What is Minimalist® Salicylic + LHA 02% Face Cleanser?
Contains Salicylic Acid (BHA) that penetrates deep into the skin & scoops out the dirt, debris, and sebum, hence reducing the oily look of the skin.
Formulated with Capryloyl Salicylic Acid (LHA), which, unlike Salicylic Acid, stays on the outer layer of skin and provides gentle exfoliation, revealing soft skin. The combination provides multi-level cleansing.
Boosted with anti-bacterial Zinc and several hydrating & soothing ingredients like Xylitylglucoside, Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Allantoin, and Pentyle Glycol for hydrating overall after-feel.
Formulated with 2 very mild sulfate-free surfactants (cleansers) that provide optimum cleaning without stripping skin lipids or proteins.
All our ingredients are sourced from leading global suppliers. Our Salicylic Acid comes from Merck, Germany, and is a high purity grade ingredient.
- Salicylic Acid (BHA): Salicylic Acid is a relatively smaller molecule with a molecular weight of 138 g/mol, and about 58% of Salicylic Acid is able to penetrate our outermost skin layer (Stratum Corneum). This results in deeper cleaning, exfoliation, and anti-acne benefits.
- Capryloyl Salicylic Acid (LHA): Capryloyl Salicylic Acid (LHA) is a larger molecule with a molecular weight of 264 g/mol, making it almost double the size of Salicylic Acid. Because of this, only 6% of LHA penetrates past the Stratum Corneum, making it excellent for superficial skin exfoliation.
- Zinc: It normalizes sebum production and because of its anti-bacterial properties, Zinc limits the proliferation of acne-causing bacteria.
How to use Minimalist® Salicylic + LHA 02% Face Cleanser

It is working well on my sensitive skin as it controlled my excess sebum production and resulted in fewer acne breakouts. I just love how it feels when applied and how it cleanses my skin and removes excess oil, nice
