The new-generation component Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD) is made by reacting the chloride of naturally occurring Azelaic Acid with two molecules of Glycine and KOH. Amongst it’s many benefits, PAD possesses extra moisturising benefits obtained from Glycine. 

Unlike it’s counterpart naturally derived Azelaic Acid, PAD is effective in much smaller concentrations and, therefore, does not irritate the skin. 

Soothes skin inflammation & redness caused by Rosacea which result in patches, spider veins, itchiness & discomfort. 

Because PAD is so effective in soothing inflammation & redness, it also helps in calming down the acne lesions and promotes healing of the skin. Simultaneously, it reduces the risks of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Normalises Sebum Production. Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate can also help normalise and reduce excessive oil production in the skin. This can assist with skin problems brought on by excess sebum such as the dreaded breakouts and blocked pores. 

Helps in fighting Acne & prevents scarring. By calming inflammation, swelling, and redness, its anti-inflammatory characteristics help to reduce the overall appearance of existing acne. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that PAD normalises keratinization, the process by which the uppermost layers of the dermis lose old cells and regenerate new ones. This lessens the possibility of scarring while promoting skin healing. Azelaic acid also prevents tyrosinase from being produced, which lessens the likelihood that the skin will become pigmented and may scar.

Aids in future break-out prevention & reduces the appearance of the pores. Additionally, to all its wonderful benefits, Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate, also has antimicrobial properties, which combined with it’s gentle exfoliation abilities will keep the pores clear that will also look smaller in size.
