Lactobionic Acid Skincare
Time To Brighten Up




Acid skincare might sound a little overwhelming but including one within your regime is key when it comes to brightening and refining your complexion.

Lactobionic Acid is a PHA – Poly Hydroxy Acid, a similar acid family to AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids, the most well known being glycolic and lactic).The main difference between these two groups of acids are that PHAs have a larger molecular structure, meaning they do not penetrate as deep into the skin and provide effective exfoliation on the surface of the skin only. This makes them perfect for those with sensitive skin who are prone to irritation sometimes caused by AHA’s.

Read on to discover how this powerful yet gentle acid can be used to effectively resurface and illuminate your skin.

Why lactobionic acid skincare is good for your skin

Derived from plant extracts, Lactobionic Acid is a mild exfoliant that smoothes and resurfaces without causing irritation or redness – making it a suitable exfoliating ingredient for all skin types, even for those with sensitive skin.

This is important because stronger AHA acids can cause increased sensitivity to the sun and its damaging UV rays. Lactobionic acid is also less likely to cause irritation as it is bio-available and therefore easily absorbed by the skin.

Additionally, Lactobionic Acid is also known to increase cellular turnover, ensuring that dead skin cells do not build up on the surface of the skin – (which often leads to breakouts and a dull, greying complexion), as well as reducing the appearance of scarring and highly pigmented areas caused by over exposure to UV rays.

Lactobionic acid is also a strong humectant, as it has the ability to attract and retain moisture within the skin. This ensures that the skins stays hydrated and skin cells are plumped, firming the skin whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
