Product Description & Benefits:
This is the highly purified, powdered extract from the bark of white willow (Salix alba). You know this almost magical extract (totally magical when you have a headache!) because it is the classical source for Salicylic Acid (aspirin). It also contains some of the best natural chemicals for your skin: apigenin, Quercetin, rutin, catechin and more. White Willow Bark Extract, containing 15% salicylic acid, will decrease inflammation, increase skin cells turnover, prevent pore clogging and kill Propionibacterium acnes. This is an important active, as it is both an excellent anti-age active and absolutely essential for acne control. Salicylic Acid is a major component of our Acne Control Cream. DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT OR ALLERGIC TO ASPIRIN. The National Reye's Syndrome Foundation, U.S. Surgeon General, the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that aspirin and combination products containing aspirin not be given to children or teenagers. The powder is also not appropriate for people who are allergic to aspirin. Please contact us and we will suggest an alternative.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?
DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.
