Present in the formula at 10% concentration, Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that exfoliates the skin. It is one of the least irritating alpha hydroxy acids. It helps the older, dull cells on the skin’s surface to slough away by dissolving the bonds that hold them together. Lactic also supports the skin’s natural moisture factor (NMF), or the way the skin keeps itself hydrated.
Lactic acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note below.
For: Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines.
