Now through a special process Lactique captures the best of these milk-derived aspects in their skin care products. One important component is lactic acid produced during the process. Lactic acid is a natural alpha-hydroxy acid which quickly penetrates and absorbs into the skin to aid in the gentle exfoliation and removal of dead skin cells. This promotes healthy skin cell turnover. Lactique's products also contain healthy proteins, vitamins, and natural oils which help hydrate and moisturize the skin, leaving it feeling smoother and softer.
