Lactic Acid is an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) – it has both exfoliant and humectant properties
Lactic Acid is part of the skin’s NMFs (Natural Moisturising Factors) and is knownto be one of the more gentle AHA’s
A chemical exfoliant that helps to increase the cell turnover of the top layer of the skin (epidermis) by breaking down the protein bonds that keep skin cells together– helping to remove accumulated dead skin cells. The removal of dead skin cells helps to keep pores unclogged and brighten skin
It stimulates the production of collagen which helps to strengthen the epidermis, diminishing the appearance of fine lines.
The exfoliation shortens the skin renewal process which assists in fading dark marks on the skin.
