Where is it from:
Lactic acid is an effective AHA found in a variety of foods and sources, including dairy products like milk. However, those opting for vegan-friendly solutions can also find lactic acid derived from organic ingredients such as corn starch that has been fermented or beets with higher sugar content
How does it differentiate from other AHAs:
Lactic acid is a powerful ingredient for skincare, providing gentle and effective exfoliation. It’s larger than other acids like glycolic or salicylic which means it can’t penetrate as deeply – but this also makes it an ideal choice for most skin types especially those with sensitive skin who need to avoid irritation Its milder action on the surface of your complexion helps smooth away dead cells while keeping the pH balance of your skin barrier intact
Who is it good for:
Acne prone skin type, especially those with sensitive skin looking for a gentle exfoliant. Always use a moisturiser after using products with lactic acid
What is bad with Lactic Acid?
Do not use it with other acids or exfoliants, AHAs, BHAs or PHAs, retinol or benzoyl peroxide
