    • Flexible and Conformable allowing easy application around the toe.
    • The long strip prevents plaster from slipping during the wearing time.
    Mode of action of salicylic acid

    Upon contact with skin, moisture aids release of salicylic acid from the rubbery matrix. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid. Its Keratolytic effect increases the cell-shedding rate of the epidermis. Salicylic acid removes corns by loosening the skin and breaking up the skin cells that form the corn. This makes the corns considerably softer and easier to be removed with a file. This results in less friction and skin irritation.
