Azelaic acid is a naturally-occurring acid found in grains such as barley, wheat, and rye. For oily and acne/breakout-prone skin.
Azelaic acid has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it effective in the treatment of skin conditions like acne and rosacea. The acid can prevent future breakouts and clean acne-causing bacteria from your pores. Azelaic acid is also a tyrosinase inhibitor, meaning it can prevent hyperpigmentation, because it reduces excess melanin production (you know the drill, every time one has a pimple scar, for example, more melanin than usual is released, and a pigmentation mark is formed).
Clears pores of bacteria that may be causing irritation and/or breakouts
Reduces inflammation so acne becomes less irritated, less red and less visible
Gently encourages cell turnover so your skin heals more quickly and scarring is minimised
Safe during pregnancy & breastfeeding
