What makes this product unique?

Azeclair (Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate, or PAD), a glycinated derivative of azelaic acid, offers all the benefits of azelaic acid, primarily acne reduction via oil control, skin clarification and anti-inflammation.

Environmental aggressors like UV & air pollutants may induce oxidative response in human skin. These aggressors can form peroxidated squalene, which in turn induces upregulation of inflammatory cytokines. PAD successfully downregulates the production of IL-6 and IL-8 (cytokine that regulates the immune and inflammatory response) to reduce inflammatory responses. PAD also imparts inhibitory effects on 5-α reductase activity and thus reducing sebum production, giving an oil-free skin.

This product also contains Propolis Extract. At least 300 active compounds have been identified in Propolis, like, caffeic, ferulic, p-coumaric, benzoic acid, and cinnamic acid. Its antiseptic properties make it a preferred ingredient for treatment of various skin infections, including fungal infections. Presence of flavonoids (pinocembrin and pinobanksin), phenolic acids (caffeic acid) and terpenes, give Propolis antiseptic & anti-fungal properties, making it very suitable for fungal infections and reduction of acne vulgaris.

For normal sebum production in our body, MC5R, a type of protein, is necessary. Disruption of MC5R results in decrease in sebum production. In an in-vitro study, Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract has been shown to reduce MC5R levels by 36.6%, resulting in reduction in sebocytes differentiation and sebaceous lipid levels, hence reducing skin sebum.
