Salicure ointment is a unique combination of Salicylic Acid and Urea. Urea is a nitrogen material that can moisturises chapped and dry skin. It loosens dead skin and therefore improves skin’s ability to form newer and healthier skin. Salicylic acid relieves itching, redness, controls flaking and scaling and loosens existing scales. The 17 percent Salicylic Acid ointment is particularly used to treat cutaneous warts. It is infused with a distinctive property of exfoliating and promotes the shedding of dead cells, which provides the skin with soft and supple texture. Salicure ointment also boasts of its anti- inflammatory property and gives emollient effect to skin.
