Institut L-Lactic Cleanser is a gentle foaming cleanser and light exfoliator suitable for all skin types, especially those that are sensitive and irritated. Formulated with the chirally correct form of lactic acid, L-lactic Acid is the purest form of this type of alpha-hydroxy acid which makes it safe for sensitive and delicate skin types to exfoliate and decongest the skin.
Key benefits of Institut L-Lactic Cleanser :
- Deeply hydrates & nourishes
- Exfoliates & decongests problematic skin
- Reduces irritation & sensitivity
- Strengthens skin integrity
Lactic Acid works by sloughing away dead skin cells, impurities, and sebum. By encouraging new cells to surface, this acid promotes a radiant complexion and more even tone. The hydrating properties of Lactic Acid are supplemented in this cleanser by extracts of Raspberry, Soya Bean Oil, Vitamin E, and Goji Berry. Also developed with Vitamin B5, this cleanser not only removes impurities and promotes hydration, but also nourishes and strengthens the health of the skin. Seaweed Extract is a powerful superfood ingredient that reacts with proteins in the skin to form a protective barrier and further lock in moisture.
The hydrating and nourishing properties of Institut L-Lactic Cleanser make it safe to use daily and perfect for mature, sensitive, irritated, or delicate skin types.
How to use Institut L-Lactic Cleanser :
- Squeeze a pea-sized amount onto wet hands.
- Lather over the face, avoiding the eye area.
- Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
- Follow with your chosen serum or moisturizer.
What is the difference between Lactic Acid and glycolic acid?
Both are exfoliating alpha-hydroxy acids, but glycolic acid is more active. Lactic Acid is less concentrated, less irritating, more moisturizing, and more gentle, making this exfoliant perfect for delicate or sensitive skin.
We recommend using Institut L-Lactic Cleanser in combination with other Institut products, such as Age Defense SPF 50+, to protect the skin from damaging environmental aggressors. Institut correcting products can complement the use of Institut L-Lactic Cleanser in fighting aging, skin damage, and blemishes. Institut Even Blend Serum assists in the evening the skin tone, while Multi-Active Mist deeply hydrates and nourishes dehydrated and sensitized skin types. Institut Retinol Serum fights acne and associated skin concerns.
