Prisioners Blemish Stick - Product Description
The active ingredient in Take No Prisoners Blemish Stick are Salicylic and Glycolic 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
Glycolic acid is the best-known of a group of chemicals called fruit acids or alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA). It is derived from sugar cane, so it can be considered a natural product. Citric acid from oranges and other citrus fruits also fall under the same classification as glycolic acid.
Glycolic acid works as, an exfoliating agent because of its high acidity but easy solubility. When placed on the skin as gel, glycolic acid goes under the damaged epidermis and destroys the ‘glue’ which holds dead skin to the surface. The dead skin is chemically burned off, while the other ingredients carry the individual flakes away and a water rinse neutralizes the remaining acid. Resulting in a smoother skin surface. Another benefit of glycolic acid is the properties it has to draw moisturizers into the exfoliated skin surface. It should be noted that the improper use of glycolic acid can be erosive to skin.
