History of Lactic Acid Peels

posted in: Peels

Cleopatra was an ancient egyptian queen known for her beautiful skin, and it is rumored that she got that perfect complexion by bathing daily in soured goats milk and honey. And we know that the wife of the Roman Emperor Nero also took daily milk baths to keep her skin young and soft.

Although the ancients didn’t know why bathing in milk worked, it was the Lactic Acid in the milk that exfoliated away dead, dry skin cells, and was the original Lactic acid peel!

Today our Lactic Acid Gel Peel 10% is derived from soy and various fruit sources, but it works the same way: removing dry, flaky build up and then acting as a humectant to draw more moisture to the healthy layers of skin!
