A unique alpha hydroxy acid solution that gently dissolves dead surface cells and debris while simultaneously conditioning and toning skin. Lactic Acid is used as a non-irritating, and naturally hydrating AHA substance. The use of lactic acid rather than the more publicized glycolic acid, is a safer, more effective alternative. Unlike glycolic acid, lactic acid produces no side effects when used in the lower percentages (5-7%) recommended by skin experts for safe daily use. This unique product also nourishes, softens and refines skin texture. The lactic acid is a natural humectant drawing moisture from the air to hydrate the skin's surface. (Cleopatra was known to bathe in lactic acid from soured milk to keep her skin soft and youthful.) This product is balancing for all skin types and is recommended for women and men from teens to mature adults.
