Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation.

The Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative helps to reduce irritation associated with facial acid use, including alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid. Please note that Tasmanian Pepperberry varies in colour seasonally, and this colour variation may be apparent in The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%.

To learn more about how to navigate this brand, click here to read our skincare guide on The Ordinary. 

When to not use The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2%: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions. Ensure that this formula is introduced slowly into your routine.

This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic.

 After opening, this product must be used within three months.

Loving my skin - 10-10-2017 by

I use this as a part of my weekly skin routine and the results have been beautiful, my skin looks clearer and more refined. Will definitely be buying this again to keep it a part of my skin routine.
Trying this was stranger for the first time because I hadn't tried chemical exfoliants before, but I am definitely a convert after seeing and feeling the results.

Love this! - 27-09-2017 by

I have normal skin and this is an excellent night exfoliation a few nights a week. Love the way it feels --- it isn't as powerful as Liquid Gold so if you are looking for something to use more frequent then this would be the one.

Love this product for my keratosis pilaris! - 22-09-2017 by

This is fantastic! I use it at night, several times a week. It's been amazing, I highly recommend this product if you have the dreaded "chicken skin" on your arms/legs. I use it on my face a could times a week as well, and it has definitely made my skin clearer. But mostly I am blown away by how well it has treated my keratosis pilaris, because that is so difficult to treat.

Gentle but thorough exfoliant - 11-07-2017 by

I use this three to four times a week as part of my regime, and have found it to be hugely gentle but effective in exfoliating my skin. I have dry/combination skin and was concerned at first it would dry me out or give me rashes but it does the opposite - absorbs greatly and gives me noticeably brighter and cleaner skin.

In Love - 02-06-2017 by

I use this every second night as a part of my skincare regime. I'll either apply a generous amount and leave it on my skin as a 'mask' for 15 minutes and wash off, or apply a smaller amount and tap into my skin until it is absorbed. I would say that it doesn't usually absorb fully and can leave a tacky like feeling on the skin but other than that it is great. I used to always use abrasive exfoliators that you physcially rub across your skin but I found not only were they aggravating my already tender acne prone skin but that it wasnt actually giving me long term results. Since finding the Ordinary Skincare range and reading the science behind AHAs I'm hooked on this product. My skin is feeling softer and glowing more than it ever has. While it hasn't erased my acne scarring completely it's definitely helping the blemishes fade faster.
Can't wait until Adore Beauty stocks the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution so I can try this exfoliating product from The Ordinary next!
