Salicylic acid is the main active ingredient in aspirin. It comes from willow bark extract. Since antiquity, the willow tree has been known for its febrifuge and anti-inflammatory properties. Salicylic acid was discovered in 1829 by a French pharmacist named Pierre-Joseph Leroux.
In cosmetics, salicylic acid is commonly used as a balm, occlusive dressing or diluted lotion to prevent acne or excessive sweating.
THE BENEFITS OF SALICYLIC ACID
Salicylic acid is now recognised for its peeling effect that helps cleanse the upper layer of the epidermis. This active cosmetic is also a very good keratolytic agent. It acts with keratin on the stratum corneum by exfoliating surface cells for smoother, softer skin.
Salicylic acid also helps fight blackheads, ingrown hairs, stimulate cell renewal, reduce skin blemishes and irregularities, roughness and calluses. In low concentrations, salicylic acid has a bacteriostatic, photo-protective, anti-pruritic and astringent action.
