The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% Skincare

The Ordinary Skincare The Beauty Club™

A High-Strength Lactic Acid Superficial Peeling Formulation Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. A milder 5% formula is available here. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. Contraindications: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions. This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic. Note: While Lactic Acid can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD's Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a reference. Directions: Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.)

I have dry and sensitive skin that is prone to dullness and hyperpigmentation, so this product takes care of most of my skin concerns in one single product. It brightens and clarifies my skin so nicely, giving it a much more youthful and glowy appearance. I also find that it enhances the penetration of my serums and moisturisers, so it amps up everything else I put on top. What makes this product so special however is the fact that it uses lactic acid, which is much gentler than glycolic acid (the standard AHA used in most products) as it has a higher molecular weight, but it is also proven to be more effective at correcting hyperpigmentation scars. While this product does tingle on my skin, it doesn't sting or irritate my sensitive skin as much as glycolic acid does, which is a win-win for me. Lactic acid is also much more expensive to produce versus glycolic or mandelic acid, so the fact that this product is so cheap makes it all the better!
