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.​

    I really wanted this to work but unfortunately, all it did is leave a weird residue on my roots. I have oily scalp and can only go two days between washes if I use a lot of dry shampoo. I was hoping this product would help with removing buildup and feeling fresh but I feel greasy and like there's film on my roots. The bangs are all heavy too. Disappointing :( I did follow the instructions - 10 minutes and a double wash after. Does this just not work for some hair type?

    My holy grail!

    This is my holy grail! I often use dry shampoo to extend the days between my washes so there’s always some build up on my scalp. This helps with that so much! It makes my scalp so clean!
