Inside Orgasol® Pure

As many AHAs, lactic acid is known as a versatile ingredient with effect ranging from hydration to anti-aging.

Depending on the conditions and the concentrations, lactic acid has the ability to:

  • Moisturize the skin as a humectant, which supports the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF),

  • Refine fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen growth.

  • And improve the skin texture through exfoliation and cell renewal as it could dissolve dead cells from the top layers of the skin.
