Acetylsalicylic acid

Post by Michel91 »


I have just started using zz cream for my rosacea. However my doctor is quite reluctant about this, because I have a mild kidney insufficiency and there is that acetylsalicylic acid among the ingredients. What do you think? Could it be possible to have an indication about the proportions of that ingredient? If I have to stop using zz cream, do you sell another product that would have roughly the same recipe without it? Because it is only one week since I have started, and it looks like it is really working fine on me :(

Any help / insight would be greatly appreciated!

There is 0.5% Salicylic acid in the ointment, so not much
maybe you can ask your doctor.
No, we don’t have the ointment or something similar without the Salicylic acid,
the ZZ ointment is the safest one to use, there is also around 2.8 % boric acid inside
but we have the cosmetic version without the boric acid if you would like.
