Skinoren 20% Cream 30g
How does Skinoren cream work?
Skinoren cream contains the active ingredient azelaic acid.
Azelaic acid reduces the growth of the keratin surface skin cells that can block pores. This helps to unblock the pores and sebaceous glands (glands which secrete sebum) and as a result the sebum can escape. This reduces the formation of blackheads and spots.
Azelaic acid also kills the bacteria associated with acne, Propionebacterium acnes. This is a common type of bacteria that feeds on sebum produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. It produces waste products and fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands, making them inflamed and causing spots.
Azelaic acid reduces the numbers of these bacteria by reducing their food source (sebum) and by inhibiting their growth. By controlling bacterial numbers, the inflammation of the sebaceous glands is brought under control, and the skin is allowed to heal.
- Regular use of Skinoren is important. In general, an improvement in the acne becomes apparent after about four weeks of using the cream. The manufacturer states that to obtain the best results, Skinoren cream should be applied over a period of several months, but not for more than 12 months at a time.
Who shouldn't use Skinoren cream?
- Children under 12 years of age.
- People who are allergic to any of the ingredients. Check the ingredients listed in the leaflet that comes with the medicine if you know you have specific allergies.
