INCi Water and Glycerine and Salix Alba Bark Extract
Preserved with Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate
Willow Bark Extract is a source of natural salicylic acid-like ingredients which has been shown to contribute effects similar to those seen from synthetic salicylic acid with none of the drawbacks associated with its use, primarily irritation. As such, it is a safe way to get the benefits of a ß-hydroxy acid.
Salicylic acid, enhances skin cell turnover by promoting exfoliation, resulting in a general improvement in the appearance of the skin and a smoothing effect with accompanying reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Also known for its antimicrobial properties, it can be useful as a remedy for problem skin conditions particualry for combination and acne prone skin.
Willow Bark Extract is ideal for adding to skin toners though it can also be employed in moisturising creams and gels.
