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.

Doris Vienneau, (None)

We had a small problem with our recent order and called customer support today. They apologized profusely for the issue and said they would call back with a resolution. They called back quickly with an excellent resolution. I absolutely couldn\'t be more happy with them. If they carry what I need I will NEVER buy it from anyone else. I am sold on LotionCrafter!
Vicky Anglin(http://www.simplegoodssoap.com)

I am a newbie at lotion malling and really appreciate the information provided by Lotioncrafters. I purchased Lotion Making 101 and Jenny was kind enough to make sure I got the ebook without having to use my ancient desktop. I highly recommend the book. It makes the process and ingredient possibilities very clear. And the quick shipping is fabulous. Again, thank you.
Mollie

This company is absolutely amazing. Time of order vs. time of delivery is one of my number one determiners for using different companies. Lotioncrafter is insanely fast with completing orders. The staff is also extremely friendly and knowledgeable when you call. I give them 5 stars and highly recommend them. High quality products, fast turn time, excellent customer service!
