DERModality™´s Salicylic Acid 20% formula is extracted from the willow bark. Our 20% Salicylic acid formula is lipid-soluble in contrast to water-soluble AHA´s. Because of this, our 20% SA formula easily penetrates into the lipid plug in a congested follicle.
SA is considered both keratolytic and antimicrobial. Studies show that SA is more effective than glycolic, resulting in decreased comedones, quicker exfoliation and accelerated improvement of the skin without excessive irritation.
