Some things in the world just seem to have everything going for them. Azelaic Acid is one of those things. You probably don't know that there is Azelaic Acid on your skin as you are reading this post even if you don't use treatments containing this amazing ingredient, because Azelaic Acid is produced naturally by yeast that lives on healthy skin. Found also in grains, Azelaic Acid brightens the skin tone while visibly improving the evenness of skin texture and reducing the look of blemishes. It is a multi-functional support ingredient for all skin types and also acts as an effective antioxidant. And while most acids cause redness, Azelaic Acid is also shown to reduce the looks of redness and of rosacea. The Ordinary offers Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% which offers a high-purity grade of this amazing ingredient in a lightweight cream-gel system suitable for all skin types. (PS1 As this formula is a suspension to offer optimal stability, very small amounts must be used and ideally at bedtime. PS2 We cannot ship Azelaic Acid to some markets due to local regulatory limbos; we can instead ship you a baseball bat so you can beat up local authorities for being a few generations behind the rest of the world. We have 5 baseball bats available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in one, please DM us.) 🐒❤️
