How Lab Alley Brand Lactic Acid Products Are Used For Making Skin Care Products
Lactic acid is a great exfoliant. Exfoliating your skin is important for skin health and normal function. Glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid work great to address fine lines, dark spots, and sun damage.

Lactic acid is an over-the-counter chemical exfoliant that comes from the fermentation of lactose — a carbohydrate found in milk. It's a popular ingredient in numerous skin care products nowadays. But its use is nothing new. It dates back to ancient Egypt. It's common knowledge that Cleopatra used to bathe in sour milk to keep her skin looking more youthful.
Like glycolic and mandelic acids, lactic acid belongs to the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) family.

Besides its ability to significantly improve the skin's appearance, it helps keep it naturally hydrated.
