Questions and Answers about SalSearch
The salicylate search engine (SalSearch) currently values only terms that are listed in the ingredient lists of cosmetics and are defined by the so-called INCI list. The reason for this is that the INCI list contains a manageable number of defined terms in English. The ingredients of drugs are often provided with individual additives, so that an automatic analysis is difficult.
