Salicylic acid is an ideal ingredient for problematic skin prone to clogged pores because it is the only oil-soluble acid, which means that it effectively penetrates deeply into pores, has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps with excessive sebum production. That is why our Clarion serum with 2% salicylic acid has been a bestseller for almost five years in a row.
Because this product, like our Clarion serum, contains 2% salicylic acid and has thus become the fourth product in the green line formulated to prevent imperfections on oily and combination skin.
What makes it different?
Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser is an ideal 2in1 product for all skincare minimalists. At the same time, it cleanses the face, ie removes excess sebum and makeup residue, while also treating clogged pores and exfoliating for soft, smooth skin.
What does it contain?
Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser formulation is designed to maximize the function of problematic skin. With 2% salicylic acid, this product is enriched with zinc which helps to remove excess sebum, while the addition of allantoin and betaine has a soothing effect on the skin. Biomimetic dipeptide carnosine, amino acid arginine and ginseng extract further protect and support skin function.
Tips for use
This versatile product is great for beginners who are starting to introduce acids into their routine and is also suitable for teenage skin that is prone to imperfections. It can be used as a stand-alone cleanser or as a second step after Atomic.
Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser is a great choice if you want to try salicylic acid in your routine, and you have more sensitive or thin skin that does not tolerate the "leave-on" type of products. The contact method changes the approach of use: salicylic acid needs only a few minutes to penetrate deep into the pore. Rinsing after a short contact with the skin reduces the possibility of irritation and dryness.
Thanks to salicylic acid, Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser can be of great help for skin prone to seborrheic dermatitis because it has an anti-inflammatory effect and gently removes flakes that are increasingly forming on such skin.
Unfortunately, for many people, acne is also a problem on other parts of the body, most commonly on the back and chest. Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser is ideal for all problem areas on the body and can be easily used in the shower. In addition, salicylic acid has a positive effect on skin prone to keratosis pilaris or so-called "chicken skin" that appears on the upper arms. The gentle but strong formula of Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser exfoliates and helps soften the rough texture of the skin.
Clairon 2% BHA Cleanser is not recommended for individuals who are allergic to salicylic acid, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Which one to choose: Amphibian or Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser?
If you are wondering which gel cleanser is right for you, the decision is simple: we recommend Amphibian to everyone for everyday use, regardless of skin type, but especially for skin that is prone to dehydration and redness. Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser will be ideal in the daily facial care routine for resistant, oily and combination skin, but it can also be used for sensitive, thin skin 1-2 times a week.
Skincare after Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser
While using this product, we recommend a gentle routine with a moisturiser and sunscreen. Clarion 2% BHA Cleanser can be combined with other concentrated products if the skin is accustomed to each product separately and tolerates layered application of potent products, but we do not recommend simultaneous use with other products containing acids and retinoids. Choose wisely, because sometimes - less is more.
