Salicyclic Acid Life: Thank you for your question. Beauty products and toiletries have varying amounts of time they remain effective and referring to the manufacturer's guidelines and expiry dates is the best recommendation. Face washes that contain salicyclic acid are no exception to this and inspecting the product is the best approach. If no expiry date is listed, assessment by a medical provider is recommended.
