These ingredients are in a product I use on my face twice a day. It has Salicylic acid and other types of similar ingredients. It's by Skinceuticles and very pricey ( I'm 51 and thank God I'm able to buy this) but what I wanted to share is that Salicylic acid alone is fantastic!!!!! I'm really glad you were told about this body wash. Murad has a salicyic body spray that will spray from any angle so it's great for your back or any part of your body. If I don't use it I get those raised bumps that you have to scratch, they bleed, scab and of course the cycle just keeps going. Before I pulled out the big guns for a serum, I would use the Murad body spray on my face as well. I'd pat it in with my hands. It did keep bumps away on my arms, chest and back. It works great on my face as well. I'm sharing these other ingredients so you can reference them. You may want to mention them to your doctor. You never know what less expensive product or combination of products he can give you as well. It's really important for me to use a facial/body scrub GENTLY!!! To exfoliate the dead skin from either product. You don't want to have something to pull at, scrape or pick and even if it's not visible to mess with, it still needs to be removed. It will clog pores in the newly revealed skin. Forgive me if you know a lot of this info. I'm new here, saw your post and started typing. I probably missed a lot. 2% Dioic Acid: Naturally derived from vegetables, this ingredient helps reduce excess sebum 0.3% LHA (caproloyl salicylic acid): A lipo-hydroxy acid, LHA, evenly exfoliates skin, decongests pores, and refines the skin’s surface 1.5% Salicylic Acid: A beta-hydroxy acid refines pores and helps reduce the formation of acne 3.5% Glycolic Acid and 0.5% Citric Acid: These alpha-hydroxy acids work synergistically to smooth skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
