Originally derived from willow bark and known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, salicylic acid is used widely in preparations for the treatment of acne. It works as a keratolytic, comedolytic, and bacteriostatic agent, causing the cells of the epidermis to shed more readily, opening clogged pores and neutralising bacteria within, preventing pores from clogging up again by constricting pore diameter, and allowing room for new cell growth.
As a topical agent, and as a beta-hydroxy acid (and unlike alpha-hydroxy acids), salicylic acid is capable of penetrating and breaking down fats and lipids, making it capable of causing moderate chemical burns of the skin if at very high concentrations. It is capable of damaging the lining of pores in such cases if the solvent is alcohol, acetone, or oil. Over-the-counter limits are set at 2% for topical left on the face. Not to be used in pregnancy or if there is an allergy to aspirin.
