Lactic acid is an organic acid, commonly found in nature and also naturally formed in the body. It is used as pH adjuster in cosmetic formulations. Lactic acid is a natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and it also helps to enhance skin cells turnover, like a natural exfoliant, improving skin's overall look & feel.

Lactic acid is an organic acid, commonly found in nature and also naturally formed in the body. It is edible and used in the food industry as a preservative and to control flavor.
When added to cosmetic formulations, it decreases the formulation’s Ph level making it more acidic. For this reason, lactic acid is also widely used in skin and hair care products as a Ph adjuster keeping the products at the proper Ph level to ensure efficacy of preservatives.
Lactic acid is a natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and, besides adjusting the Ph, it also helps to enhance skin cells turnover, like a natural exfoliant, supporting the reduction of wrinkles and lines and improving the overall look and feel of the skin.

HOW TO USE LACTIC ACID:
As the last step when producing emulsions, check the pH level of the emulsion using a pH test strip. If pH is above 5,5, add few drops of lactic acid, blend it well so that the lactic acid is evenly dispersed. Measure the pH level again and repeat if necessary until the desired pH level is reached. If you are producing an emulsion using Skincare Crafters ECO as the preservative, the final pH level should be between 4,0 and 5,5.
