Relatively safe product

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Hawthorn is a plant product with minimal side effects, not as such it doesn't contain salicylic acid. It depends on manufacturing company. You need to check on pack for contents of hawthorn. Which provides details on ingredients of pack.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

Regards
