Q - Is lactic acid bad?
A - Not at doses of less than 5 percent. Lactic acid is the only AHA recognized by the skin. Our muscles make it along with other cells, and it is frequently deposited in the skin. In fact, it is a natural moisturizer. Like so many ingredients, the best result come from small doses. When used daily at concentrations above 5 percent, it starts to burn the skin, triggers exfoliation, and promotes skin starvation just like glycolic acid.
