Azelaic Acid is produced naturally by yeast that lives on normal skin. It brightens the skin tone while visibly improving the evenness of skin texture and reducing the look of blemishes. It is a multi-functional support ingredient for all skin types and also acts as an effective antioxidant. This formula offers a very high 10% concentration of high-purity Azelaic Acid in a lightweight cream-gel system.
• How does Azelaic Acid work to treat Acne?
: Azelaic Acid is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-keratinizing (meaning it prevents a build-up of dead skin, which could in turn prevent clogged pores that cause breakouts). Azeliac Acid decreases the free fatty acid content in skin making it an inhospitable environment for bacterial and fungal overgrowth. This also means it’s an effective treatment for “fungal acne,” or the skin conditions associated with malassezia like seborrheic dermatitis, pityrosporum folliculitis, dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis.
Azelaic Acid is a highly effective acne treatment comparable to Benzoyl Peroxide, Tretinoin, and even Accutane. It also treats rosacea, melasma, and hyperpigmentation.
It has antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-keratinizing properties. It prevents dead skin build up, unclogs pores, reduces redness, and most importantly does all this gently without major side effects! Azeliac Acid may also be effective for treating hair loss. • How to use? : Apply to face AM and/or PM to improve visible brightness and the appearance of skin texture. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Use sun protection during the day.
