the description

Azelaic Acid is a clinically proven 3-in-1 active that helps reduce blemishes, pigmentation and redness. This formula uses a next-generation water-soluble form called Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD) which has similar properties to azelaic acid but allows for an ultra-lightweight, oil-free texture. The two strengths of PAD are to even out the complexion and control excess fat.
5.5-6.5 pH
20% Azeclair (azelaic form) + Allantoin and glycerin

In this formula, 20% Azeclair is used, a solution containing 6% pure Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD). While 6% might not seem like a high number, when it comes to DPA, it is a high %. The molecule is already effective and generally used at 1-3%. Studies performed by the ingredient manufacturer show that 3% PAD (or 10% Azeclair) is an effective amount to normalize oil production and even out skin tone, while a study published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment used 5% PAD for the management of rosacea. .

Geek Tip: In our experience, people sensitive to niacinamide tend to find aPAD to be a particularly useful addition to their skincare routine.
