Using an exfoliating peel can be a great way to up the glow factor of your skin and gently slough off the outer layer of dry, dead skin to reveal softer, smoother, and more hydrated skin. Lactic acid is a great option for an exfoliating peel because it is one of the gentlest alpha hydroxy acids and is still exfoliating as well as mildly hydrating.
5 Reasons to use an Exfoliating Peel
- Regular exfoliation reveals more smooth and clear skin
- Increase the absorption of your other targeted skincare products
- Promotes more hydrated skin
- May help reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- May help reduce discoloration and uneven skin tone

This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time.
This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic.
Note: While Lactic Acid can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD’s Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a reference.
Apply up to once per day (we use it twice a week), ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance. Avoid contact with eyes. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
