- WHAT AM I
A high-strength, complexion-evening serum that rapidly exfoliates and removes dull, dead surface cells to instantly brighten and smooth the appearance of dark spots or discoloured patches for a more unified, radiant glow.
- WHY PICK ME
Lactic Acid is a well-researched alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) known for its excellent exfoliating effects on the superficial layers of the skin but with a much larger molecular size that penetrates less deeply and therefore works more gently than most other AHAs, making it a better tolerated alternative for sensitive/reactive skin types.
Apart from its ability to fade signs of discoloration, including post-breakout marks, by hastening the shedding and renewal of surface cells that have a visible accumulation of excess pigment, Lactic Acid also offers the extra benefit of improving the skin’s natural moisture factor (NMF) by increasing levels of stratum corneum ceramides.
Additionally enhanced with N-Acetyl Glucosamine, a replenishing amino sugar and a precursor for the biosynthesis of hyaluronic acid, to ensure that the skin remains hydrated and to prevent wrinkles from forming or getting deeper while inhibiting the shaping of age spots/melasma caused by overactive pigment cells.
Further supported by anti-inflammatory Panthenol, a pro-vitamin B that relieves irritation while also strengthening skin barrier function; alongside multitasking Beta-Glucan to provide progressive and prolonged moisturizing effects as well as limit the sensations of tightness, dryness or discomfort while promoting dermal regeneration and protecting against desquamation.
- Highly Purified Lactic Acid [10%]
- N-Acetyl Glucosamine [2%]

- Beta-Glucan (100% bio-sourced, derived from oat)
- All skin types, including sensitive/reactive skin.

Good to Know
This lactic acid serum contains alpha hydroxy acid that can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn, which is why it would serve more appropriate as part of your nighttime routine. It is recommended to start slow (about once a week) and gradually build up a tolerance before increasing the usage, and to limit sun exposure when using this product for at least one week after initial use.
The first few uses may also cause slight facial redness, mild burning/warming or occasional stinging/tingling sensation on or around the site of application, but these should diminish after several uses as directed. Avoid mixing lactic acid with products containing retinol, benzoyl peroxide and various chemical or physical exfoliants at the same time to lessen the risk of developing an irritation.
1. This booster drop is highly concentrated and daily use is not recommended.

3. Avoid contact with eyes.
4. Always do a patch test first.
5. If irritation occurs during use, especially after prolonged or repeated use, stop use immediately and consult a doctor.
