What is the main affect of salicylic acid products?

Salicylic acid is used to unclog the sebacous glands pores. Salicylic acid is actually a “natural” product derived from plants like willow bark. It has a light peel effect on the skin, sloughing away dead skin cells that clog pores. It won’t kill acne bacteria but when used in the common 2% strength it is less irritation than benzoyl peroxide.
