Salicylic acid (frae Laitin salix, willow tree, frae the bark o which the substance uised tae be obtained) is a monohydroxybenzoic acid, a teep o phenolic acid an a beta hydroxy acid. It haes the formula C7H6O3. This colourless crystalline organic acid is widely uised in organic synthesis an functions as a plant hormone. It is derived frae the metabolism o salicin. In addeetion tae bein an important active metabolite o aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), which acts in pairt as a prodrug tae salicylic acid, it is probably best kent for its uise as a key ingredient in topical anti-acne products. The sauts an esters o salicylic acid are kent as salicylates.
