Lactic Acid 80%

R 30.00

Lactic acid is a naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids (or AHAs) produced by fermentation of sugars. It is the alpha hydroxy acid most frequently used for peel products.

Typical Uses

  • Very useful to rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old surface skin cells
  • Can reduce the appearance of fine lines, irregular pigmentation, age spots & decreases enlarged pores
  • Often used in creams & lotions at a lower concentration for a more gentle acid-based peel.
Usage:
Typical use level is between 1-20% in peels, creams, lotions, masks, cleansers. Due to it's acidity the final product needs to be tested for safe pH. Optimal pH range from 3.5-5.0. Some over the counter products, after adding lactic acid, will separate as a result of the low pH, and need to be stabilized.

Please note we are unable to offer advice on formulating lactic acid peels or other information regarding its use as such.  Please consult a professional, as using lactic acid as a chemical peel at an inappropriate strength can seriously damage your skin

Warning: Do not apply Lactic Acid 80% directly onto your skin. It is a strong acid. This will BURN and cause your skin to blister and peel days later, and prolonged contact can cause permanent damage.
