Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that provides gentle exfoliation to reveal bright skin with a boosted youthful glow. This vegan version is manufactured by fermentation of non-GMO corn derived carbohydrates. It is often used as a gentler alternative to Glycolic Acid and is often used in products for teenage skin.
It can be used as a pH adjuster and also works well in formulas with ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid that promote hydration.
Please Note: Do not apply directly on to skin undiluted. Must be diluted for safety.
