Where can i buy salicylic acid from???

My derm said many people find salicylic acid benefical, however i have looked to buy some but can't find it anywhere.
I live in the UK and was wondering if anyone knew where to buy salicylic acid peels of about 15% strength??

There are also some daily face & body wash products available with lower strengths of acid (1 - 2%).
Did your derm actually suggest the salicylic peels, or did he mean, perhaps, trying a face wash containing salicylic acid? Be careful if you try the peel. You could take weeks to recover.

DEFINITELY make sure of what your derm meant, but I highly doubt that he would tell you to go out and buy 15% salicylic acid though. To answer your original question, if you're just looking for products with SA in it (around 2%), it's practically everywhere. Almost every single acne-related drugstore/over the counter item has SA. I assume the UK can't be too different.

you can buy the actual powder at www.gardenofwisdom.com if you want to make serums or your own peel.
makeupartistschoice.com sells various percentage SA peels too.

It's a 20% salicylic peel.
If you're going to use these peels at home be sure to read and follow the directions! Don't glob it on, only leave it on for the lowest contact time on the directions and slowly raise it every few weeks once your skin get's accustomed to it,don't pick off the peeling skin, and please wear sunscreen!
Only people willing to follow the directions should buy these peels, and you should preferably get it done by a professional anyways.Lots of derms do these mild peels in their office these days. For stronger peels seek out a skincare clinic.
