How it works
Salicylic acid works by softening and loosening the dry, scaly, or thickened skin which, in turn, causes shedding of the outer layer of skin. Precipitated sulfur prevents fungus from multiplying and thereby treat infection caused by the fungus. It also removes excess oil from the face and controls acne and acne breakouts.
