INCI:Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid found in many plants but it's most well know source is White Willowor Salix alba from which it;s name is derived. Salicylic acid is the active metabolite of the drug Asprin (Acetylsalicylic acid) a well know pain reliving medication.

Topically, Salicylic acid is most commonly found in products used to combat acne and other skin conditions such as dandruff, calusses and warts. It acts as a comdeolytic and bateriostatic agent meaning it stimulates the shedding off dead skin cells, unclogs pores and inhibits the growth of potentially acne causing bacteria. These properties also make it useful as a 'chemical peel'.
This product is over 99% pure, seek professional advice and dilute before use.

Please note, Salicylic acid is very poorly water soluble and will need to be dissolved in a suitable solvent such as ethanol or propylene glycol before incorporating into your formulations. The use of surfactants can also be useful.

Great for anti aging skin care

Not easy to work with but a great active ingredient.

Salicylic acid

Burns a little but i hope it will work for my acne prone skin. Just mix it with some face oil or cream and you’re good to go

Solubility issue

I had problem of dissolving it in a water/alcohol mixed solution. Maybe my scale isn’t working perfectly causing I put too much in? It sits in the bottom like crystal. I read betaine trimethyglycine can help increasing the solubility of SA in water but Pure Nature doesn’t seem to carry it. And I also wonder if it’s okay to put it in finished cream? Would be nice that PN can provide more information and guidance on these tricky ingredients.

Skin brightening

I have purchased the salicylic acid powder twice now and use a tiny amount every second day mixed in with my moisturiser and skin oil. It has done absolute wonders for my skin. I no longer get bumps and blemishes and if I do they heal super fast. My pores on my nose are a lot smaller as an added bonus. I will continue to buy this product in the future as its a must in my skin care routine.

Good quality salicylic acid

A little tricky to mix (you need ethanol or some form of alcohol to dilute this - doesn’t work with witch hazel). However it’s great for making homemade toner for problematic skin.
