Salicylic Acid Expiration Date?

Recommended Posts

I recently got an acne medication containing salicylic acid (from eBay if you must know :)) and was a bit worried to find that while one tube expires 03/2009, the other one has already "expired" (03/2008). Should I be worried at all? Or is it ok to use this product given the active ingredient? Thanks in advance.

I do believe Salicylic Acid does expire but I think like most things/products out there with an expiration date on it, you can probably use it for some time (not too long) without any problems. The expiration dates are slightly exaggerated but are there for a reason. But that's just my opinion.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I'm using the 2008 batch first, at least for a few months, then I'll go to the other one. Shouldn't be any dramas. :)
