Salicylic acid’s effectiveness as an ingredient in anti-acne treatments is enhanced by its natural anti-bacterial properties.  It is effective without being harsh due to its natural anti-inflammatory properties.  It is effective in cleansing the skin without causing dryness.

This effective and popular ingredient in skincare needs to be used with due caution (see Cautions below) at a maximum concentration of 2% for leave-on products and 3% for wash-off products.

Salicylic acid is manufactured by chemical synthesis from phenol through the Kolbe-Schmidt reaction.

As an ingredient in:

  • Treatments for acne-prone skin / blackheads /pimples
  • Products for an evening of skin tone and skin texture
  • Exfoliator to eliminate keratin build-up that creates ‘bumpy’ skin, especially in conditions such as keratosis pilaris (a common, harmless condition where the skin’s surface is rough/ ‘goose pimply’).  Creates exfoliation without ‘harsh scrubbing’.
  • Pedicure treatments.  Add as an ingredient in exfoliators for hard skin on feed/treatment of calluses.
  • Anti-ageing toner to even out age spots and blemishes on mature skin.  Treats uneven skin tone.
  • Shampoo (remembering maximum concentration [3% for wash-off products]) to help slough dead skin cells on scalp/treatment of hyper keratinisation (overproduction of keratin).  Cleansing away dead cells can help ‘flat’ hair to become ‘bouncier’.
  • Anti-blemish gels worn under make-up.
  • Moisturizers for specialist anti-spot and anti-blemish properties.  

PRECAUTIONS

External use only.  Do not use undiluted.  Do not use during pregnancy.  Avoid use in products for children.
