Capryloyl Salicylic Acid is a lipophilized derivative of salicylic acid or otherwise known as a Lipohydroxy Acid (LHA). The ingredient is just as effective as salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), which is key in treating acne and oily skin, known for its exfoliating properties, ability in unclogging pores, reducing acne inflammation and oily skin which promotes acne, to encourage a flawless look.
Capryloyl salicylic acid however works even more gently, stimulating epidermal regeneration, and is proven to allow better penetration into the skin pores, giving a deeper, more effective cleansing and treatment. Because of this, lower concentrations of caprypoyl salicylic acid can be used in skin care formula than salicylic acid, producing a gentler but effective product.
Capryloyl Salicylic Acid is a key ingredient found in the Mellow Naturals Clarifying Serum with Sophora Root, it is a one-of-a-kind face serum targeted towards oil and acne control, as well as skin repair and skin revitalising effects. The formula is gentle and extremely suitable for sensitive skin.
