Encapsulated salicylic acid — a more glorious form of the OG

Acne sufferers — Encapsulated Salicylic Acid is heaven on earth for you.


Are you dabbling in every supposed anti-acne realm to treat that stubborn zest? 

Ever heard of Salicylic Acid? We’re sure that you must have. But like others, do you also have your apprehensions about using it? We don’t blame you. It’s undoubtedly a buzzing ingredient that paves the way for acne-free, clearer skin but has its share of cons due to its strong nature. 

Whilst the list of hero ingredients to save from the pesky zests always tops with Salicylic acid —  it certainly can be a ‘not so subtle’ product if your skin is too dry, or overly sensitive or if you’ve not used it in moderation — thus causing excessive dryness, burning, and overall irritated skin. 

What if we tell you that we’ll present you with a powerhouse that’s all Salicylic acid  encapsulated within a protective shell to enhance the stability and efficacy but is not as strong? 

Well well, you’re in for a surprise. 

What is Encapsulated Salicylic Acid? 

The Encapsulated version of Salicylic Acid is created via advanced technology. It is composed of tiny beads that contain Salicylic acid in small amounts. The technology ensures sustained time release of Salicylic Acid to the targetted areas in the skin and gentle exfoliation of the skin over time — making it more effective. 

Encapsulated Salicylic Acid  Vs. Salicylic Acid (SA)

Extracted from willow tree bark, Salicylic acid is a chemical exfoliant called beta-hydroxy acid (aka BHA). Salicylic acid is oil-soluble, which makes it a great exfoliator to cut through oil and remove blockages from deep within. 

While SA is used to repair skin issues for ages, the benefits come with major downsides such as dryness and irritation. In addition, its acidic effect on the pH of both formulas and the skin has always been a major concern. It has often dropped the pH down to less than 4, typically irritating the skin. Moreover, SA is non-soluble in itself and requires other ingredients such as alcohol and strong surfactants, that can typically worsen the skin condition. 

Solution? Enters Encapsulated Salicylic Acid. 

The new technology involves encapsulating or delivering salicylic acid in a way that allows for controlled release and targeted delivery of the active ingredient. This is beneficial for individuals who have sensitive skin or are prone to experiencing side effects from using traditional forms of salicylic acid.

By diluting the salicylic acid to a therapeutic concentration and delivering it in a more gentle and controlled manner, the technology helps reduce the risk of irritation and other side effects commonly associated with salicylic acid. Additionally, by promoting gentle exfoliation and skin rejuvenation, encapsulated salicylic acid helps improve the appearance of skin over time, reducing the appearance of imperfections and promoting a healthy, glowing complexion.

What is Salvona’s Encapsulation Technology?

Salvona Offers a unique medication – Salsphere acne relief  (SAR)- which is a one-of-a-kind powerhouse creation brought to treat treating your skin in the most gentle way possible. It’s a comprehensive solution containing multiple actives that address myriad factors to treat and prevent acne. Its encapsulation is unique as it :

  1. Allows encapsulating actives in one single core of the sphere
  2. Protects sensitive ingredients for longer shelf life 
  3. Offers a targetted solution 

How does it work its magic?

The new technology that can make salicylic acid gentler on the skin; can really address your acne, slough away dead skin, and remove excess oil as effectively as the tried and true BHA. Here’s how it delivers what it promises — 

Targetted Delivery system: The encapsulation with SAR centers the primary active around Salicylic acid and combines it with secondary actives. Upon application, it dissolves within the sebum accumulated in the spot to release its content slowly where it’s needed the most.

Long-Term Efficacy: As it is applied, SA penetrates the skin and works its magic to remove the dead skin cells clogging the pores; also allowing for natural oxygen to replace the spot and stop the bacterial growth inside — thus preventing future acne from popping up. 

What are the other benefits of Salvona’s Salsphere Acne Relief?

The supportive secondary actives that construct the core of the sphere double up the functions they perform cohesively. Here are some of them that deserve a round of applause:

1. All-In-One Hero Blend 

SalSphere technology incorporates an optimizing blend of functional ingredients encapsulated as a single unit. Acting as a superhero with all the superpowers, it provides a solution to the many underlying conditions associated with acne ​​such as the overproduction of sebum, inflammation, persistent bacterial colonies, and skin dehydration. 

Functional ingredients such as Benzalkonium Chloride, Green tea extract, Shea butter, Seaweed extract, Palmitic acid, Chamomile extract, and Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), etc. — all together play a major role in rendering their respective antimicrobial/exfoliating/hydrating properties. 

2. Offers Light Hydration 

Serving as a blend of superfoods, it douses your skin with the nutrients and hydration that your skin has been stripped off. It uses natural healing ingredients such as Shea Butter, Palmitic Acid, and Lactic Acid in the encapsulation to keep the skin moist. 

Moreover, it acts as a heavy-duty moisture-retaining agent with its blend of seaweed biopolymers, Green tea, and Chamomile extract — all known for their soothing properties. 

3. Prevents Acne Scars 

This advanced technology not only helps you win the battle against active zits but also offers skincare comrades that help fight acne scars. With the infusion of collagen-boosting peptides and the goodness of Vitamin C, it targets cleaning up the after-effects of acne. 

4. Reduces Excess Sebum Secretion

Oily and greasy skin can be the ultimate breeding ground for pesky acne and a major contributor to zit invasions. While sebum is pivotal for healthy skin, excess oil secretion through the sebaceous glands can also result in blocked pores leading to acne and breakouts.SSA technology includes several ingredients such as Biopolymers, Clay, And Zinc — that balance oil regulation by reducing the excess secretion of sebum.

5. Retains a Friendly Skin pH

SSA features a unique slow-release longer lasting encapsulation technology with gentle exfoliation, thus keeping a barrier-friendly pH of 5.5 to deliver powerful clarifying results – without disrupting the skin barrier. Encapsulation ensures making everyday cleansing and moisturizing more desirable. 

How can the Encapsulated version be used in daily skincare routine?

The best way to harness the benefits of this acid is to include it in your everyday regimen as a face cleanse, body wash, and in the form of moisturizer. Start your day with the cleanser that makes for hitting a revolutionary reset button, and bag the moisturizer to offer light hydration the dehydrated acne-prone skin.
