Hi guys, I was wondering if any of you experts know if it's possible to make a salicylic acid facewash? I currently use Clenziderm 2% SA face wash and its quite expensive. It would be so much cheaper to make my own. Many thanks

I'm sure it's possible but I think a 2% SA toner would be easier and the active ingredient would be staying on your skin as opposed to washing it off. SA is soluble in alcohol so it would need to made into solution first then could be added to an existing toner. Or you could buy willow bark extract and add it at a concentration of 2% to an existing toner.
