Lactic Acid is a part of the AHA family that helps brighten, smoothen, and even out the texture by gently exfoliating the outer layer of your skin. It helps your skin repair from the daily stress and pollution. Hyaluronic Acid is known for its moisture retention capacity. It helps the skin quench its thirst by keeping it hydrated all day long. Hydrated skin can retain its elasticity and stay young for extended periods. St.Botanica Gentle Exfoliating Peel is infused with the goodness of Lactic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid that helps create a peeling effect, removing all the dirt and grime along with dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.
A skin rejuvenating serum with 10% Lactic Acid mildly exfoliates the skin without drying it out. The soothing, lightweight serum also helps stimulate cell renewal in the epidermis and dermis layer of the skin to easily sink into the skin and work from within

If you are suffering from pigmentation and age spots, Lactic acid is your ultimate skin essential. It removes the dead epidermal layer, revealing smoother and brighter skin. And if you are new to AHA’s, then lactic acid is milder and safer for your skin as compared to other acids.
Our Lactic acid contains Hyaluronic acid for that extra hydration boost. It is suited for all skin types. Patch test is always recommended to begin with any new product.
The effects of using direct acids depend on your skin’s tolerance power for the same. AHA’s can cause sun sensitivity in some people, so using sunblock every morning and reapplication when required is highly recommended.
Lactic acid should be used at night time only on cleansed skin. Wait for a few minutes for the product to sink in and then dab on your favourite facial oil or moisturizer.
Make sure your skin is not excessively dry and irritated before application. Don’t use the solution with products that can dry out the skin like retinoids, tretinoin, & anti acne products. Apply sunscreen every morning without fail.
Yes, Lactic Acid is a very mild solution that is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is not only milder than Glycolic Acid, but the mildest of all AHAs.
AHAs work on the skin surface to remove dead skin cells while BHAs penetrate deep into the cells to scoop out dirt and grime. If you don’t have sensitive skin, try using both and decide for yourself.
AHAs & BHAs are both exfoliating agents. They can be used together, provided the concentration of one is considerably lesser than the other.
Anything in a limited quantity doesn’t harm the skin. We recommend to avoid using higher concentrations of Retinol alongside Lactic Acid.
Lactic Acid is safe for people of all age groups. Teens with acne and other skin issues can use Lactic Acid. The solution is highly recommended for both males & females in their early 20s for exfoliation.
