Who does not know Ordinary? Ordinary know it all. I will not stop in the 10500 time to write about the brand, so many things written that I can’t add anything new.
My post will be dedicated to the hero, which few admires. What’s there to admire, not a single post! I will try to restore justice — in front of you Ordinary Azelaic Acid 10% Suspension.
Start with the answer to the question: For whom is this post? If you don’t have hormonal acne (those that appear during PMS or during menstruation) — I congratulate you can close this post 🙂 the Rest — give me a hug.
Azelaic acid has never been a popular product in European countries is still sold by prescription (Skinoren, for example). But in the last couple of years began to appear on store shelves (yet the main competitor in Ordinary is Paula’s Choice 10% Azelaic Acid and among the professional cosmetics is an Israeli Gigi Bioplasma 15% Azelaic Acid). I had a tube of Paula, I have not noticed a difference in use, and the price difference is almost 2.5 times. The price factor has done its job, preferred Ordinary, and at the moment this is the fourth tube in my Arsenal.
Azelaic acid is a dicarboxylic acid derived from grains such as wheat and barley. It’s a terrific ingredient to fight inflammation, because it effectively prevents the growth of bacteria causing acne, which helps to keep the skin clean. The advantage of azelaic acid is that it is unlike other acids (salicylic, glycolic and alpha gidromolot) works well with cystic acne deep into the pores and gets rid of all bacteria, embedded deep inside.
Cystic acne is very painful closed inflammation, in our case in the area of the chin and jaw.
Azelaic acid is also a natural exfoliator, which helps to reduce the accumulation of dead skin cells. Plus, azelaic acid has excellent anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness.
Azelaic acid — a powerful ingredient also helps to lighten any hyperpigmentation (aka — terrible acne scars), destroying the pigment that creates them.
The acid is most effective when the percentage of 15-20% (Hello, Skinoren 20%)
But if you use regularly, there is an effect, and 10% not so dry skin.

If you’re interested, and now want to try azelaic acid, Azelaic Acid Suspension from Ordinary 10% is a great product to start with, as it is available without a prescription, and the percentage is not high. A cream in gel form is ideal for all skin types and won’t overload oily, not drained in the heat, but here, of course, there are nuances — is the base.
From Ordinary, as is known, the specific (cheap) choice of base assets. This is the silicone Dimethicone. Not everyone that can come, many complain it to the base… well, what to say? Wanted assets cheap? Get! Sign! My pores, irritation causes. I use the cream in the morning to make sure the evening rinse with gidrofilnoj.
The effectiveness of azelaic acid depends on pH. This means that it should have an appropriate level of acidity. Ideally, the product containing azelaic acid should be pH 4.5-5, which is approximately equal to the pH of healthy human skin.
Ordinary pH of 4-5.
The tool has a white color.
Fragrances , no, or I don’t.
Texture — gel
Distributed very easily and is quickly absorbed, leaves no castes.
Price: 7.5 euros for 30 ml
Use life: 2 years
The manufacturer allows the use of azelaic acid in the day or at night, recommends the use of sunscreen in the morning, as the acid makes the skin sensitive to light.
Also writes that you may experience slight tingling or redness when applied, I do not exist, the skin is not even red. Usually I put only on the chin and jaw, if there’s something there, but the area of the jaw I clean. If you apply the cream regularly, you can reduce the number of rashes to a minimum or even get rid of them.
I don’t apply the cream every day, usually begin to fight a week before the PMS and before the end, and that’s enough for me. The skin is clean, the period is much easier, without unnecessary rashes.
My periodic inflammation — the result of the play of hormones, which I get with varying success. This month, although last as much for two who were sick a long time. For me azelaic acid — the most effective tool. Better than tretinoin, better than BHA, better than Skinoren (need a prescription, a little burn and dry the skin, as Tretinoin, but still dry).
Unfortunately, many acne treatment methods, such as retinoids, BHA is focused on acne acne (and it’s not!) The advantage in front of azelaic Tretinoin is, of course, the absence takoooy the side effects and the choice of any cream, toner, mask. With tretinoina possible except for moisturizing creams not to look. I used Tretinoin for six months and then abandoned, this prison is not for me.
One 6-month study involving 289 people showed that 20% Azelaic Acid cream and 0.05% Tretinoin was “equally effective” against inflammation. The cream of Azelaic acid is better tolerated and did not cause side effects observed with tretinoin. However in this experiment participated 20% Azelaic Acid, but even at 20% she didn’t give side effects provided by the Tretinoin.
The overall conclusion. I suggest you look for this product, nice price, the staff and percent. What else is needed? Database would be normal, if you do not like Ordinary, of course you can pay attention to SP ($36 for 30 ml), where the composition is a little better there is still (Licorice) Root Extract that lightens the skin, BHA ( salicylic) Bisabolol ( hydration) but again steeped in Dimethicone, but not on the second place as Ordinary.
Thank you for your attention. As you azelaic?
