Derived from milk, fruit, vegetables and other plants, Lactic Acid is one of the most popular Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) found in anti-acne and anti-aging products and chemicals peels.
Like other AHAs, Lactic Acid has been known to help reduce acne breakouts and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
What differentiates it from others, however, is its reputation. Noticeably gentler than Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid is effective in acne-prone, dry and mature skin types without irritating the skin (some formulations are even gentle enough for rosacea).
It’s hardly a recent discovery though; goat’s milk was used as an ancient lactic acid spa treatment, and legend has it that Cleopatra soaked in milk baths sprinkled in with rose petals.
What does it do to your skin:
Increases natural barrier lipids in skin’s outer layers to help prevent skin’s natural oils and water from escaping;
Helps stimulate collagen production;
Encourages outermost layer to shed quicker to reveal healthier, newer skin;
Helps promote cell turnover;
Softens the skin.
Why it is so good"
It exfoliates without irritating the skin the way a traditional granular scrub would. It’s an anti-acne and anti-aging ingredient all in one, keeping skin in check and leaving it baby smooth to the touch.
Like all AHAs, Lactic Acid increases the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. (AHAs work to slough off the outermost layer of skin, leaving this new layer vulnerable to UV rays.) Be sure to take extra care by using a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day.

Enzymes like alpha hydroxy acids help the skin exfoliated.
AHA’s loosen the top layer of dead cells a primarily composed of keratin, while on the other hand enzymes dissolve the keratinized layer.
Papaya and pineapple are great sources of proteolytic (protein dissolving) plant enzymes. This extract is formulated to enhance the enzyme properties of the separate extracts to create the perfect exfoliating and renewing blend.
The protein-dissolving enzyme papain can only be found in papayas. Papain is at its highest level just before the papaya ripens, while it is still green.
The powerful papain enzyme dissolves dead and damaged skin cells. Papaya is great for blemishes, mature skin, dandruff, large pores, and sunspots.
Some research shows that the enzyme papain is useful as an exfoliant where excess keloids have formed during wound healing.
Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain and alpha hydroxy acids (malic acid; citric acid; tartaric acid; glycolic acid).
