What is the difference between the two Azelaic Acids by GOW?
Azelaic 10% contains pure azelaic acid at a concentration of 10% and this is gritty even after milling the powder finely whilst the other one is simply called Azelaic Acid and contains a derivative called PAD which is super silky and ultra hydrating at a different price point. Both products achieve the same end result albeit slightly differently.
