Garden of Wisdom Azelaic Acid PAD comes in silky-smooth gel texture and helps to calm down inflamed skin and improve appearance of an uneven skin tone, as well as being a gentle yet highly effective treatment for the treatment of blemishes. Shabir explains how Azelaic Acid works in his article about ‘How To Fade Acne Scars’.
Azelaic Acid is a powerful antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, skin-friendly acid suitable for all skin types. It helps calm inflammatory skin concerns and also helps improve an uneven skin tone.
Unlike comparable suspensions or serums, Garden of Wisdom’s formula contains 12% Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate (PAD) – a water-soluble Azelaic Acid derivative with a silky-smooth texture and super-hydrating properties.
It helps to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the skin follicles and removes dead skin cells, making it a highly effective way for the prevention of spots. Azelaic Acid also can brighten and lighten an uneven skin tone and improve the appearance of age spots and freckles.
Azelaic Acid (PAD) Key Benefits:
- Calms inflammatory-prone skin

- Brightens skin

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.
