Natural Salicylic Acid: Your new BFF for blemish-free skin
Salicylic Acid is currently the 7th most searched ingredient term on Google and with good reason – it is one of acne’s biggest enemies! Many of us have become accustomed to slathering Salicylic Acid enriched products onto our pimples during the night and are impressed to see that they appear dried up and less noticeable as soon as just the morning after!
With an estimated 70% of adult women (25 years and over) facing the skin issues associated with combination skin such as blemishes, oily shine, clogged pores and blackheads on a daily basis, it’s no wonder that this miracle ingredient has become a staple in our arsenal of spot-busting skincare must-haves.
Our skin has never been subject to such harsh conditions from pollution, to stress and hormonal changes as well as harsh cosmetic ingredients. All these factors contribute to an unsettled and often reactive epidermis, which results in the appearance of blemishes and clogged pores.
Caudalie has created a new skincare range called Vinopure to help tackle these issues with a powerful composition of organic, purifying essential oils and our favourite – 100% natural Salicylic Acid.
The majority of Salicylic Acid found in anti-blemish skincare is extracted from petroleum derivatives which can lead to irritation for sensitive skin types. Caudalie has extracted Salicylic Acid in its purest form from the leaves of the Wintergreen plant, originating from Asia, to provide a gentle and non-irritating range for combination skin that harnesses the oil-regulating and anti-blemish powers of this popular ingredient.
How does Natural Salicylic Acid work to tackle blemishes?
Salicylic Acid works to exfoliate the skin’s surface, targeting the keratin (the natural glue) between skin cells to make it easier for dead skin cells to be removed and cleansed from the skin. Furthermore, what makes Salicylic Acid even more beneficial for combination to oily skin, is that it is oil-soluble. This allows it to penetrate deep into pores, ridding them of impurities and oxidised sebum. As a result, pores are tightened and unclogged, leaving the skin’s texture refreshed and refined.
Caudalie’s new Vinopure range features three easy-use products to purify, hydrate and mattify combination to oily skin.
Vinopure Clear Skin purifying Toner: Enriched with Caudalie’s signature organic grape water, this highly natural formula gently purifies and refines the skin without irritating or drying it out. Apply to cleansed skin with a cotton pad both morning and night.
Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum: Ultra-concentrated in powerful essential oils, natural salicylic acid and organic rose water, this lightweight serum controls sebum levels and reduces blemishes. Use morning and evening after the toner. This powerful formula can also be used as a localised treatment for instant results on stubborn blemishes.
Vinopure Skin Perfecting Mattifying Fluid: This light and moisturising fluid contains natural silica powders to immediately absorb excess serum, reduce blemishes and provide an even base for make-up application. Apply after the serum to hydrate and provide comfort to the skin.
