How is my skin is going to benefit from salicylic acid?
If you are asking yourself these questions: What is salicylic acid?
Everyone talks about salicylic acid, but I don’t have a clue about the benefits or if it is suitable for my skin type? You are at the right place to find your answers.
What is Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic acid can be synthetic or natural, it’s a powerful ingredient generally used in multiple cosmetics products. At Decléor, we use a natural version of salicylic acid.
We have researched meticulously to produce skin care regiments with Salicylic Acid from 100% natural Essential Oils for optimal tolerance and efficiency to address conditions like pimples, blocked pores and blackheads.
Some women might experience pimples from the Cutibacterium Acnes, while others only get clogged pores and blackheads – as well as pimples – during stressful times or hormonal changes such as puberty, monthly menstrual cycles, pregnancy or menopause.
What is natural Salicylic Acid?
We derive our Salicylic Acid naturally from the Wintergreen plants which is a traditional medicinal plant and well known for its high concentration in salicylate derivatives.
When we distillate the leaves of Wintergreen plants we draw our Wintergreen Essential Oil, and, we extract the salicylate derivate and hydrolyze it to obtain our natural origin salicylic acid.
As Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) the hydroxy part of the molecule is separated from the acid part by two carbon atoms. Now, this structure is more important than you might think as it makes the Salicylic Acid more oil-soluble, allowing it to better penetrate into the pores of your skin and work its cleansing magic from the inside out.
What can Salicylic Acid do for your skin?
First and foremost, our Wintergreen Salicylic Acid breaks the cellular junctions – the natural gluethat holds the cells together to eliminate dead skin cells in the upper layers of the epidermis without leaving any residue, leaving the skin smoother and softer. It unclogs pores and deeply purifies them.
While our Wintergreen Salicylic Acid is hard at work unclogging pores, it also comes with an impressive anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial bonus which can contribute to a quicker recovery of inflamed pimples and puss-filled pustules.
With our Wintergreen Salicylic Acid, Decleor goes one step further providing Keratolytic Benefits which is extremely important for any level of impurities in your skin as it promotes exfoliation by softening and sloughing off the top layer of the skin cells.
