Among its fellow AHAs, Mandelic acid has one of the largest molecular sizes, allowing it to more moderately and uniformly absorb into the skin. As a result, Mandelic acid is less likely to cause irritation, making it suitable even for those with sensitive skin. It’s also suitable for darker skin complexions because it isn't melanotoxic.
Salicylic acid is an organic beta hydroxy acid. As such, it is oil soluble and is therefore well-known for reducing acne by exfoliating the skin and keeping pores clear. It does this by breaking down the bonds between dead skin cells so that they can release from clogged pore more easily, and breaking down oils, such as sebum. Salicylic acid also decreases the skin's sebum production, leading to fewer breakouts.
