HOW TO CHOOSE THE AZELAIC CONCENTRATION
AZELAICA comes in 2 versions: with 6% or 10% of Azelaic Acid.
For most users, we recommend the 6% version. This formulation delivers excellent results with virtually no unwanted effects. It can be used daily and will effectively target your skin concerns.
Choose 10% if your skin problems are more severe or if you’ve already used a 10% azelaic product and you feel it works better for you. Keep in mind that percentages are not everything: what you care about is results, not the number on the bottle. Both our formulations are designed for effect. However, with certain skin conditions, a higher percentage of Azelaic Acid may deliver better or faster results.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The immediate effect is a smoother, hydrated skin surface. If you’re experiencing redness (as results of acne, spots or skin reactions), AZELAICA can help calm down your skin.
After a couple of days or weeks, azelaic acid should help with skin problems due to its antimicrobial effect. If you’re fighting with acne or spots, you know nothing happens overnight – so give AZELAICA time to work.
There’s a good chance your pores will be less visible as AZELAICA helps prevent impurities buildup in your pores.
Over a longer term (weeks), your skin’s defenses (skin barrier) will improve, which is crucial in maintaining healthy skin with fewer problems. The Triactive Complex (Cica, Niacinamide and Ceramides) works together to boost these defensive capabilites of your skin.
How to Use
Use daily. Can be used in your evening or morning routine or both. AZELAICA is formulated as a cream, so it goes near the end of your routine – over your serums, boosters or other hydrating products.
Slight tingling, prickling or redness at the start of using AZELAICA is normal – it should be minor and disappear soon after. A burning sensation is not ok and may be a sign that azelaic acid isn’t right for your skin. If you’re unsure, get in touch and we’ll figure it out together.
Avoid contact with eyes. Store at room temperature (below 25C).
Azelaic Acid is very well tolerated by the skin so chances of unwanted side effects are minimal. It is still best to avoid combining strong actives in higher concentrations (for example, retinoids) with Azelaic Acid, to minimize the chances of unnecessary irritations. If you’re using any such actives, consider adjusting your routines so not everything is on your skin at the same time.
This dicarboxylic acid is present in rye, barley and wheat, but is lab-made for our formulation. That way the highest purity (>99%) is achieved. Azelaic Acid is one of the rising-star actives in modern skincare. When applied topically, it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties through antioxidant activity.
Niacinamide helps strengthen and support your skin barrier. It is a great ingredient for compromised skin with frequent reactions (redness, flakiness, breakouts). Helps with hyperpigmentation, improves skin texture and is a natural moisturizing factor.
A precious ingredient is a natural skin moisturizer! It creates a protective lipid layer to protect skin barrier.
Ceramides compose the skin’s natural protective layer and form an effective barrier against moisture loss (TEWL). It’s a well-known antiage ingredient. Ceramides have structures identical to those found in the human skin.
CICA – Centella Asiatica
Centella Asiatica (also Gotu Kola or Cica, as it’s commonly known) is an amazing ingredient that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in your skin. It has firming, regenerative properties and works as an anti-irritant that helps sooth skin inflammations.
