Azelaic Acid

One of the common products used nowadays for treatment of hyper-pigmentation and acne is Azelaic Acid. It is produced by pityrosporum ovale, a yeast that lives on normal skin.

This is normally used in a concentration of 20% in topicals for application to reduce hyper-pigmentation. Azelaic acid can also be combined with AHAs such as glycolic acid for skin color treatment. It also helps treat acne, because it normalizes the skin shedding of follicles and also reduces bacteria p.acnes.

Those who do not normally tolerate hydroquinone as a bleaching agent can use azelaic acid in consultation with their doctor. If after application, any redness or itching or any such other reaction develops, stop use and consult your doctor immediately.
