    The 2% salicylic acid and 0.5% arginine containing serum addresses acne and oily skin issues. Due to its lipid solubility, salicylic acid dissolves in the lipids found in the epidermis' hair follicles and sebaceous glands. Salicylic acid treats acne, psoriasis, and keratosis pilaris effectively with its comedolytic and keratolytic properties. The human body contains arginine, a necessary amino acid that helps to promote collagen synthesis and hydrate the skin, making it an effective component against aging. Cleanser, clearer skin, and an overall improvement in quality can be achieved through regular use of this product. It is best suited for individuals with combination, oily, and problematic skin.

    How to use

    Make sure to utilize 2-4 drops of the serum for your face and neck area, twice a day, morning and evening.

    For best results, we recommend using this serum as the third skin care step after cleansing and toning. Read more about the Moon Cosmetics skincare routine and its steps here.

    Bear in mind that this product is designed exclusively for external use and should be avoided if you exhibit any hypersensitivity or allergy to any of the ingredients. Keep children away and avoid contact with eyes. Using this serum requires avoiding sunlight exposure.



    Scientific validity

    To minimize skin sensitivity, we excluded additional substances that dissolve salicylic acid in water from our serum formula. Open comedones and oily skin can benefit from the lipid-soluble salicylic acid's ability to penetrate pores effectively.

    Reducing flaking and preventing exacerbation of keratosis pilaris and psoriasis are among salicylic acid's exfoliating benefits.

    Amino acids are great skin moisturizers and hair conditioners[5].

    Arginine, contained in our serum, has skin moisturizing and collagen synthesis-stimulating properties, making it a standout anti-aging ingredient. We ensured an anhydrous system to make sure the serum retains skin moisture.
