Finacea Foam now available again

LEO Pharma Inc. Announces Availability of Finacea® (azelaic acid) Foam, 15%, for Treatment of Mild-to-Moderate Rosacea

Madison, N.J., April 15, 2020 – LEO Pharma Inc. today announced availability of Finacea® (azelaic acid) Foam, 15%, indicated for the topical treatment of the inflammatory papules and pustules of mild-to-moderate rosacea. LEO Pharma Inc. is the U.S. affiliate of Denmark-based LEO Pharma A/S, a global leader in medical dermatology.

Finacea Foam is the first and only prescription foam approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of rosacea. It is a light water-based (hydrophilic) foam that is alcohol-free and fragrance free.

LEO Pharma acquired Finacea in its 2018 acquisition of Bayer’s prescription dermatology business in the United States. However, beginning in mid-2019, a manufacturing delay had suspended product supply. The company fully investigated the root cause and supply has been restored.

Finacea Foam could be available for as little as $20 co-pay for those with health insurance via LEOPharma Connect.

What is Finacea Foam?

Finacea Foam is the same active ingredient as Finacea- namely Azelaic Acid 15%, but is “suspended in an oil-in-water emulsion vehicle for topical administration”.
