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.

Dermalist Ultra Hydrating Lactic Cleanser 200ml


I received a sample of this cleanser with my recent order - it's great. It's probably a little out of my price range otherwise, but I love its exfoliating qualities while still being gentle enough to use everyday as my skin is a little sensitive and dry. My skin looks and feels a lot clearer when I use this cleanser without stripping my skin.

great results

I have tried a few at home peels and wanted something to continue with improving my skin after having Fraxel laser treatment. This is probably the most results effective and cost effective peel. My face lights up after having this peel ( I only use once per week). Its a good in betweener for salon facial peels and to use against the sun damage and sun spots.

This serum works absolute wonders for my skin. I have never been one to suffer from acne however as a healthcare worker, I have developed 'maskne.' This serum has really helped to calm the breakouts and leaves my skin looking hydrated.
