The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% HA 2%
Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% HA 2% offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation.
The Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative helps to reduce irritation associated with facial acid use, including alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid. Please note that Tasmanian Pepperberry varies in colour seasonally, and this colour variation may be apparent in The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% HA
Offering gentle – yet extraordinary – exfoliation with lactic acid (an alpha hydroxyl acid) this lightweight serum stimulates cell regeneration to reduce pigmentation, diminish acne scars and age spots and improve overall skin texture. Don’t be perturbed by the irritation often associated with acid use – The Ordinary’s Lactic Acid 10% HA contains purified Tasmanian pepperberry to reduce signs of inflammation and soothe the sensitivity sometimes caused by exfoliation. Also enhanced with heroic hydrating ingredient hyaluronic acid, this super-charged serum strengthens the lipid barrier to improve the skin’s ability to attract and retain moisture.
HOW TO USE
Apply once per day, ideally in the evening. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician.
