What is Capryloyl Salicylic Acid?

Capryloyl salicylic acid, commonly known as β-LHA (β-lipohydroxyacid, long-chain aliphatic hydrocarbon-β-hydroxycarboxylic acid), is an active compound developed by foreign countries in recent years and used in cosmetics. β-LHA is a salicylic acid derivative formed by introducing a lipophilic hydrocarbon group on the phenyl ring of salicylic acid, and its lipophilicity is enhanced compared with salicylic acid. It not just keeps the effect of salicylic acid on scrubing aging cutin, yet additionally improves the affinity with skin cells, and penetrates into the follicle much more quickly. It can be made use of as an outside active ingredient in cosmetics to postpone aging and also deal with blackheads.Through a short-term comparative study of 2% β-LHA and cosmetic functional ingredient additives 0.05% all-trans retinoic acid (RA) and 10% glycolic acid (GA), the results show that β-LHA, like RA, has the same effect on photoaging skin Degenerative changes have a clear repairing effect, manifested as the correction of epidermal dysplasia, dyskeratosis and atrophy, the increase of hyaline keratin granules, the thickening of the granular layer, the thinning of the stratum corneum, and the reduction of melanosomes , Skin whitening.

Application of Capryloyl Salicylic Acid

CN201710937443.7 discloses a drug-carrying system of salicylic acid and its preparation method and application, wherein the drug-carrying system of salicylic acid includes the following components by weight percentage: caprylyl salicylic acid 1-5%; liquid lipid 10-30%; solid lipid 5-15%; surfactant 4.5-10%; pentanediol 1-5%; lecithin 0.2-2%; the balance is water. The present invention mixes liquid lipids and solid lipids as raw materials to embed octanoylsalicylic acid, and this drug-carrying system is a drug-carrying system of oil-in-fat-in-water (O/F/W), which has High embedding rate, high drug loading, high stability, low irritation, and good drug release characteristics; the medical aesthetic composition prepared by embedding caprylyl salicylic acid with the drug loading system provided by the present invention , helps brighten skin tone, remove dark spots, freckles, whiten, wrinkle, sterilize and reduce inflammation, remove acne and inhibit the production of melanin.

Preparation of Capryloyl Salicylic Acid

Add 94.6g (0.71mol) of AlCl3 to 236mL of CH2Cl2, stir at 10°C for 0.5h, and slowly add 50.0g (0.31mol) of octanoyl chloride (0.31mol) and 36.0g (0.24mol) of methyl salicylate in 79mL of CH2Cl2 solution dropwise within 2h . After the dropwise reaction was completed at 10°C for 5h, the temperature was raised to 30°C to continue the reaction for 12h. The mixture was poured into 600 mL of ice water containing 40 mL of concentrated hydrochloric acid and stirred, and the layers were separated. The aqueous layer was extracted with CH2Cl2. The organic layers were combined, washed with water, and concentrated to dryness to obtain 60.8 g of off-white solid. Suspend directly into 300mL ethanol without purification, then add 500mL aqueous solution dissolved in 55g NaOH, stir and react at 60°C for 6h, cool to room temperature after reaction, add 115mL concentrated hydrochloric acid while stirring, cool and precipitate a large amount of white precipitate, filter and wash with water 2 to 3 times, recrystallized from dichloromethane, and dried to obtain 44.7 g of off-white crystals, with a yield of 70.5%.
