Pull double-duty on acne with this multi-tasking formula can be used as a daily cleanser to wash away makeup, excess oil and pore-clogging impurities or left on overnight as a mask for a more intensive treatment that helps clear existing blemishes and prevent future breakouts. Cleanse gently, without stripping skin of moisture thanks to a formula enhanced glycerin to lock in moisture and Azelaic Acid to help fade the look of marks left by past blemishes and target dull, uneven texture.
Azelaic acid is a dicarboxylic acid that occurs naturally in grains and cereals and is well known for its treatment of inflammatory skin conditions including acne and rosacea. Azelaic acid has shown to be effective against both inflammatory acne and comedonal acne due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and comedolytic (comedone clearing) properties. [1,2]
Acne is formed when the pilosebaceous unit, PSD (made up of a sebaceous gland and hair follicle), becomes blocked by keratinocytes, new cells, that have been triggered by hormones to generate. These cells form a plug which traps the sebum production, hair growth, and keratinocyte replication happening below. Comedonal acne, including blackheads and whiteheads, is the type of acne that forms when the pores become blocked while more inflammatory types result when bacteria grows and thrives in the mixture of cells and sebum causing inflammation. [3,4]
Glycerin, also called glycerol, is naturally occurring in the skin and has hydrating and protective functions. When applied to the skin, glycerin promotes epidermal barrier repair and elasticity, hydration, and protection from irritation, among other benefits. [1,2]
Azelaic acid works as an antibacterial by inhibiting the protein synthesis, and thereby the growth of P. acnes, a major contributor to the formation of acne within the sebaceous gland. [5,6]
As glycerin is a powerful humectant, it can help skin retain moisture and balance, while counteracting the drying, skin-irritating effects of certain anti-acne ingredients such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
