A Mild Lactic Acid Superficial Peeling Formulation

The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% is a mild Alpha-Hydroxy Acid that exfoliates the skin, dissolving the bonds holding dead cells to the skin’s surface and revealing a brighter, fresher complexion. It also helps to reduce acne breakouts and the appearance of fine lines, uneven pigmentation and marks from previous blemishes. This formula contains Tasmanian Pepperberry Extract which helps reduce the inflammation and sensitivity that can sometimes occur with AHA use, and Hyaluronic Acid which hydrates and helps to plump skin.
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. 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.)
