What Is Azelaic Acid?
Dicarboxylic acid (otherwise known as azelaic acid) works like a gentle leave-on exfoliant. Sourced mainly from barley, it does not exfoliate as effectively as AHAs/BHAs or salicylic acid and can be used in conjunction with these. Although it works as a mild exfoliator, its key powers lie in successfully treating varying skin concerns such as: blackheads, enlarged pores, redness, scarring, uneven and aging skin.
Suitable for all skin types, this wonder ingredient is proven to produce remarkable results.
