Lactic Acid Skin Care

What is Lactic Acid?

Naturally derived from fermented milk, Lactic Acid is one of the mildest Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and is therefore ideal for gentle chemical exfoliation. This is because it has a larger molecule compared to other AHA's. This acid is unique as it not only exfoliates your skin but aids to keep it hydrated at the same time.

Which skin types is Lactic Acid best for?

Due to its gentle nature, Lactic Acid can be used on all skin types however it is best suited for dry, mature and sensitive skin.

What are the main benefits of Lactic Acid?

  • Increases cell turnover and stimulates cell renewal
  • Smooths and softens skin's texture
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Helps fade dark spots
  • Softens fine lines
  • Helps retain moisture levels

How to use Lactic Acid?

Use Lactic Acid in the evening for 3 times per week and gradually build up to every day.
