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. 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 it into your formulations. The use of surfactants can also be useful.

Excellent Ingredient

Acids can be tricky to use and found this easy and the accompany video excellent. It is an unstable ingredient so trial and error is needed to get the perfect formulation but as it is not too expensive this is possible to do

Excellent for acne and acne scaring

I mix a small amount of Salicylic acid in with my face wash and it helps to keep my acne at bay. It also helps to fade old acne scars over time

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
