What is salicylic acid?
Salicylic acid (SA) is a naturally occurring beta hydroxy acid found in plants such as willow bark. Salicylic acid has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial characteristics and the ability to exfoliate dead skin cells. Once it penetrates deep into the skin, the acid part of the molecule can dissolve excess oil and skin debris and help inflamed pimples and pustules go away faster. Another reason that makes it such a potent ingredient — targeting blackheads and whiteheads.
Benefits of salicylic acid for your skin
- Weakens Acne Bacteria
Salicylic acid unclogs and exfoliates pores, allowing fresh air to enter the skin and creating an oxygen-rich environment less conducive to acne germs.
- Cleans Excess Oil from Pores
It is oil-soluble, exfoliates the pore lining, and reduces oil accumulation.
- Prevents Future Acne
It is a comedolytic, which means it prevents the formation of new whiteheads and blackheads.
- Soothes Inflammation
Willow bark includes a salicin molecule, which is found naturally in salicylic acid. Salicin, related to aspirin, is an anti-inflammatory that soothes sensitive and inflamed skin.
- Exfoliates Dead Skin Cells
Salicylic acid is a peeling agent that exfoliates dead skin cells and speeds up the regeneration of new skin cells.
