A note to those with chronic acne: If you are seeking to reduce the effects of acne scarring, we recommend that you consider our salicylic acid masks. In addition to exfoliating damaged skin, KAVI Salicylic Acid's comedolytic properties complement our anti-acne cleansing bars to neutralize existing acne infections, clear clogged pores, and reduce pore diameter (to help keep the size of future bacterial infections small).

Directions for Use:
1. Cleanse area to be exfoliated.
2. Using a sterile gauze, apply a thin layer of glycolic acid to the skin.
3. Wait for 8-12 minutes (4-8 minutes on sensitive skin, 1-2 minutes on first use).
4. Rinse off with cool water.
5. Apply KAVI SPF 30 on any exfoliated skin that will come into direct contact with the sun.
6. Repeat weekly until desired results are achieved.

Please review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more detailed application instructions and for information on how to check your skin's sensitivity to glycolic acid.

Note: After about six applications, results will begin to diminish. At this time, it is best to allow the skin to return to its natural regenerative pace. Following a one month interval, the surface of the skin will again comprise a connected layer of dead skin cells.

Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. In case of eye contact, flush with water. Some people may experience mild skin irritation. If irritation or redness lingers after rinsing, discontinue use and seek medical attention. Use caution when applying a solution stronger than 30% above the neckline. Keep out of reach of children.
