In Nigeria, Geek & Gorgeous 101 aPAD Blemish and Pigmentation Serum 30 ml
Azelaic acid is a 3-in-1 clinically proven active that helps reduce blemishes, pigmentation and redness. This formula uses a new-generation water-soluble form called Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD) that has similar properties to Azelaic acid but enables a super-light, oil-free texture. The two strong points of PAD are to even the skin tone and to control excessive oiliness.
A water-light Azelaic acid derivative (Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate, or PAD) formula to even the skin tone, normalize oil production and calm the skin.
5.5-6.5 pH, 20% Azeclair (Azelaic Form), + Allantoin Glycerin
In our formula we are using 20% Azeclair, a solution containing 6% pure Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD). While 6% might not sound like a high number, when it comes to PAD, it is an outstanding amount. The molecule is effective already and typically used at 1-3%. Studies done by the ingredient’s manufacturer show that 3% PAD (or 10% Azeclair) is an effective amount in normalizing oil production and evening the skin tone, while a study published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment used 5% PAD for the management of rosacea.
Geek tip: Based on our experience, those who are sensitive to niacinamide tend to find aPAD an especially helpful addition to their skincare routine.
