Medicinal Uses of Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid has been used in ancient times to relieve pain and fever, as well as anti-inflammatory properties.

In modern medicine, methyl salicylate is also used to relieve joint and muscle pain; choline salicylate is widely used to treat mouth ulcers.

Similar to fruit acids (alpha-hydroxy acids), salicylic acid is a key exfoliating ingredient in many skin care products, and when used in pharmaceuticals, it can treat acne, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, corns, and keratosis follicles. [8] When used to remove hypertrophic calluses, a typical concentration is a 6% aspirin-vaseline ointment, which is applied to the area for 1 hour and then washed off.

External use of salicylic acid has antibacterial properties against microorganisms, and its antiseptic power is close to that of phenol. Salicylic acid can dissolve keratin, and its preparation concentration has different pharmacological effects:

1%-3% has keratinogenic and antipruritic effects; common over-the-counter (OTC) salicylic acid shampoos Salicylic acid 3%

5%-10% has a keratolytic effect, which can dissolve the adhesive between the connecting squamous cells in the stratum corneum, so that the keratin is loosened and desquamated, and it can also have an antifungal effect (because after removing the stratum corneum and inhibiting the growth of fungi, Salicylic acid aids in the penetration of other antifungal drugs and inhibits bacterial growth).

The 25% concentration has a corrosive effect and can remove hypertrophic calluses. For seborrhea, seborrheic dermatitis, superficial mycosis, warts, corns, calluses and local keratin hyperplasia.

Salicylic acid for Skin

  1. Dissolve keratin
    As a beta-hydroxy acid, salicylic acid, like AHA, can reduce the concentration of calcium ions, loosen the links between keratinocytes, and promote keratinocyte shedding. When the concentration of salicylic acid reaches 1-3%, it can promote keratin metabolism and relieve itching. When the concentration reaches 5-10%, the keratin can be dissolved.

    The role of salicylic acid in dissolving keratin can prevent clogging of pores, let the sebum in the pores be excreted in time, and prevent the formation of acne and pimples. For acne that has already formed, it can soften the keratin, loosen the angle plug, and remove the closed acne. Salicylic acid also has a certain effect on blackhead removal.

  2. Antibacterial
    When the concentration of salicylic acid is greater than 0.3%, it can inhibit gram-positive, gram-negative bacteria and pathogenic yeast. Salicylic acid can also inhibit the growth of fungi.

    Salicylic acid is a fat-soluble organic acid. Compared with other ingredients, it is easier to enter the hair follicle, inhibit various germs, reduce the damage of germs to the skin, and is of great help in eliminating acne and acne.

  3. Anti-inflammatory
    Salicylic acid has certain anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is a defense response of the human body against external stimuli that mobilize various tissues to resist the stimuli, manifested as redness, swelling, heat, pain and dysfunction.

    A moderate inflammatory response is helpful for resisting external aggressions, but an overreaction can cause harm to the human body.

  4. Acne
    Salicylic acid acts on the cells of the hair follicle wall, which can help remove blocked hair follicles, correct abnormal cell shedding, and prevent pore blockage for minor acne;

    The most effective for blackheads, it can reduce the abnormal shedding of hair follicle walls and prevent the generation of new lesions, but it has no effect on reducing sebum secretion and eliminating acne bacteria.
