lactic acid

General: If you've ever accidentally sipped sour milk you've ingested lactic acid. An alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) like citric acid, lactic acid is useful for treating hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and as a regenerative agent. 

Skin Benefits: A milder alternative to glycolic acid and fruit acid peels, lactic acid has been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by gently dissolving dead skin cells, increasing the rate of cell renewal, smoothing skin texture and tightening skin tone. It is the active ingredient in our popular Coconut Bliss Exfoliating Cream Mask. Lactic acid cleanses and clears pores so nourishing coconut oil and antioxidant goji mate extract can soak in.
