BHA does it work?

I posted a similar question about clogged pores but I hear the BHA or Saliyoic acid(butchered the spelling sorry) is good for actually dissolving the congested pore or whitehead. Is this true? Can BHA actually dissolve it without the whitehead surfacing? If so then why don't they put it in taz to speed the process along?

Thanks,

Rachel

Salicylic acid can be helpful for mild to moderate acne. It is a common ingredient in anti-blemish products but is not added to products which work in a diferent way eg retinoids because this would increase irritation of the skin.
