Lactate (Lactic Acid)

This naturally occurring substance is created from the splitting of carbohydrates through the milk-sour fermentation process. As a result, it is different from the Lactose found in milk. Lactic Acid is a key component of the hydro-lipid film that balances the natural moisture levels of the skin, and it is a natural byproduct of the body’s metabolic activities as we breakdown glucose. It improves and balance’s the skin’s moisture content, nourishes fine, dry skin and prevents against the formation of wrinkles. * It does not serve as an allergy concern for those that are lactose intolerant, as milk proteins are not contained in Lactic Acid.
