lactic acid. An alpha hydroxy acid extracted from milk, though most forms used in cosmetics are synthetic. It exfoliates cells on the surface of skin by breaking down the material that holds skin cells together. It may irritate mucous membranes and cause irritation. See AHA.

this is on paula's fabulous website...all you need t know about the chemicals you put on your face is in the extensive ingredient list.

in my personal opinion, ALWAYS check before putting something on your skin...remember, the skin on our faces are living, breathing things! be gentle with your face no matter how bad your acne is.

harmony facial FOAM - that's the explanation for soapy

lactic acid as an ingredient in products doesn't have the same effect as lactic acid sold in its pure form. of course it won't burn or tingle

and be careful w/ products you find in basement - who knows why they're in there. and check the expiry date
