Lactic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that works by breaking the protein bridges between the corneocytes, releasing them and reducing the thickness of the hyperkeratotic stratum corneum. It stimulates the production of new collagen and glycosaminoglycans which make up the dermal matrix. It has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin, attracting water molecules to the stratum corneum, stimulating ceramide synthesis and enhancing and modulating the barrier function.
It is recommended for delicate areas such as the neck and neckline due to its high tolerance by the skin.
