How does it work?
Lactic acid is a very effective exfoliant that works at the base of the skin’s epidermis (the top layer of skin), dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells together, allowing the fresh, healthy skin to be revealed. Because this increases cell turnover, skin becomes smoother, more elastic and more even in tone and texture.
Lactic Acid is also a humectant, this means it can help to attract water within the skin, when our skin is dehydrated it can look lacklustre and sallow, by increasing the hydration in the top layers of your skin, your skin will instantly appear a little plumper.
At the same time Lactic Acid may also stimulate your skin to produce more collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin and keeps it elastic and line free, as we age, our bodies produces less of the main structural protein that keeps your face elastic - so wrinkles start forming!
AHA’s encourage better product absorption. When we find a fantastic serum and moisturiser to use on our skin, we want to ensure we get the best from the product. Unfortunately, when added to the dead skin cells and excess oil already coating the surface of our skin, these products are not going to work at their full potential. Lactic acid exfoliates, removing this dead skin, meaning your products no longer have this barrier that they need to penetrate through, this greatly improves the efficacy (effectiveness) of the products.
What's the difference between Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid? Lactic acid is a milder exfoliator, it's also a humectant which means it helps the skin to retain moisture. It can be used alongside our glycolic acid and salicylic acid and gives the skin a plumped up appearance and a beautiful, healthy glow. Lactic Acid is the best choice if you suffer with dry or dehydrated skin.
Will my face be sore and peeling?
A chemical peel works to help exfoliate the skin without the need for any scrubs or manual exfoliators. Home use chemical peels help to speed up the natural exfoliation process, removing the top, dead layer of skin.
Despite this, you won’t see your skin peeling off. What is noticeable though, are the amazing results when you stimulate cell turn over (another world for exfoliation) you’ll instantly see smoother and brighter skin.

Before You Buy
If you are undergoing any kind of intense beauty treatment (microdermabrasion, glycolic acid treatment, laser therapy etc) consult your therapist before purchase. If you have any broken veins/capillaries we recommend avoiding these areas. If you're on medication which increases the skins sensitivity or causes severe dryness we do not recommend acid based products during treatment and for 12 months after your course has been completed. People who commonly have cold sores may find that chemical peels can cause an outbreak of cold sores and may want to take their medication before use or avoid use altogether, do not apply acid products to your skin while you have an active cold sore.
If you are worried that this may not be suitable for you then take a look at our Dermaflannel® which gives very similar results. If you are on medication, consult your doctor before use.
AHA's may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit strong sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Do not use sunbeds while using products containing lactic acid, glycolic acid or salicylic acid.
