Abstract: Skin lightening and sebum normalization are among the useful cosmetic functions of potassium azeloyl diglycinate, a soluble derivative of azelaic acid.

The dermatological use of azelaic acid is of interest because of its lightening, anti-seborrheic, anti-mycotic and anti-acne properties. However, its limits in cosmetic formulations are well known, even when it is used at lower concentrations than in pharmacological applications.
