Salicylic Acid (SA) is a type of chemical exfoliant also known as beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), which aids in the removal of dead skin cells from the skin's surface. SA works to gently eliminate flaky skin through exfoliation. Additionally, it assists in balancing oil levels on the scalp. It is effective in the treatment of dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis. Salicylic acid is a widely used active ingredient in many skincare and over-the-counter products. Also, functioning as an anti-inflammatory and peeling agent, SA can soothe sensitive skin, reduce redness, and serve as an anti-inflammatory agent for acne and other blemishes.
