  1. Hey John, I posted a comment on your FutureDerm post because I wanted the “Dermies” to see the love.
    Anyway, I’ll repost it here in case your “Helices” (bah. I am a nerd.) wanted something to discuss:

    “I like to think of myself as an informed consumer. I merely skimmed over this article when it was first posted. Nothing registered because I assumed I knew it all. 😛 I came back (after starting to read Part II) to read it more carefully and guess what? I’ve always considered SA a type of BHA … probably because good ol’ Paula Begoun equates the two (e.g.,when talking about the difference between AHAs and BHAs). Do BHA and SA have a similar function? I’m going to go read Part II now… perhaps you’ll address this.”

    • Well thanks for thinking about me haha! And I’m glad that you could learn something.

      Actually, BHAs aren’t used that often in skin care, and they function differently than SA. There’s actually no other topical ingredient that functions like SA, therefore, it will most likely not be replaced anytime soon. I’ll actually be addressing the differences in Part III, which like I said before, will be about the common misconceptions of HAs.

      Thanks for commenting as always!
