Luxiva Clear Complexion Gel - Product Description
The active ingredient in Luxiva Clear Complexion Gel, is salicylic acid. Salicylic acid, is an ingredient used in many over-the-counter acne medications. In addition to treating acne, Salicylic acid is also used to treat other skin disorders including dandruff, psoriasis, calluses, corns, warts, and more. Acne is formed when skin cells inside hair follicles shed too fast and clump together, plugging up the follicle and causing a pimple. Salicylic acid helps slow down shedding of the cells inside the follicles, preventing clogging. Unless your doctor advises you otherwise, people should avoid the other over the counter medications I list: sulfur, resorcinol, or benzoyl peroxide, while using salicylic acid, as it may be overly irritating.
Merle Norman has been around for 70 years. The product line is sold through out 2000 independently owned and operated Merle Norman Cosmetic Studios in the United States and Canada.
