What is Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (pad)?
A new generation ingredient, which is a combination of azelaic acid and glycerin that is water-soluble and works to reduce acne and evens skin tone, even better than azelaic acid
Benefits Of Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate
Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate benefits are a new area of research. Because of its lightening, anti-seborrheic, antimycotic, and anti-acne effects, azelaic acid is being studied in dermatology. However, even when employed at lower doses than in pharmacological applications, its limitations in cosmetic formulations are well established. It has shown benefits in the following:
- Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate has been researched for calming sensitive skin, as well as lowering redness.
- It's been shown to help with uneven skin tone.
- PAD helps with excessive oiliness in the skin and reduces the appearance of redness and irritation associated with sensitive skin.
- The water-soluble component PAD is made from the condensation of azelaic acid and glycine. It has a hydrating/moisturizing effect because of the glycine, which helps to improve skin problems.
- It has also shown noticeable skin-whitening properties.
Why is being water-soluble so important?
Azelaic acid is not soluble in water that makes it difficult to work with and hence usually found in an oil base, which is not great for acne. Potassium azeloyl diglycenate is easily soluble in water and also inherits all of azelaic acid's properties; thus good for acne-prone skin
How does it work on the skin?

- reduces acne and clears out acne
- soothes reduces and inflammation
- moisturizes the skin and increases its elasticity
