A smooth, white powder which contains natural salicylic acid, or salicylates, known to promote cell renewal and anti-microbial activity. This material provides gentle, yet highly effective, exfoliating benefits and will not irritate the skin. Pores can be easily irritated and/or clogged by dead skin, both of which cause them to appear larger. Exfoliation helps removes dead skin, as well as dirt and debris, while smoothing the skin for a more even complexion. The process of exfoliation can prevent the inflammation and irritation of pores, making them less noticeable. FSS White Willow Bark Extract Powder delivers exfoliating benefits and anti-microbial activity without irritating the skin, and can easily be incorporated into aqueous and dispersible in anhydrous cosmetic products.
