Learn about AZELAIC ACID
Azelaic acid is a naturally occurring acid derived from grains like barley and wheat. In the context of acne, azelaic acid helps to reduces the formation of blackheads and whiteheads and promotes clearer skin. It manages rosacea by calming redness and decreasing the formation of inflammatory lesions. It also helps to even out skin tone and improve the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Azelaic acid comes in varying concentrations. It is considered a prescription grade ingredient in higher concentrations of 15% and above.
Azelaic acid exhibits antibacterial properties that target the bacteria responsible for acne breakouts. It also helps to regulate the turnover of skin cells, preventing the build up of dead skin cells that can contribute to the development of pustules and papules. It's ability to inhibit melanin production makes azelaic acid a valuable option for treating dark marks and hyperpigmentation. Azelaic acid also inhibits the production of inflammatory mediators, which play a role in the development of rosacea symptoms. It is considered safe to use in pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Azelaic acid is often recommended for those with mild to moderate acne. It is particularly effective against comedonal acne - blackheads and whiteheads.
It is very effective in managing redness and inflammation associated with rosacea.
