Tackle flaky, oily and itchy-feeling scalps head on with our Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment. ​ ​

Formulated as a pre-wash treatment, it works to gently exfoliate and slough off dead skin cells on the scalp's surface to eliminate product buildup, reduce flakes, and minimize excess oil. Clinically proven to deliver visible results after one use, the formula soothes an itchy-feeling scalp, leaving it feeling healthier and more balanced.​ ​

Known for its exfoliating properties, Salicylic Acid helps to slough off dead skin cells, reduce oil levels and remove impurities from the surface of the scalp. The addition of FLUIDIPURE™ 8G and PANTHENOL delivers extra hydration and moisturization benefits to help soothe and calm while visibly reducing the appearance of redness on the scalp.​ ​

Suitable for all hair types including sensitive scalps and colour-treated hair, use as a pre-wash treatment, 1-2 times per week to refresh the roots and maintain a calm, balanced scalp.​

  • All Hair Types

    Noticeable difference after one use

    I had been really struggling with dandruff that medicated shampoo won’t even shift. I used this and could feel a difference after one use, after three uses it’s almost disappeared. If I don’t use it once a week I notice the difference.

    could be better

    i would personally say, as everyone hyped this product. it may not be for my scalp as i did not notice a difference in my scalp and it just seemed to be getting worse than it already is. if you are also using or planning to make sure not to leave it over 10 minutes as it may cause hair loss!!!! just helping a girl out :)
