Curcylic 40

Salicylic Acid has significant benefits for oily and acne prone skin. It has the ability to normalise sebum production, decongest blocked pores, and as a chemical peel has significant exfoliation benefits.

The main ‘issue’ is that it is not soluble in water and so quite difficult to incorporate into water based skin skincare products. Various agents can be used to solubilise salicylic acid so that it can be incorporated into certain water based products but having to use additional agents and processes is not ideal. And, to be honest, solubilisation of salicylic is not foolproof

We are pleased to offer a completely water soluble version of salicylic acid that avoids all the above issues.

This salicylic variant can be easily added to toners, cleansers, creams, lotions and serums.

Key Benefits:
Salicylic acid stays completely free in water
Water Soluble – dilutes clear
No precipitation of Salicylic Acid
No crystallization

INCI: Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine & Salicylic acid
Usage rate 2% to 5%
Add at cool down for hot process formulations. Otherwise add as is to cold process formulations,
Ensure pH is between pH3 and ph8
Form: Liquid

Composition: 60% Cocamidopropyl Dimethylamine. 40% Salicylic Acid. For a 2% concentration of salicylic acid in your formulation use 5% of Curcylic 40

Cautions: Do not combine with alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic, mandelic, lactic acid etc) as the presence of AHAs will cause the salicylic acid to crystallise.

    Fabulous stuff. I have not been able to tolerate Salicylic acid either in my own or store purchased formulations but this version is fantastic. I made a luxurious moisturising lotion and put this in at 2% SLA. I cannot believe how much my skin has improved in a few days with absolutely no sensitivity.

      Thank you Jane. I’m very pleased that the product has worked out so well for you.

    Further to my first review it’s a year on and I’m still using my 2% SLA cream. I have seen major improvements. My skin is now smooth, clear and pores are much less prone to clogging. I have now very few lines and it’s much more even toned. My skin now looks airbrushed.
    Vantage, the makers of Curcylic 40 claim that salicylic acid has been shown in scientific studies to improve skin thickness, barrier function and even collagen production. Based on my own experience I don’t disagree with this. Having struggled with breakouts and generally awful skin from the age of 12 (I’m now 53) I’m extremely pleased.
