When used at concentrations higher than 2%, Lactic Acid will perform the same functions as well as offering:
- enhanced skin lightening effects
- improved collagen and elastin synthesis.
- accelerated exfoliation and cell renewal.
- removal of the corneocyte or “dead/horny” layer of skin to reveal a fresher, more youthful appearance.
NOTE: Please be aware that when you use AHA’s on the skin you are exposing new skin, which is much more susceptible to UV damage. Always follow with an adequate sunscreen. Important: Do not use AHAs pure and undiluted; they are highly acidic and can lead to skin irritation and skin burns and severe scarring.
