O3+ Derma Cult 2% Salicylic Acid Serum

O3+ Derma Cult 2% Salicylic Acid Serum is a daily gentle exfoliant with salicylic acid that helps get rid of blackheads and balances oil production to ensure a flawless matte look.

This salicylic acid serum contains a fast-absorbing formula that penetrates the pore lining and clears out impurities and sebum, offering a soft and glowing look.

Salicylic acid treats acne by reducing swelling and redness and unplugging blocked skin pores to allow pimples to shrink. It also has witch hazel extract, a perfect ingredient for easing irritation, damage, and inflammation. A brightening serum that fights dark spots caused by the sun or acne and visibly even skin tone while improving skin's glow.


Although salicylic acid is considered safe overall, it may generate a tingling sensation in starting. Sometimes, if overused it may also extract too much oil from the skin and may cause dryness and potential irritation.

In this product, we have balanced the amount of salicylic acid that does not cause any harmful effects on the skin.


  • Deep skin purification and pore tightening: Salicylic acid(Beta Hydroxy Acid) helps in pore purification by flushing out extra oil and dirt while minimizing pore size. Regular use of this serum also prevents prospective blackheads, resulting in clear skin.

  • Blackhead and Whitehead removal serum: Derma Cult Salicylic Acid penetrates the pore lining and shovels out the impurities and sebum. It makes the skin look soothing and gentle. It also removes black/whiteheads by cleaning the pores and balancing excessive oil. It is a powerful and prominent exfoliant for oily/acne-prone skin.

  • Controls acne and oil: It removes excess oil from the skin, offering a matte look. Natural extract of witch hazel provides relief from acne redness and irritation while salicylic acid helps by keeping the skin hydrated. It also helps with controlling oil production making it a potent anti-acne (or pimple) serum.

Free From: Silicones, Sulfates, Fragrances, Parabens, Essential oils, and Dyes. The product is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-free.

Skin Type: Oily skin, Regular skin, Combination skin, Dry skin, and Sensitive skin.

Does salicylic acid serum cause breakouts or purging?

Salicylic acid purging is a reaction to active ingredients that promote cell turnover in certain individuals, especially those with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Purging usually subsides in 3-4 weeks. If you are new to acids, apply them 2-3 times a week, and gradually increase the frequency.

What happens to your skin when you use salicylic acid?

Salicylic acid exfoliation is an effective exfoliant that works by entering deep into the pore walls and suppressing sebum production to shed dead skin cells. SA also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial characteristics that help to alleviate and prevent moderate acne.

What are the effect of taking salicylic acid?

Salicylic acid is great for oily and mixed skin types since it visibly improves greasiness and acne. The T-zone is usually more oily in mixed skin, so you can focus more on that area. Pregnancy and breastfeeding women should seek medical advice before incorporating SA into their daily routine.

Is it safe to take salicylic acid on a daily basis? When and how much is beneficial to the skin?

Salicylic acid at 2% is ideal and safe for all skin types. Apply 2-3 drops to a cleansed face at night to slough off clumped dirt, debris, and sebum from the pores. While using this serum, don't forget to use sunscreen every day.

Can salicylic acid be used to treat acne?

Salicylic acid promotes natural cell turnover and unclogs pores. By controlling sebum production and reducing acne scars and dark spots, it balances your oil production. It is an excellent alternative for inflammation relief.

Can salicylic acid cause peeling?

Unlike harsh chemical peels, Derma cult 2% SA doesn't damage underlying tissue and isn't painful. Salicylic acid is primarily an exfoliant as well as a keratolytic agent. In order to smooth and slough off dead skin cells, the outermost layer of skin is gently removed.

At what age should salicylic acid serum be used?

People over 18 years of age should consult their doctor before consuming SA. It is safe to consume at a younger age, but to avoid overconsumption and any undesirable effects, it is recommended for teens and adults over 18. If you have specific skin conditions or health issues, you should also consult your doctor before using any direct acid.
