Pure + Simple Lactic Acid 5%
THE PRODUCT: An alpha hydroxy acid exfoliating serum made of food-grade Lactic Acid, which helps reduce blemishes + unclog pores.
This gentle exfoliant contains 5% Lactic Acid and a natural base of Algin + Aloe Vera is a hydrating alternative to other AHAs, especially for more sensitive skin. With no manual scrub, this exfoliating gel effectively dissolves dead skin cells as it is applied to the skin.
IDEAL FOR: Dry + sensitive skin types; blemish and acne prone
TO USE: Apply to clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Let the skin absorb it for 15 minutes to exfoliate + brighten. Follow with serum + moisturizer. Use only at night.
I recommend using this not more than 2-3 times per week. If you're new to lactic acid (or alpha hydroxy acids in general), first test the lactic acid on a small patch of skin (behind the ear or lower jawline is a good place). Discontinue if a reaction occurs. If there's no reaction, try using the lactic acid 1x per week first, and work up to 2-3 x per week. Always use alpha hydroxy acids at night time because they can make your skin more sensitive in the sunlight. Wear an SPF during the day like Consonant's Perfect Sunscreen.
INGREDIENTS: Water, Algin (Sea algae derivative), Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Vera) Powder, Vegetable Glycerin, Lactic Acid.
