From The Manufacturer

EXFOLIATING BODY WASH: Salicylic Acid (SA) is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), an exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and smooths skin. It acts as a chemical exfoliant, which feels less harsh than physical ones like exfoliating body scrubs. HYDRATING & SMOOTHING: Salicylic Acid helps exfoliate rough skin and bumps that can appear on the upper arms and legs, leaving a softer, smoother look and feel. Contains Hyaluronic Acid to help retain skin’s moisture and Niacinamide to help calm skin. SALICYLIC ACID SKIN CARE: Massage CeraVe Salicylic Acid Body Wash into skin in gentle, circular motions with a washcloth or shower loofah. Can be paired with CeraVe Salicylic Acid Moisturizing Cream for Rough and Bumpy Skin to moisturize & exfoliate. 3 ESSENTIAL CERAMIDES: Ceramides are found naturally in the skin and make up 50% of the lipids in the skin barrier. All CeraVe products are formulated with three essential ceramides (1, 3, 6-II) to help restore and maintain the skin’s natural barrier. GENTLE ON SKIN: Fragrance free, paraben-free, allergy-tested, and non-comedogenic.

Made with the BHA salicylic acid, she explains that this body wash “exfoliates and also hydrates the skin with hyaluronic acid, and helps the skin barrier because it also contains three different ceramides.”
