Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. It has a larger molecule than it's aha counterparts which makes it a lot gentler on the skin. This facial serum contains 10% lactic acid which offers mild exfoliation and is supported by hydrating goodies to give your skin a supercharge as it helps to repair your moisture barrier. This product works great for those with dry skin, fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
Directions: Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.)
