Derived from acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA). It is oil (lipid) soluble – which AHA are not. This allows the BHA to penetrate oily pores and help to exfoliate the pore itself. It breaks down the ‘glue’ that causes breakouts and oily, uneven skins. It helps the cell to let go of the excess sebum that oily skins like to hold on to.
Like AHAs, beta hydroxy acid (BHA) also acts as an exfoliant increasing the shedding of dead skin cells. BHA is extremely useful for treating breakouts and helps manage keratosis pilaris and other conditions that involve blocked or clogged pores.

Azelaic acid has proven to be an effective tyrosinase inhibitor. That means it prevents a process known as melanin synthesis, which is how your skin produces pigments that can vary your skin's tone. Its antibacterial effects go further by inhibiting the synthesis of the cellular protein in bacteria such as staphylococcus epidermis, and propionibacterium acne.
