Lactic Acid is a non-irritating rapid exfoliator. Lactic Acid is recommended for those that are new to chemical exfoliating agents, as well as those that have used other chemical exfoliators for a long period and want to improve results. * When left on the skin for only 1-2 minutes (refer to instructions when performing a peel) peeling, redness and down-time varies from 0 to 3 days. Approximately 5 days after performing a peel the skin appears rejuvenated and more youthful looking.
Lactic Acid is a naturally occurring human metabolite, and combined with the chemical free style of Peel RX Home Peel products, there is less potential for allergic reaction with this type of acid peel. Lactic Acid is said to be less harsh and more moisturizing than Glycolic Acid skin peels.
