Lactic Acid 5% Serum


Suitable for Vegetarians


GoW Lactic Acid 5% Serum: Lactic acid 5% Serum is a water-based alpha hydroxy acid, AHA, serum to exfoliate skin's surface. Lactic acid serum offers gentle exfoliation revealing new, healthier skin.

Lactic acid is a larger molecule than glycolic acid which means that its exfoliating action is generally on the surface of skin and therefore it can be gentler to skin. Caution is still advised for those with sensitive skin.

  • Fades pigmentation marks and acne scars
  • Ideal for dry skin to slough away dead skin cells
  • Derived from corn; suitable for vegans
  • Skin softening benefits; may be added to a body lotion to soften skin, fade pigmentation marks and control body acne.
  • A pH of 2.8 - 3.1
