Salicylic acid – a widely known active ingredient
The active ingredient salicylic acid has been known for a long time and occurs naturally as a derivative in a wide variety of plants, but can also be produced synthetically.
Salicylic acid is an anti-inflammatory with analgesic and corneal dissolving properties and is only used externally due to its known side effects. For oral use, the derivative, acetylsalicylic acid, is often used in combination with other active ingredients.
Salicylic acid is mainly used for the treatment of skin diseases such as psoriasis, acne or seborrheic eczema. Due to its desquamating and corneal dissolving effect, salicylic acid is a popular remedy for the removal of corns and warts.
