Salicylic acid, also known as salicylic acid, a fat-soluble organic acid, scientific name BHA, white acicular or hairy crystalline powder, an important fine chemical raw material.Salicylic acid is itself a widely used “antiseptic” in the medical industry.
As salicylic acid is a fat-soluble organic acid, it can quickly enter the pores, effectively inhibit the excess sebum on the skin surface, and promote the metabolism of the cuticle, because of the excessive accumulation of cutin pores formed by corner plugs and inflammatory acne, has a certain therapeutic effect.
Salicylic acid as a -hydroxy acid, like fruit acid, can reduce the concentration of calcium ions, make keratinocytes between the links loose, promote keratinocytes shedding.
When salicylic acid concentration reaches 1-3%, it can promote keratinization and relieve itching.When the concentration reaches 5-10%, the cutin can be dissolved.
Salicylic acid dissolving cutin action, can prevent pore clog, let the sebum inside pore eliminate in time outside the body, prevent acne, acne generation.
For acne that has already formed, you can soften horny skin, loosen the horn plug, and remove closed acne.Salicylic acid also has certain effect on removing blackheads.
When the concentration of salicylic acid is greater than 0.3%, it can play an inhibitory effect on gram-positive, gram-negative bacteria and pathogenic yeast.Salicylic acid can also inhibit the growth of fungi.
Salicylic acid is fat soluble organic acid, compare other composition, enter hair follicle more easily inside, restrain all sorts of germ, reduce the harm that germ does to the skin, have very big help to eliminate dark sore, acne.
Salicylic acid has certain anti-inflammatory ability.Inflammation is a defensive response in which the body is stimulated by the outside world and various tissues are mobilized to fight against the stimuli, manifested as redness, swelling, heat, pain and dysfunction.
A moderate inflammatory response is helpful in resisting outside aggression, but overreaction can cause damage to the body.
Salicylic acid ACTS on the wall cells of the hair follicle, which can help remove blocked hair follicles, correct abnormal cell shedding, and prevent pores from blocking for mild acne.
It is the most effective for blackheads. It can reduce abnormal shedding of hair follicle walls and prevent the production of new lesions, but it has no effect in reducing sebum secretion and eliminating acne bacillus.
