quicker, thus unclogging the pore and healing pesky acne
