Azelaic Purifying & Brightening Cream with Alpha Arbutin
Azelaic Acid – 10% – Is a pharmaceutical anti-acne agent that provides antibacterial and comedolytic effects. It is effective against several skin conditions, from mild to moderate acne. It helps to stop the growth of skin bacteria that causes acne; as a result, it keeps the skin pores clean. Azelaic acid is also a reversible inhibitor of tyrosinase, delivering brightening effects to the surface.
Niacinamide – 5% – This is an active form of Vitamin B3 that offers several benefits for photodamaged skin and improved hydration. Niacinamide is effective in improving skin texture and improving the appearance of hyperpigmentation and red blotchiness. It stimulates collagen synthesis and production of ceramides, a lipid compound that contributes to the functional and structural integrity of the skin barrier.
Alpha Arbutin – Ten times more powerful than standardized arbutin and is derived from bearberry. It is an alternative to hydroquinone and Kojic acid for brightening pigmentation. It inhibits the body’s production of tyrosinase and suppresses unwanted pigmentation rather than killing pigment-producing cells.
