A High-Strength Lactic Acid Superficial Peeling Formulation
Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. A milder 5% formula is also available
The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% is a high-strength Alpha-Hydroxy Acid treatment that exfoliates surface levels of the skin, banishing dullness and revealing a brighter, fresher, more radiant complexion. It helps to treat skin that has been photo-damaged, stimulating collagen production and helping to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It brightens skin and helps to reduce hyperpigmentation from UV exposure, including dark spots, melasma and even freckles. It may even help to improve the appearance of acne scars . Because it removes dead cells from the skin’s surface, it improves the effectiveness of your other skin care products, letting them reach and deliver their benefits to the younger skin cells beneath.
Warning: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Always use an SPF during the day time when using products containing AHAs.
Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Should 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.)
