The science

Azelaic acid is a powerful antioxidant found in nature. It’s easily absorbed into the skin, and helps reduce the appearance of blemishes, fade dark marks and boost brightness. We’ve combined it with hydrating Glycerin and Squalane to give your skin extra nourishment and help protect its natural barrier.

This cream is still gentle for all skin types and doesn’t react with other active ingredients in your routine.


Full ingredients:

Aqua, Azelaic Acid, Propanediol, Squalane, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-75 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Cetyl Alcohol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Sodium Hydroxide, Ceramide NP, Ceramide AP, Phytosphingosine, Cholesterol, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Ceramide EOP.

How to use

Apply 1-2 pumps morning and evening on clean, dry skin. Wait five minutes before following up with moisturiser if needed and SPF in the morning. You can use this cream alongside your personalized formula or other actives in your routine.

My skincare essentials for combination skin


Step 1: Cleanse

“Every evening, I begin my skincare routine by cleaning my face with a cleanser to wash away any makeup, SPF and grease off my face.”

Step 2: Prescription

“To tackle some fine lines, I apply my personalized formula before I use any other product.”

Step 3: Treat

“Especially during the colder months, my skin tends to be very dry. The serum is perfect to add a little bit of extra hydration to my skin!”

Step 4: Moisturize

“Lastly, I add a moisturizer to lock in the hydration. In warmer months, I tend to pick a gel moisturizer, as I like the lightweight texture.”

Step 5: Protect

“In the morning, I always apply an SPF to protect my skin against any sun damage, and to help prevent any future wrinkles.”

“I recommend azelaic acid because it can reduce the appearance of breakouts, and fade areas of pigmentation, without irritation. This is formulated with glycerin and squalane to support the skin barrier.”
