Collection: Lactic Acid

Derived from milk, lactic acid also belongs to alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). It is used to create a mild chemical peel that can help even out your skin tone. It can help address age spots, melasma, and rough texture, along with fine lines.

Lactic acid is naturally found in dairy products - and this is why historically dairy products have been used by people across the world to soften and beautify the skin. Take Cleopatra for example: she regularly bathed in milk to keep her skin looking lovely. And it probably worked, thanks to lactic acid.

However, unlike AHAs such as glycolic acid, lactic acid is a bit milder. This makes a lactic acid peel a better choice for sensitive skin. Lactic acid may also be an option if you’ve tried another AHA in the past and found the product too strong. Lactic acid helps improve the skin's natural moisture factor, or the way the skin keeps itself hydrated. Basically, lactic acid helps to keep the skin moisturized and feeling less dry.

Lactic acid is featured in OTC lotions and creams for keratosis pilaris - or those "chicken skin" bumps on the backs of the arms - because it helps dissolve the plug of skin cells that build up around the hair follicle, smoothing out the bumpiness.
