Some skincare and health information

Here is an article with some useful information. To see a list of all skincare articles, please go here. To see a list of general health information, please go here.


About Salcicylic Acid - An Ingredient in Many Cleansing and Anti-acne products

Salicylic acid (ortohydroksybenzoic acid) and derivates of it is found in the nature in the einner bark of willow. The substance has its name form the willow tree (salix) whose leaves contain salicylic acid.

The molecule contains a benzen ring, a carboxylic group that makes it acidic and a hydroxylic group that also mekes the compund an phenol (aromatic alcohol) that can esterify with other acids.

Instead of benzoic acid itsef, one often encounters the salts of the acid or bezoates or esters of the acid, for example acetyl-salicylic acid or aspirin.

Basic effects of salicylic acid

The substance can reduce pain. It alleveates inflammation. It can reduce fever. It also has anti-bacterial actions. The acid has a dissolving effect on aggregates of keratine (horn substance) and on many fatty or vaxy elements.

It is especially effective to loosen solidified  aggregations where keratine and fatty substances are blended. It therefore helps to dissolve cloggs in the pores in the skin or excessive horny layers upon the skin surface. It also stimulates new cell growth where such outer layers have been dissolved.

The acid can however irritate tissues, it can cause diarrhoea and bleedings in the digestive tract when used orally. The amounts needed to give sufficient theraputic effects when it is admistered orally is often so great that the side effects occur in an unacceptable dgeree, or the amounts needed are not practical. Therefore most medical application of salicylic acid are topical.

However, by topic application the therapeutic effects can be achieved without unacceptable irritation, or the irritation itself can be used in a theraputic way. A side effect sometimes ocuring when the substance is used topically is hyperpigmentation.


Historic use of salicylic acid

The Greeks used a bitter powder extracted from willow bark containing salicylic asid to reduce fever and ease pain and ache, and this use is documented by the Greek physician Hippocrates. This use is also documented in ancient Sumerian, Lebanonic and Assyrian texts. The Cherokee and other Native Americans used an infusion of the bark for fever and other medicinal purposes for centuries. The inner bark and was historically used as a pain reliever also in England.

The active extract of the bark, called salicin, after the Latin name for the white willow (Salix alba), was isolated in crystalline form in 1828 by Henri Leroux, a French pharmacist, and Raffaele Piria, an Italian chemist.This substance containes mostly derivates of salicylic aid. Piria was able to convert the substance into a sugar and a second component, which on oxidation becomes free salicylic acid.

Salicylic acid was also isolated from the herb meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria, formerly classified as Spiraea ulmaria) by German researchers in 1839.

Salicylic acid was for a long time a standard remedy for fever, pain and inflamation, but was eventually discontinued for oral use when the derivative acetyl salicylic acid was invented that gives these effects in a strong degree and in doses that usually do not give intollerable side effects.


Modern uses of salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is used as a component of remedies to treat also other skin diseases that produce hard deposits in or on the skin, like psoriasis, calluses, corns, keratosis pilaris, and warts. The effect or loosening keratine and fatty leyers is ulso utilized in many products against dandruff.

In modern medicine, salicylic acid and its derivatives are used as components of some rubefacient products. Methyl salicylate is used as a liniment to soothe joint and muscle pain. Choline salicylate is used topically to relieve the pain of aphthous ulcers.

Bismuth subsalicylate, a salt of bismuth and salicyclic acid, is the active ingredient in stomach relief aids such as Pepto-Bismol. Bismuth subsalicylate helps control diarrhea, nausea, heartburn, and gas. It is also a very mild antibiotic.

Aspirin has been used as medicine for more than 100 years. The active substance, known already in antiquity, from the bark of piletreet was isolated to its crystalline form in 1828 by Henri Leroux. Chemicals were also later extracted from meadowsweet by German researchers in 1839
