What makes this product unique?
Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant has a lightweight lotion texture that works to reveal smooth, clear skin by exfoliating both the skin's surface and inside the pore. Because BHA helps reshape the pore lining, it unclogs pores and exfoliates the built up layers on the outside of skin while improving cell turnover rate. The result is healthier, smoother skin. This creates a dramatic improvement in the skin's appearance, feel, and function, especially if blemishes are a concern. There is a great deal of research indicating that BHA (beta hydroxy acid) increases collagen production and drastically smooths the surface of skin. Additionally, BHA has anti-bacterial properties that attack blemish-causing bacteria. This elegant formula is non-occlusive, contains no waxy, heavy ingredients and absorbs easily, setting to a soft matte finish. This product is 100% fragrance- and colorant-free with a pH range of 3.2-3.8. Every Paula's Choice BHA product is formulated with additional soothing agents.
Who is this product for?
All skin types may use this product, but the texture is especially suited for those with normal to dry skin. NOTE: Those allergic to aspirin (acetylsalicylate) should not use products containing salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid).

Paula's Choice does not condone the use of animal testing on cosmetics and never has. Throughout Paula's 30 years of writing about the beauty industry she has consistently spoken out against testing cosmetics on animals. Paula's Choice, LLC. does not test our products on animals and never will. Additionally, we do not fund any independent source to conduct animal testing on our behalf. We are committed to the global adoption of alternative safety testing methods and the elimination of animal testing on cosmetics worldwide. In April 2013, Paula's Choice became an officially certified member of the Leaping Bunny Program. The requirements for the Leaping Bunny Certification include a commitment to eliminate animal testing not only from the company, but also from our ingredient suppliers. The result is a product guaranteed to be 100% free of new animal testing. The program is administered by a coalition of animal rights organizations, including the Humane Society of the United States and the National Anti-Vivisection Society.
