Keratosis Pilaris Beta Exfo Tonic 1%


Beta Hydroxy Acids, AKA (salicylic acid), can penetrate inside the pore to help clear away dead skin cells that have built up within the pore. Beta hydroxy acids are not as aggressive as alpha hydroxy acids, but we still advise caution with topical acid preparation.

This is a 1% strength precisely for Keratosis Pilaris or those wanting less Salicylic Acid in their routine.

Beta Exfo™ Tonic 1%:  pH 3.2-3.8

Method of Application
If you are new to acids, use every three days. In total, exfoliate no more than 3 to 4 times per week.

Use on clean skin (skin can be dampened with hydrosol, toner or fruit mists, or it can be dry). Apply a few drops with clean fingertips, then wait 20 minutes before using any other products. The acid will self-neutralize and then you can continue with your routine.

The exception to the 20 minute wait rule is that if the acids are very uncomfortable. If so, rinse immediately and build up a tolerance to the acids over about a months time, increasing the length of time every few days. Acids, however, are not meant to be comfortable as they are a remodeling tool.
