Known for its keratolytic and comedolytic properties, Salicyclic acid is the active ingredient in this peel. When present in high concentrations creates a white epidermolysis on papules, pustules, and comedones after the application. The upper part of the pustule frequently breaks, allowing the acid to act from the epithelia of the follicle towards the sebaceous gland.
Anti-inflammatory properties (inhibit synthesis of prostaglandins), antipruritic, antiseptic, antimicrobial (reducing the population of Propionibacterium acnes), astringent, anti-aging (accelerates the elimination of corneocytes), photoprotective (derivatives that absorb UVB radiation), and anti-epidermoplastic properties.
