Shop Lactic Acid

Lactic acid is another well known and widely used alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). It is milder than glycolic acid and therefore better suited for sensitive skin. Like other AHAs, lactic acid is an exfoliant and its use will result in softer, smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin.

The benefits of lactic acid

Lactic acid exfoliates the skin, removing its dull outer layer. It increases the rate at which new cells replace older ones and encourages the skin to keep renewing itself. All alpha-hydroxy acids will exfoliate and improve the texture of the skin, but not all AHAs can improve the skin’s ability to stay moisturised. Lactic acid can! This makes lactic acid perfect for people with dry or dehydrated skin. Lactic acid is also beneficial to sufferers of eczema and rosacea.

Is lactic acid for me?

Regular use of cosmeceutical grade lactic acid stimulates collagen renewal, firming the skin and improving the visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Sun and age spots a.k.a hyperpigmentation, also fade with consistent lactic acid use. Lactic acid is gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin and all other skin types.

I love this tonic so much I purchased the full size after trying out the sample set. I e found it really helps minimise pores and limit oiliness on my tzone. Worth every cent. I do dispense it into a spray bottle which helps it go further in terms of use.

great everyday cleanser for makeup removal

I use this everyday, even after "going out" makeup and it gets everything off, leaves my face feeling fresh and its quite gentle.

My skin is early 40s, dry and hormonal, this is mild enough to use everyday and not drying.
