L (+)-Lactic Acid 90% 
CAS: 50-21-5

L (+) Lactic Acid is the natural form of this ingredient often used as a milder alternative to glycolic acid in cosmetic formulations. Alpha hydroxy acids have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal, improving skin texture and tone.

Lactic acid is often used as a natural pH adjuster in formulations.  Produced by the fermentation of carbohydrates, this product does not contain bovine, ovine, or caprine materials of any type.

Please note, we are not estheticians or doctors and we are unable to offer advice on formulating lactic acid peels or other information regarding its use as such.  Please consult a professional, as using lactic acid as a chemical peel at an inappropriate strength can seriously damage your skin! 

Warning: Do not apply Lactic Acid 90% directly onto your skin. It is strongly acidic. This will BURN and cause your skin to blister and peel days later, and prolonged contact can cause permanent damage. If it comes in contact with your skin while formulating, immediately wash affected area with plenty of soap and water and remove and wash any clothing it may have spilled on.

We have a new Dilution Calculator on our Calculators page that will help you with "Lactic Acid Math".  Click here for the direct link to that page.

CIR Review of Lactic Acid indicates it is approved for use at 10% or less, at a final formulation pH no less than 3.5, when formulated to avoid increasing sun sensitivity or when directions for use include the daily use of sun protection. Because products formulated with AHAs can increase sun sensitivity, the FDA requires specific labeling of products which contain AHAs and do not include sunscreens. This information and much more is contained in the FDA document USFDA on Labeling for Topically Applied Cosmetics Containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids as Ingredients. The link to this FDA document is also readily accessible in our Reference Room  (please consider it required reading).

Our Lactic Acid 90% is a USP (Pharmaceutical) Grade material, but it becomes Technical/Cosmetic Grade when we repackage it as we are not a pharmaceutical repackaging facility.

Our Customers Say...
Hi, I have to say that i am very pleased with my order. Not only are they of good quality but they are reasonbly and affordably priced. I was so impressed with how fast i received my order, it was really quick, i was expecting to get my products in 4 days or so, but to my surprise i received it in 2 days. This was my first order and it won't be my last! I am a customer for life, thanks again for the great service and shipping.

I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.

Amy Irons

I received my first order and was SO suprised to find your "thank you" gift enclosed.

You folks know your stuff. Yes, I really needed everything you sent in that "thank you" package.

It's those small thoughtful things and your fair-priced products that will keep me coming back for more. :-)

I've ordered from Lotioncrafters twice and I have to say, I am impressed at how fast they get your product out to you. As long as they continue to give this type of service, I will continue to be a loyal customer.

Thanks a bunch LC!!!
