Hey everyone so it’s my last day @in_cosmetics and I have been loving it and I hope you have enjoyed the stories. The highlight so far for me has been the formulation lab and I am off again today before I fly back home tonight. Just looking and discovering ingredients, playing with formulations and consuming 5000 coffees (I feel this place is the size of 10 Costco’s and I wish I had bought my trainers along). This is definitely an event for industry professionals, cosmetic chemists, labs and manufacturers to really discover some interesting ingredients. I also couldn’t think of a better post to write today than an ingredient spotlight. Here I am going to revisit Salicylic Acid. This is one of my all-time favourite ingredients and I use this several times a week if not daily. It is an ingredient that is compulsory in my skincare regime. Since I am congestion prone and suffer blackheads very easily this helps keep the congestion and blackheads effortlessly at bay.⁠⠀

I have had 2 Aha moments over the years – information that I didn’t previously know about Salicylic Acid that was just an awesome surprise. The best one being studies showing how Salicylic Acid inhibits UVB-induced sunburn cell formation 😊 ( so for those asking whether it’s safe to wear in the morning).
