Azelaic acid is an "it" skin care ingredient, generating editorials from Harper's Bazaar and millions of views on Tik Tok. This not so secret weapon works deep within pores to gently exfoliate skin and remove dead cells to improve lackluster appearance.
It also features anti-bacterial properties that help fight acne-causing bacteria to keep breakouts at bay. Azelaic acid can also fade acne scars and some other forms of hyperpigmentation by reducing melanin production in hyperactive areas.
In this video briefing, Global Cosmetic Industry magazine checks in with Acme-Hardesty's Caren Dres-Hajeski to discuss the science and applications of this unique ingredient.
Acme-Hardesty's Matrilox CA001M azelaic acid has been shown to increase cell turnover, making it an excellent anti-aging ingredient. And, because it is derived from sunflower oil, the ingredient features a purity of 99% and low environmental impact.
