AZELAIC ACID

WHY ADD AZELAIC ACID TO YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE?

A true multitasking skincare ingredient, azelaic acid is a naturally-derived molecule that has been found to have antioxidant and other beneficial properties. Azelaic acid can help improve the appearance of discoloration, skin clarity, and other skin imperfections.

WHAT IS AZELAIC ACID?

Azelaic acid is a natural dicarboxylic acid derived from grains such as wheat, barley, and rye¹ (although the azelaic acid found in skincare products is generally synthesized in a lab). Though not an alpha- or beta-hydroxy acid, azelaic acid can provide gentle exfoliation to stimulate cell turnover,² and this ingredient offers additional skin benefits that AHAs and BHAs do not.
