Lactic acid is an naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acid (or AHAs) produced by fermentation of sugars. It is most frequently used for peel products. 

 

Benefits:
  • Very useful to rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old surface skin cells
  • Can reduce the appearance of fine lines, irregular pigmentation, age spots & decreases enlarged pores
  • Good choice for first-time peel users or for those with sensitive skin
  • Often used in creams & lotions at a lower concentration for a more gentle acid-based peel.
