Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid derived from the
bark of the willow tree. Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) is a larger molecule
than their cousin, alpha hydroxy acids. The larger molecule size keeps
the beta hydroxy acid on the surface of the skin allowing it to more
effectively penetrate and exfoliate within the pore. This action within
the pores make it an ideal exfoliant for use on acne and acne-prone
skin. The larger molecule size of salicylic acid produces less
irritation than alpha hydroxy acids, making it a welcome alternative
for those with sensitive skin. Salicylic Acid is best on acne-prone
and sensitive skin types. The pore-cleansing properties of salicylic
acid make it a more effective comedone fighter. Those with sensitive
skin who cannot tolerate alpha hydroxy acids may find that they are
able to use salicylic acid with good results. However, alpha hydroxy
acid's penetration into the deeper layers of the skin produce better
anti-wrinkle and anti-aging benefits. BHA has the ability to penetrate
into the pore (AHAs do not), and thus can exfoliate inside the pore as
well on the surface of the skin; that makes it effective for reducing
blemishes, including blackheads and whiteheads.
As an exfoliant,
salicylic acid can actually increase the benefits of other therapies
used in conjunction with it. However, care should be taken to watch for
signs of excess irritation. If irritation occurs, then it would not be
a good idea to continue combining therapies. For acne prone skin,
retinol makes a good adjunct therapy for salicylic acid.

Salicylic acid is the main ingredient in so many hot products used by
celebrities like Pamela Anderson (Andersen), Jessica Simpson, Britney
Spears and Paris Hilton. It's not just for acne, it is a beta hydroxy
acid and stays on the surface of the skin polishing the skin's surface
to a glistening hue. Used by Cosmetic formulators, chemists, make your
