⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣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

Skin Conditions To Use Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate For

Dermatologists have long known about the usage of azelaic acid (in its free-acid form), which they consider a topical medication. This substance has been discovered to be effective as a skin lightener and in the treatment of seborrheic skin. However, it's most commonly used to treat the following skin issues:
1. Sensitive skin: Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate has been shown to soothe sensitive skin. It’s also very mild on the skin and can be effectively used by people with sensitive skin.
2. Uneven skin tone: Although it’s not researched enough, PAD has shown improvements with acne, acne spots, and to some degree hyperpigmentation.
3. Oily and acne-prone skin: PAD has the ability to reduce excess oil in the skin. This can help with skin problems caused by excessive sebum production, such as clogged pores, breakouts, and so on, preventing acne, whiteheads and blackheads to a certain degree.
4. Dry skin: PAD is a water-soluble component created by combining azelaic acid and glycine. Because of the glycine, it has a hydrating/moisturizing action, which helps to improve dry skin.

How does it work on the skin?
- regulates the level of sebum production in the skin
- helps to lighten and even out the skin tone
- reduces acne and clears out acne
- soothes reduces and inflammation
- moisturizes the skin and increases its elasticity
