Salicylic Acid soluble in triglycerides?
I haven’t worked much with SA, but my understanding is that it requires certain solvents to fully solubilize and prevent recrystallization. Even though it is an oil-soluble molecule, I was under the impression it doesn’t really dissolve well in actual lipids like triglycerides. Am I mistaken?
This is the IL for a product that claims to have 2% Salicylic Acid, and I see none of the traditional solvents that SA dissolves best in. Is it possible to get that much SA solubilized in plant lipids? Maybe under certain conditions (heat, etc)? Thanks for the help!
(I tried searching but couldn’t find the answer)
