Exfoliation: Salicylic acid works by loosening and breaking apart desmosomes (attachments between cells in the outer layers of the skin). This action encourages exfoliation of dead and damaged skin and unclogging of pores.
Blackheads and Whiteheads: Salicylic acid is lipophilic, which means it can penetrate oily skin and clogged pores, resulting in deep cleaning.
Acne and Inflammation: Salicylic acid can reduce sebum secretion, which is another way it can help reduce acne. Salicylic acid reduces inflammation by modulating COX2 gene expression to decrease the formation of pro-inflammatory
