Lactic acid

This multi-purpose exfoliating acid is an excellent choice for bright, smooth, firm and hydrated skin. An AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), Lactic Acid works by encouraging skin to shed dead cells and transfering new cells to the surface. It’s already found in the skin’s NMF (Natural Moisturising Factor) which is a whole range of substances vital for keeping skin supple and hydrated. As a larger molecule than Glycolic acid, Lactic acid is generally well tolerated by most skin types.

Key Benefits

  • Firms and smooths: Smooths rough skin texture making it visibly more radiant. Has also been shown to firm skin and smooth the appearance of lines

  • Brightens: Softly brightens the complexion, as through exfoliation older pigmented skin cells are shed from the surface

  • Moisture booster: At lower concentrations Lactic acid works as a humectant, which attracts and holds onto a reservoir of moisture to keep your skin hydrated

Patch test when trying exfoliating acids for the first time to make sure they’re compatible with your skin
