PG6 ACTIVE AA-BET C® is an exclusive form of natural azelaic acid acting as an effective anti-acne, sebum-normalizing and skin lightening agent.
Thanks to a special synthesis reaction, this stable form of azelaic acid (whose concentration within the substance is up to 40%) can be incorporated in many different applications at a wide pH range.
PG6 ACTIVE AA-BET C® can be quickly solubilized in water in a cold process allowing formulators to create either transparent water-based gels or OW/WO emulsions.
In-vivo tests showed depigmentation and anti-acne activity.

It has also been shown to be effective at treating rosacea and erythema. Azelaic Acid has a lightening effect on dark spots while glycine moisturizes the skin and makes it more elastic.
• Completely soluble in water and hydroalcoholic mixtures, stable over a wide pH range, active substance carrier, compatible with non-ionic, anionic and cationic solutions.
• It has solvent capacities, a good stabilizing effect in emulsions and dispersing power with a high surface hygroscopicity which provides a long-lasting moisturizing action.
