What is Azelaic Acid?
Azelaic Acid is a powerhouse new ingredient that is naturally-derived, safe, and EFFECTIVE!
Azelaic acid is a dicarboxylic acid that is naturally occurring acid which is synthesized by yeast, and is largely derived from grains like barley, wheat, or rye. (It is still considered gluten-free because it is not believed to absorb through the skin in quantities which could elicit a gluten reaction).
In addition to anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s has potent exfoliating properties for the skin and pores, as well as the ability to reduce comedones (“blackheads/whiteheads”). It can do a lot, and as we mentioned it is a natural acid! This means it is also safe to use in pregnancy!
