What does azelaic acid do?

Garden of Wisdom Azelaic Acid is a wonderfully smooth water-gel based product which helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the follicles and additionally removes dead skin cells which makes it extremenly effective in the treatment of mild to moderate acne. Azelaic acid also has the ability to brighten and lighten skin making it useful for hyperpigmentation problems including post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, age spots and freckles.
Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD) is a water-soluble derivative of azelaic acid and conveys many of the same benefits as pure azelaic acid but is silky smooth and also has super hydrating abilities, making it an even more effective product.
