Lactic Acid

279 results

Are you looking to start your journey into the world of exfoliating acids? Do you have sensitive skin that just can't tolerate this method of exfoliation? It's time to say hello to your exfoliating skin savior, lactic acid. Derived from sour milk or fruit extracts, lactic acid is by no means a new skincare ingredient; Cleopatra used to famously soak in baths of milk to keep her skin soft and smooth. Luckily, we no longer have to go to these extremes to get the exfoliating benefits thanks to next-generation, high-performance skincare formulas.

An exfoliating acid, lactic acid has a multitude of skincare benefits. It dissolves away dead skin cells to reveal the fresh, smooth cells underneath and give your skin a healthy, radiant glow. It can also help to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, add firmness to the skin and has anti-bacterial benefits that work to reduce breakouts. Despite the powerful results, lactic acid is a gentle ingredient that can be used regularly by all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Lactic acid is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). You may have heard of glycolic acid, the most commonly used AHA thanks to its softening and smoothing properties. However, some AHAs can be too harsh for beginners or those with sensitive skin. That's where lactic acid comes in. The molecules of lactic acid are larger than its fellow AHAs, which prevent it from penetrating too deeply and causing irritation. Instead, it works on the surface of the skin, polishing away dead skin cells for a light peel effect without the side effects.

We've put together an essential collection of lactic acid-enriched skincare from some of your favorite skincare brands. From daily acid toners to powerful exfoliating masks and everything in between, discover the skin-smoothing effects of lactic acid.
