Azelaic Acid is commonly found in cosmetic formulations to help the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Azelaic Acid is a gentle exfoliator commonly used to help with uneven skin tone and is found in specialty products for hyperpigmentation. While it can exfoliate the skin, it doesn’t exfoliate the same way or with the same level of effectiveness as ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or salicylic acid (BHA). Azelaic Acid offers additional benefits that AHA and BHA ingredients don’t provide when it comes to evening skin tone. This product is stable and most effective at a pH greater than 4.5.
