Salicylic acid is a Beta Hydroxyl Acid. Occurring naturally in various plants. During the 5th century B.C., Hippocrates, a Greek physician, would often write about a bitter powder derived from the willow bark which acted as a painkiller and fever reducer. In modern times, salicylic acid is more commonly used as an effective treatment against acne and scars.
Salicylic acid is oil soluble, thus it is able to permeate through the epidermis (oil based). The dermis, which lies beneath the epidermis, is water based and thus Salicylic acid is unable to penetrate this layer. This makes Salicylic acid peels safe for at home use. However, care must always be taken to thoroughly cleanse skin before and after peel to maintain skin bacteria-free.
Salicylic acid peels 10% strength are ideal treatments for individuals who are new to salicylic peels. First time users should always start at 10% to avoid burns.
Precautions: Individuals allergic to Salicylic acid and aspirin should refrain from usage. If you are using certain medications like Retin-A or Accutane, always consult with your physician or dermatologist before applying peel.

Step 1: Remove makeup
Step 2: Cleanse face with an oil-free cleanser and pat dry.
Step 3: Prep skin with an alcohol/water solution (50/50 mixture). This will help to break up any oil on skin's surface for a more even application. We recommend ASDM Beverly Hills Pre Peel Treatment Pad.
Step 4: Once dry, apply chemical peel as instructed in packaging.
Step 5: Leave on 1-5 minutes. Watch for redness, if too much redness or pain occurs immediately neutralize peel.
Step 6: Rinse thoroughly with warm water. No neutralising solution is needed. Salicylic Acid is self-neutralising.
