Pure salicylic powder (99-100.5% assay).
Usage: 0.5-2% solution for face care, up to 3% for shampoo or body care products.
There are a few ways to incorporate salicylic acid into products and formulations. In formulations, salicylic acid requires a humectant to dissolve, which is then used in the water phase. It can be dissolved in propanediol, or to a lesser degree in glycerine. It is poorly soluble in water on its own. Gentle heating may be required to fully dissolve.
In ready-made products, the salicylic acid powder can be blended straight in without the need to dissolve it first.
Remember to check the pH of your product after adding salicylic acid, as it can lower the pH significantly. You don't want to go much lower than pH 3.5 or your skin may be irritated.
Do not overuse salicylic acid as it may cause dryness or irritation. Follow up with sunscreen if using in the morning/daytime, as any type of exfoliant can make your skin more susceptible to sunburn.

Love this product so much.The delivery and communication is theeee best
First time round I dissolved it in glycerin ( did not dissolve properly and crystallized at room temp) second time round I dissolved it in castor oil + bit of lemon juice - worked like a charm. Very happy
I love how it makes my skin feels. I mixed it with vegetable glycerin and made a serum from it. My skin feels soft and clear. I also mixed it into my body lotion and face wash.
Very happy with the results
I added it to a gentle facewash, my face feels soft and amazing.
Please share on how to use it, I added some on my face cream. Please help with measurements also
