Product summary

"Farmacy Beauty - Deep Sweep 2% BHA Toner" is effective for: Anti-blemish and Exfoliation

This product could be helpful for: Moisturizing, but its actives are not the most effective or are not well-studied.

Ingredient callouts

  • This product contains acids (gluconolactone 0.20% - 0.35% and lactic acid 0.80% - 1.20%). Their concentration is low, and they will not have a strong exfoliating effect. Instead, they work to support the skin natural acid mantle and to attract water (as humectants). PHAs (gluconolactone) especially are great for improving skin hydration. They might be even able to stimulate the production of skin's natural humectants and support the healthy skin microbiome.
  • Salicylic acid (1.25% - 2.50%). This is an oil-soluble exfoliating acid. Because of this property, it can work inside pores and help reduce the congestion. It has an anti-inflammatory effect and is used to treat acne. Because it is a quite strong exfoliator, be careful with using this product too often: it could result in over-exfoliation.
  • Humectants (anhydroxylitol 0.35% - 0.60%, xylitylglucoside 0.45% - 0.70%, glycerin 0.75% - 1.10% and arginine 7.50% - 9.10%). These ingredients help attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve the skin hydration.
