Product Name: Azelaic acid-Taurine
IUPAC Name: 2,2′-(nonanedioylbis(azanediyl))bis(ethane-1-sulfonic acid),
Description: Azelaic acid (AzA) is a saturated 9-carbon dicarboxylic acid derived from the fungus Pityrosporum ovale and can be found in rye, wheat, and barley. Azelaic acid interferes with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) synthesis, inhibits mitochondrial oxidoreductase, competitively inhibits tyrosinase, and decreases free radical formation. Taurine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the brain and spinal cord, leukocytes, heart and muscle cells, the retina, and indeed almost every tissue throughout the body. There is ever-increasing evidence that taurine depletion leads to a wide range of pathological conditions, including severe cardiomyopathy, renal dysfunction, pancreatic β cell malfunction, and loss of retinal photoreceptor.
