Sykes’ Purifying Molecules offers a liberating exfoliation experience in a novel and convenient formula. Thanks to the deep pore cleansing, superficial peeling and regenerative properties of Salicylic Acid, this hard-working exfoliating agent is a tried and tested solution to both problematic skin types, and everyday skin rejuvenation.
Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid, as such it is a very effective chemical peeling agent. With a 2% mixture, it creates an excellent balance in efficiently exfoliating the skin without any tissue damage or harmful burn.
Nowadays Salicylic Acid is synthetically produced under various scientific processes, but it was initially obtained from the bark of the willow tree and various wintergreen leaves. Its medicinal value as a pain reliever and fever reducer has been well documented since ancient times.
For exfoliation purposes, it helps the dead epidermal skin cells to shed, exposing new, more vibrant and healthy cells below. It also penetrates deep into clogged pores to remove dirt. This makes it one of the preferred ingredients for tackling problematic skin.
Once pores have been penetrated and unclogged, it helps prevent them from clogging by constricting their diameter. This helps minimize future dirt and oil from building up in the skin.
Courtney’s Application Recommendations: Use after cleansing, as often as tolerated. Saturate gauze pad or cotton round with Purifying Molecules, and gently buff skin. Rinse with cool water to neutralize. Follow with one of Sykes’ Molecular Moisture Serums.
