Sodium Lactate (Lactic Acid)

Lactic acid is extremely antimicrobial and helps reduce the appearance of acne. It is a mild chemical exfoliant that promotes healthy cell turnover and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation.

Sodium lactate is the sodium salt of lactic acid produced by bio-fermentation of corn starch. This process involves fermenting the starch with microbes under anaerobic conditions to produce lactic acid. 

We use lactic acid in our InflorEssence Facial Cleanser to gently exfoliate the skin and remove oil and dirt build-up from the day.
