Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate


Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate is a water-soluble derivative of azelaic acid, a naturally occurring acid found in grains such as barley, wheat, and rye. This ingredient has been shown to have a variety of beneficial effects on the skin.

Firstly, Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate has been shown to help regulate sebum production, making it an effective treatment for oily and acne-prone skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne.

Secondly, Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate has been shown to have brightening and pigmentation-reducing effects on the skin. It inhibits the production of melanin, which is responsible for hyperpigmentation and dark spots.

Finally, Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate has been shown to have moisturizing properties that can help improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin.

One of the unique aspects of Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate is that it is gentle and non-irritating to the skin, even at high concentrations. This makes it a suitable ingredient for those with sensitive skin.

Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate can also be combined with other skincare ingredients to enhance its effects. For example, it is often used in combination with niacinamide to enhance its brightening effects on the skin. It can also be combined with glycolic acid to enhance its exfoliating properties and improve skin texture.

Overall, Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate is a unique and effective ingredient that can help regulate sebum production, brighten the skin, and improve its overall texture and appearance.

How to use

How to Use Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate Serum in Professional Treatments:

  1. Begin by thoroughly cleansing your client's face with a gentle facial cleanser and patting it dry.

  2. Examine your client's skin to determine if Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate Serum is an appropriate treatment option. This serum best suits clients with hyperpigmentation, acne-prone skin, and uneven skin tone.

  3. Apply a small amount of the serum to a clean cotton pad and gently wipe it over the client's face, neck, and décolleté. Avoid the eye area.

  4. Depending on your client's skin type and condition, you may choose to leave the serum on for 1-3 minutes before neutralizing it with a pH-balancing toner or water.

  5. If the client's skin tolerates the serum, you may leave it on for a longer period, up to 10 minutes.

  6. Rinse the client's skin thoroughly with cool water to remove any remaining product.

  7. Apply a soothing and hydrating serum or mask to the client's skin to help calm and nourish it after the treatment.

  8. Instruct your client to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen for at least 24 hours after the treatment to prevent UV damage.


  • As with any professional treatment, obtaining a complete medical history from your client and performing a skin analysis to determine the best course of treatment is influential.

  • Always perform a patch test before using the serum on your client's face. Apply a small amount to a sensitive skin area, such as behind the ear, and wait 24 hours to check for any signs of irritation or allergic reaction.

  • Incorporate Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate Serum into a comprehensive skincare regimen that includes regular exfoliation, moisturizing, and sun protection.
