Benefits of Lactic acid in skincare


Lactic acid works by increasing the rate of skin turnover, causing new and younger-looking skin to grow. It also helps your new skin to have better moisture holding capability.

Lactic Acid Skincare Benefits OM-SE Natural Active Skincare

You’ll find lactic acid in our Hydrating Face Mist. We dose it low to smooth out the skin and to make it glow, and keeping the formula pH-balanced at 4.5 

Using lactic acid in skincare dates back to Ancient Egypt when Cleopatra apparently bathed in milk for softer, smoother skin. However, fellow Swede and chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele was the first to isolate the compound from sour milk, and in the late 1800s, German pharmacist Boehringer Ingelheim uncovered that lactic acid also was a byproduct of fermented sugar–which is the vegan-friendly version we are using.
