Willow Bark bio-extract (Salix nigra bark bio-extract)
This botanical powerhouse contains natural salicylic acid, a BHA used for acne treatment because of its ability to help skin shed dead cells and clear pores. The inspiration came from Thanaka, a local form of the same tree, used by the people of Burma for centuries, and still in use today as it answers all 3 major skin concerns in this country; sun protection, acne prevention and skin lightening. This Boost is therefore the ultimate solution for calming inflammation on sensitive or problematic skin. Skin resurfacing is also crucial for addition to the skincare regime for mature skin as it provides more radiant looking complexion and helps to maximise your products absorption.
Salicylic Acid (BHA)
Salicylic acid – a natural form of Aspirin (from Latin salix, willow tree) can help to relieve inflammation and redness. Salicylic acid is especially useful on oily skin prone to breakouts, blackheads and whiteheads.
