What is White willow bark extract powder (Salicin)?

White willow bark extract powder (Salicin) is an alcoholic β-glucoside. Salicin acts as an anti-inflammatory agent in the human body. Populus species’ bark and the leaves of willows and poplars, and castoreum also contain Salicin. It is an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic.

Salicin was the historical origin of aspirin. When consumed, the acetalic ether bridge is broken down. The two parts of the molecule, glucose, and salicyl alcohol, are then metabolized separately. By oxidizing the alcohol function, the aromatic part is finally metabolized to salicylic acid. Salicin tastes bitter like quinine. Alkaline cleavage of the glucoside populin produces benzoate and Salicin.


Willow bark could ease aches and pains and reduce fevers. It has long been used in Europe and China for the treatment of these conditions. After the Latin name Salix, the active white willow bark extract, called salicin, was isolated to its crystalline form in 1828 by Henri Leroux and Raffaele Piria. They then succeeded in separating the acid in its pure state. Salicylic acid, like aspirin, is a chemical derivative of salicin.
