The active ingredient in this peel is Salicylic Acid – but how does it work to give you clearer skin? Salicylic acid is an oil-soluble ingredient, which means it will get deep into your pores, clean them out and improve your overall complexion. Every spot starts with a comedone (blackhead). This peel is so effective, especially at treating acne, because it tackles the problem at its origin. By starving its fuel acne, this peel removes comedones, deep-cleanses pores, and provides an anti-bacterial action. Obagi has created the Obagi Radiance Peel to decongest, brighten, and smoother the skin for texture. It contains 20% Salicylic Acid, 2% Glycolic Acid and 2% Lactic Acid.
