Lactic Acid is the most popular and the least aggressive acid among all the AHAs. Unlike Salicylic and Glycolic acids which can irritate your skin, Lactic Acid will hardly cause any problems. The combination of its soft action and effectiveness makes it a real brilliant. It exfoliates dead cells, makes the skin tone even, clears pores, kills bacteria, moisturizes the skin and helps to keep water, helps the cells to produce Hyaluronic Acid. It also works as a strong antioxidant and anti-aging component.
It's a great acid for getting familiar with the world of AHAs. If you want to start using "fruit acids" but struggling for some reason, try to use Lactic Acid first. If your skin accepts it well, you can try stronger acids.
Alcohol Denatured is a great bacteria killer. At the same time, it’s one of the most harmful alcohols you should use carefully, especially if you have dry skin. It removes oily barrier from your skin making it less protected and causing dryness. In general, if this ingredient stays below the 6th position it will hardly harm your skin. We recommend testing the product first before application. If you feel a “cooling effect” it means the product contains a lot of alcohol.
1,2-Hexanediol can do a lot of good things for the formulation of the product. It’s an emollient, preservative, and humectant. It keeps skin hydrated and soft. It’s a good component for dry and dehydrated skin.
