1. Information about Derma Forte and active ingredient Azelaic Acid
Derma Forte is a brand of cream that is used to prevent and treat acne, dark spots, and scarring. It is available at most pharmacies in Vietnam for around 90,000 VND.
Derma Forte works by:
- Preventing the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

Azelaic Acid is the main active ingredient in Derma Forte and accounts for 20% of the product. This ingredient has the following effects:
- Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory: It inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacteria inside the pores, as well as suppressing TLR2 (Toll-like receptor 2) to quickly reduce inflammation, reduce inflammation, swelling, and pus, and quickly reduce the types of inflammatory acne including cysts, pus, and red inflammatory acne.
- Prevent keratinization: This means that it has the ability to prevent the accumulation of dead skin, thereby reducing the clogging condition on the skin, helping to reduce and prevent the appearance of blackheads, comedones, and hidden acne.
- Change sebum structure: Sebum is the perfect food for the bacteria P.acnes that cause acne. Azelaic acid itself does not control oil, but it can reduce the amount of natural fatty acids in sebum, making bacteria P.acnes starve and grow less.

- Hydration: Niacinamide can help to hydrate the skin by increasing the production of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that helps to attract water to the skin.

- Acne treatment: Niacinamide can help to treat acne by reducing inflammation and sebum production.
Niacinamide is a safe and effective ingredient that can be used by people of all ages. It is available in a variety of products, including serums, creams, and lotions.
