Garden of Wisdom Azelaic Acid 10% Serum helps combat acne, rosacea, inflammation and hyperpigmentation.
Azelaic acid is a natural substance with antibacterial properties produced by yeast which live on the surface of skin. When applied topically, Azelaic acid helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the follicles and additionally removes dead skin cells which make it a great treatment for mild to moderate acne.

Azelaic acid’s gentle resurfacing properties helps to smooth out uneven skin texture and this coupled with its anti-inflammatory properties helps to calm and soothe skin prone to rosacea.
