OligoPur Blemish Target Gel - Product Description
The active ingredient are Normaline and salicylic acid.
According to Phytomer, the use of Normaline is based on it’s purifying properties. Normaline, is a seawater derivative. It is extracted from Asparagopsis Armata, otherwise known as red algae. This algae is specifically exposed to surface bacteria, which contributes to it’s ability to powerful purification properties.
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.
The product is hypoallergenic, non comdogenic and can be used in conjunction with makeup.
