L (+)-Lactic Acid, 90%  USP
CAS: 50-21-5

New and Improved!  We're now offering Lactic Acid 90% -- made to Pharmaceutical Grade standards!  

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 or at an inappropriate strength can seriously burn your skin! 

Caution: Do not directly apply Lactic Acid 90% onto your skin. It is strongly acidic. This will BURN!  This product should be added to a formulation at the recommended usage rate.

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.
