Salicylic acid : A useful chemical peeling agent

salicylic

SA is a 2-hydroxybenzoic acid (from willow tree) used for superficial peeling due to its strong keratolytic and comedolytic properties. It promotes shedding of epidermal cells and due to its lipophilic properties can penetrate comedones and pores to prevent clogging and neutralize bacteria. It promotes desquamation of the upper lipophilic layers of the stratum corneum. These chemical properties explain its popularity and success in acne patients. It also has well documented anti inflammatory properties.
