Overview

Antibacterial and keratolytic cosmetic active.

This Black Willow Bark extract concentrated in salicylic acid is a powerful ally to incorporate into your preparations for oily, dull or acne-prone skin. Purifying and keratolytic, it stimulates skin renewal, smoothes imperfections and fights blackheads, ingrown hairs and dandruff. It also improves the preservation of aqueous products and can be used to boost the effectiveness of preservatives. A much sought after active ingredient that we offer you in vegetable origin, better tolerated than synthetic salicylic acid.

Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid well known in cosmetics for its powerful keratolytic action and its antibacterial effects, making it an asset of choice for the care of skins with imperfections , but also dull or irregular skin (spots, wrinkles …) because of its intense regenerating effect . The Salix nigra or Black Willow is a tree 13 meters high that grows in North America. Its dark brown and streaked bark contains tannins, molecules of the polyphenol family , whose antioxidant power is well-known. It is also particularly rich in salicyline , a natural derivative of salicylic acid. Salicyline gradually releases salicylic acid on the skin and allows you to take advantage of its powerful properties without having its irritating effects .

Salicyline, known for its astringent and purifying properties , helps regulate oily skin and fight against imperfections. It is a soothing and regenerating allowing to repair the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Incorporated into cosmetic treatments, black willow extract helps to smooth and beautify the skin by reducing imperfections and preventing the formation of black spots . Incorporated into cleansing preparations, it cleanses the skin deeply , making it more beautiful and healthier.

It is also an asset of choice for anti-dandruff shampoos , or for ingrown anti-hairs .
