Salicylic Acid (SA) Overview:
Salicylic Acid (SA) functions as, just like Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid (ASA)) in mammals, an ‘effective therapeutic agent’ for plants. SA is the natural chemical found in White willow (Salix alba), famous for being beneficial to other plants. Salicylic acid (SA) is a phenolic phytohormone and is found in plants with roles in plant growth and development, photosynthesis, transpiration, ion uptake and transport. SA also induces specific changes in leaf anatomy and chloroplast structure. SA is involved in endogenous signaling, mediating in plant defense against pathogens. It plays a crucial role in the regulation of physiological and biochemical processes during the entire lifespan of the plant. It is involved in endogenous signaling, mediating in plant defense against pathogens by inducing the production of pathogenesis-related proteins.

We work extra hard to provide you with precise specifications and broad usage data. New PPM tables are generated for each batch of each chem. This is important because the weight per (scoop) volume and and exact purity differs between every batch. All chemicals have the scoop weight & purity printed on the labels. The printed scoop weight is based on the white scoop size (1/32 tsp.). As an exclusive service, buyers may request custom range PPM tables. Due to the lengths and ongoing growth of the chem guide's, printed instructions aren't generally included.

INCLUDED IN EVERY PGR ORDER: One mini white measure scooping spoon and one mini chemical mixing spatula.

CURRENT PGR SPECIALS: -U.S. PGR orders over $25 ship free via First Class by entering coupon code "PGR", or if you pay the standard shipping it will ship via Priority Mail. -All PGR orders include free chem sample(s).

Unlock Full Throttle Growth Boosting!
All plants regulate their growth, development, and behavior by Plant Growth Regulator (PGR) Hormones, which in most cases move through the plant from one part to another. Fertilizer provides fuel for plants to grow, but doesn't force them to do so. Hormonal signaling dictates the the plant to do so, and the fertilizer is like the 'gasoline' fuel (energy) to carry out such signaling.Think of it as fertilizer is the fuel, where hormones are the gas pedal (or brake pedal) of various plant growth characteristics.

By treating plants with PGR's you can not only alter the ways they grow, you can boost their growth at the same time. The reason is because it requires plant energy to synthecize these signaling phytohormone chemicals. This requires energies that during treatment spares the plants from needing to 'waste', meaning more of the energies the plants have access to are spent on the actual growth that the PGR's are signalling the plants to do.

Salicylic Acid Functions (In Plants):
>Activates plant survival responses to Abiotic stressors (such as drought, chilling, heavy metal toxicity, heat, and osmotic stress).
>Activates the genes plants use to produce the chemicals they use in defense of Biotic pathogen stressors.
>Signals Systemic Acquired Resistance (SAR): When a pathogen attacks one part of the plant SA induces resistance in other parts.
>Signals nearby plants into defense by converting salicylic acid into methyl salicylate, its.volatile ester gas form,
>Inhibits auxin/IAA signaling (part of the SA-mediated disease-resistance mechanism).
>Inhibits seed germination.
>Can stimulate root growth. 1

Salicylic Acid Functions (In Humans):
>As an analgesic to ease aches and pains (i.e. Aspirin).
>As an antipyretic to reduce headaches & fevers (i.e. Aspirin).

Salicylic Acid (SA) Commercial Applications:
>In tomatoes foliar applications of SA has positive effects on fruit characteristics, plant growth, chlorophyll content in leaves, early yield and total yield. 1

Dietary Sources of Salicylic Acid:
Unripe fruits and vegetables are natural sources of salicylic acid, particularly blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupes, dates, raisins, kiwi fruits, guavas, apricots, green pepper, olives, tomatoes, radish and chicory; also mushrooms. Some herbs and spices contain quite high amounts, although meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products all have little to no salicylates. Of the legumes, seeds, nuts, and cereals, only almonds, water chestnuts and peanuts have significant amounts.

How To Dissolve & Use Salicylic Acid:

Salicylic Acid  vs. Various Solvents – Dissolve Testing Results Chart:

Another Mass Spectrum exclusive. In this initial release, basic solubility was the main objective. Full solution boils (i.e. 'Microwave Boil Trick'), or overnight soaks weren't generally attempted. Partial dissolve results data was included as more rigorous pursuits may yield you results. "Melt" results were exclusive to Triacontanol. In each case the melted substance reverted to solid form upon cooling, but its seems possible that applying a secondary solvent to the solution in its hot melted state may enable post-cool suspension in the solution thereby enabling plant bioavailability. "Reaction" means the substance bubbled inside the solvent or similar results (molecular breakdown). This was most common with VOC solvents with heat applied. When heating substances keep an eye for reactions in case we didn't notice them. Beyond all that, results may vary depending on substance batch or other variables.

Salicylic Acid (SA) Usage Examples

How To Use Salicylic Acid (SA) To Enhance Seed Germination :
Notice: SA can be used to enhance the germination of certain seed types, but shouldn’t be assumed to be a general purpose seed enhancer (such as is Gibberellic Acid, Potassium Nitrate & Thiourea). This substance has proven to actually hinder the germination of certain species at certain concentrations. However, it’s well documented to help many emerging seedlings to be more vigorous in the face of stressors, both biotic (pathogens, insects) & abiotic (salt, UV, metal toxicity, cold). While it may enhance germination, it’s better to think of it as an emerging-seedling invigorator than a seed germination-enhancer.

How To Use Salicylic Acid (SA) For Common Skin Care:

Salicylic Acid (0.3-6%) is used topically (in the forms of Liquid, Foam, Soap, Gel, Cream, Lotion, Shampoo, Ointment & Cloth Pad) in general skin care as an astringent / antiseptic treatment for the removal of Acne, Blemishes, Dandruff, Psoriasis, Seborrheic Dermatitis or other excessive keratin / hyperkeratotic skin disorders.

Salicylic Acid (17-40%) is used topically (in the forms of Liquids, Ointments & Plasters) in advanced skin care for the removal of corns, calluses and warts.
