Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that plays an essential role in the skin’s natural exfoliation process. Originally extracted from the bark of plants such as white willow and wintergreen leaf, it is now mainly synthesized in the laboratory. This ingredient has long been used to target various skin conditions including keratosis pilaris (rough, bumpy skin), clogged pores as well as skin conditions like psoriasis. Incorporating salicylic acid into your skincare routine can reap the benefits of its exfoliating properties, for visibly softer, smoother skin.
We’ll explore in detail the multiple benefits of this powerful ingredient and how to incorporate it wisely into your daily beauty routine.
Since its discovery in 1838 by the Italian chemist Raffaele Piria, salicylic acid has revolutionized the field of beauty. But how does it work exactly?
Salicylic acid has become a real star in the cosmetics industry, being found in a variety of products such as shower gels, moisturizers and facial cleansers. It is ubiquitous and prized for its ability to revitalize your skin.
This miracle ingredient promotes skin exfoliation by releasing skin cells that stick together. Result: smooth, radiant and healthy-looking skin.
What are the properties and virtues of salicylic acid?
As a « fat-soluble » ingredient, it penetrates deep into the pores, making it an unparalleled ally for oily and acne-prone skin.

Salicylic acid is there to unclog pores by removing blemish-causing impurities.
But salicylic acid doesn’t stop there. Its gentle exfoliating properties are also a miracle cure for rough, bumpy skin.
And that’s not all ! People with psoriasis can also benefit from its benefits. With its anti-flaking action, it helps relieve symptoms and prevent future flare-ups, leaving skin soothed and comfortable.
